One of seven premiers who asked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to pause the consumer carbon price increase is now asking him for a meeting to discuss alternatives.

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey penned a letter to Mr. Trudeau over the weekend asking for an “emergency meeting of leaders.”

The four Atlantic premiers and the leaders in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario asked Mr. Trudeau not to increase the federal consumer carbon price by $15 per tonne today.

Many of them have long opposed any carbon levy, but say the affordability crisis plaguing Canadians is reason to halt the increase.
