Canada's premiers failed to agree on major initiatives to control greenhouse gas emissions at their August 10th meeting in Moncton, New Brunswick. They did however agree to move forward on less controversial steps to slow climate change. Alberta was seen as a holdout on a cap-and-trade system for emissions. Premier Ed Stelmach said although the premiers didn't reach a consensus on that issue, progress still was made. (The provincial and territorial leaders announced progress on biofuel development, more study on carbon sinks through tree planting and agriculture, and participation in a climate registry to reliably measure emissions.)
