How Canada will meet its Paris Agreement climate-change commitments, while adapting to weather-related changes already impacting the nation, is shaping up to be a major issue in the next federal election. Some provinces have balked at embracing carbon pricing, part of Trudeau’s Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, while other voices argue the Framework simply doesn’t go far enough. Where should the policy conversation go next, given the state of the current public and political debate? Are there some policy solutions that have not been adequately explored; some that have been overhyped? Experts weighed in on these questions during a panel discussion in Ottawa.
This event is part of a series of in-depth conversations on key policy issues that could — or should — form part of the debate in the federal election campaign in 2019, hosted by Policy Options, in partnership with the Max Bell School of Public Policy.
