Trump presidency doesn't change need for Canadian carbon price, says Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed Wednesday to work "very closely" with Trump.

"There's been a fourfold increase in trade since NAFTA was signed, so I think there are many elements of NAFTA that have been tremendously successful", he said.

The Liberals have made the fight against climate change one of the motifs of their government since coming to power a year ago, and had a highly sympathetic Democratic partner in Washington under the administration of President Barack Obama. Should provinces not come up with their own plans, the price on carbon would start at $10 for every tonne of greenhouse gas emitted, and would be raised to $50 in 2022.

Trump has assured to boost the size of the U.S. military and drastically raise the number of warships in America's arsenal. "It's actually fairly hard to move to Canada". Trudeau will inevitably need to work closely with the U.S., as he explained in interviews this morning, to safeguard Canada's economic health. For this very matter, Canada has also been praised immensely by the worldwide community.

"We are getting an influx of emails".

"The fact is we heard clearly, from Canadians and from Americans, that people want a fair shot at success", Trudeau said. Countless jokes about people fleeing the country over the election results have circulated on social media, and a local booster in Nova Scotia tried to lure critics of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The real estate mogul, reality TV star and now United States president-elect campaigned on isolationist and protectionist policies that horrified many Canadians.

But Trudeau's openness to trade, refugees and the environment stands in stark contrast to Trump.

Trump has vowed to ease restrictions on the USA fossil fuel industry and cancel payments that had been committed to United Nations climate control patterns.

Speaking to the National Post editorial board on Thursday, Morneau said Canada's federal government will be making the case to the new administration that the USA benefits from trade with Canada every day. The two leaders are expected to speak soon.

"I think the bottom line is let's not panic, let's see what the actual policy decisions are ... and be ready to react and understand such at that time", she said.

"The worst thing that we could be doing right now would be negotiating in public", he said.

Trump's stated position on reviving coal is "an absolute concern from a climate perspective".

Trade issues aside, Trump has also indicated that the United States will have a greater expectation of increased contributions from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members such as Canada.

"Leadership means being able to take the lonely path sometimes".
