Canada and California sign deal to cut vehicle emissions

Canada and California signed a joint agreement to reduce vehicle emissions and speed up the transition to electric cars.

Last summer, the Trump administration had proposed to lower California’s standards on vehicle emissions control, prompting the Canadian government to rethink its initiative.

Automotive businesses expressed concerns over having to work under two different standards and urged the two countries to reach an agreement.

Nevertheless, California invested $238 million in manufacturing electric cars and partnered with Canada’s incentive for a 30 million ton cut-down of emissions by 2030.
