Abstract:

Climate and environment were not hot topics during the recent Federal election.  But Canada needs to get serious about developing a strategy to address our climate issues, given pressure from our peers in the international community, and the necessity of regaining the trust of our customers for our energy products.  We will examine Canadian options to reduce GHG emissions and face climate issues, and define three major ideas that our new government could take to COP 21 in Paris next month.
