Ministers Patty Hajdu (Indigenous services), Jonathan Wilkinson (energy) and Dan Vandal (Northern affairs) respond to questions from reporters in Charlottetown as a three-day meeting of the federal cabinet continues. They discuss assistance to wildfire evacuees in the Northwest Territories and British Columbia. Hajdu is also asked about the reported directive for federal ministers to identify $15 billion in spending cuts. Wilkinson faces questions as well on the plan to implement a cap on oil and gas sector emissions, and opposition from Atlantic provinces to clean fuel regulations that came into effect on July 1, 2023.
