Canada says it is disappointed on U.S. decision on Paris pact

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada is “deeply disappointed” by U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, but will push ahead with measures to fight global warming, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said on Thursday.

“Canada is deeply disappointed at the U.S. position. The Paris agreement is a good deal for Canada and it’s a good deal for the world,” a grim-faced McKenna told reporters. “No one country can stop action on climate change.”
