Canada’s prime minister said Thursday he hoped to work with US president-elect Barack Obama on a North American deal to curbing greenhouse gas emissions linked to global warming.

“It’s almost essential for Canada to manage this problem in cooperation with the United States because we share the same economy, we share the same continent,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper told reporters.

“And we need a partner in the matters of the environment if we want to make real progress.”

“Given our integrated continental economy, this is an excellent opportunity for Canada to advance its shared agenda and its shared needs … in these areas,” he said.
