The premiers have wrapped up their annual meeting in Quebec City on a green note.

The group emerged from meetings saying all are concerned by rising energy costs, and want to focus on renewable energy.

With that in mind, Nova Scotia will host a a conference for Canada’s energy and environment ministers, sometime before the end of September.

In other news from the conference, Ontario has announced that it will sign on to the Western Climate Initiative, a program that aims to compel companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and already includes British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec and seven U-S states.

BC Premier Gordon Campbell says having Ontario join the Westen Climate Initiative is a major victory.
