Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced antagonistic provincial leaders at climate talks Thursday over his plans to set a national carbon price in order to meet an international commitment to slash CO2 emissions.Ten provinces and three territories are represented at the table, each with vastly different economic circumstances and goals, pushing their own tailored approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to help keep global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.Going into the meeting, the premier of Newfoundland province, Dwight Ball, highlighted some of the divisions.Backed by strong public support, the prime minister was expected to push for a national carbon price floor, reportedly about Can$15 per metric ton.Trudeau does not want to sow divisions between Canada's regions, notably east versus west.
