43rd Annual Premiers’ Conference


HALIFAX, August 2, 2002 – Premiers had a full discussion on the subject of climate change. All provinces and territories will continue to take action on climate change and emphasized that Canadians must act together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

They were in complete agreement on the need for a First Ministers’ Meeting prior to any federal decision on the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol.

At that time, Premiers will share their differing views with the Prime Minister.
