By The Canadian Press, CBC News.

Mexico has shown interest in Quebec's cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gases, and has signed an agreement to learn from the province.

After meeting with the Mexican president on Monday, Premier Philippe Couillard said Mexico sees Quebec's carbon market as an effective way of addressing climate change.

"I was impressed by the strength of his statements," Couillard said, regarding president Enrique Peña Nieto's commitment to setting up a carbon market for his country.
