OTTAWA, Ontario – The Latest on President Barack Obama's summit Wednesday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (all times local):
The leaders of Canada, the U.S., and Mexico are spelling out how their nations will work together to curb global warming.

That's a significant leap from last year's 37 percent.
They're pledging to accelerate cross-border transmission projects, strengthen energy efficiency standards, and emphasize more efficient products and cleaner vehicles in government purchases.
They say North America has the "capacity, resources and the moral imperative" to build on that agreement.
President Barack Obama has arrived in Ottawa, Ontario, for a summit with the leaders of Canada and Mexico.
Trade, the environment and fallout from Britain's decision to leave the European Union are expected to top Wednesday's talks in the Canadian capital with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (PAYN'-yuh nee-EH'-toh).
The attack on a Turkish airport that killed 41 people the day before the summit is also expected to add urgency to discussions about how North America's neighbors can collectively enhance security.
