The Agenda with Steve Paikin

In December, the Liberal government announced its bold new approach to combat climate change. The $15 billion plan will see the price on carbon rise to $170 a tonne by 2030 in an effort to reduce emissions in that time to 32 per cent. Steve Paikin speaks to Minister of Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson about the criticism the new plan has received, and what Canada's real responsibilities are in tackling climate change.
