Climate experts say Canadians aren't likely to feel any impact from an agreement signed on the weekend in Paris to limit global warming.

Climate experts say Canadians aren’t likely to feel any impact from an agreement signed on the weekend in Paris to limit global warming.

They say whatever comes out of a meeting between the provinces and the federal government will probably make the most difference to average people.

It’s expected that’s where carbon pricing and industry regulation that would filter down to gas pumps and heating bills will be discussed.

Some experts say that even those changes, if done right, won’t have a huge effect on the overall purchasing power of Canadian consumers.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised to have that meeting with the provinces and territories within 90 days of the end of the Paris talks.
