Canada to Work With U.S. to Cut Carbon Emissions, Minister Says

Canada wants to work with the U.S. to cut greenhouse-gas emissions from the oilsands in Alberta, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver said today.

Oliver, who met with U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz in Washington, said his nation has already agreed to curb emissions, in line with the pledges made by the U.S., and he outlined the actions the country has taken to reduce reliance on coal.

The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry oilsands from Alberta across the U.S. to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
