Please join Payne Institute Senior Research Associate Sara Hastings-Simon, David Keith, and Ed Whittingham, as they welcome Mark Jaccard, a professor at Simon Fraser University where he currently directs the School of Resource and Environmental Management, presenting a webinar titled Canada’s New Climate Plan on Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 11:00am – 12:00 p.m. MT.
Canada’s new climate plan is big and bold. Will it deliver on our climate goals? Will it lead to “a healthy economy” as its title suggests, or crush it? What does a $170 per tonne carbon price by 2030 mean for Canadian industry? Is this a cost-effective way to cut emissions and get us to net zero? And, is it politically stable or might it be overturned with the next election?
