California, Canada join in fighting climate change
LOS ANGELES – (INT) – At the Summit of the Americas Thursday, California and Canada joined in a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) fighting climate change.
It’s aimed at reducing pollution, cutting back on plastic waste, advancing zero-emission vehicles, protecting the environment and building climate resilience.
Governor Newsom and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau discussed California and Canada’s shared values, including world-leading climate action, protecting fundamental rights, adopting strong gun safety measures and building an economy that embraces diversity and inclusivity.
Newsom declared “This partnership with Canada is a vital step on California’s path to a cleaner, greener future and is the latest expression of our shared values.”
The partnership is grounded in respect for Indigenous Peoples recognizing their essential role in climate action and nature protection, the Memorandum of Cooperation stated.
