Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she strongly supports the federal NDP's plan to combat climate change -- just not a cap-and-trade system that could potentially move money out of her province. Notley panned cap-and-trade in a speech in Montreal earlier this week, leading to suggestions of a rift between her and federal leader Tom Mulcair. She explained what she meant in a conference call today from New York, where she is doing a trade mission. (Mulcair's plan would allow provinces to opt out if their efforts to fight climate change were as good or better than a national strategy. Notley says that would make it OK for Alberta's New Democrats.)
