From commitments to action, what can Canadians expect on climate action?
In December 2016, the Prime Minister and Premiers announced a national plan to grow the economy, meet its emissions reduction targets under the Paris Agreement, and adapt to a changing climate: the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. We know the Framework includes plans to price carbon, phase out coal-fired plants, grow the clean tech sector, and increase renewable energy supply (among others), but how will Canada turn these commitments into action? In this Carbon Talk, MP Jonathan Wilkinson will discuss key components of the framework, progress, and what Canadians can expect on climate action.
Join us for a free public dialogue with Jonathan Wilkinson, Member of Parliament for North Vancouver and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna.
Can't make it in person? Carbon Talks will be webcast live, thanks to the support of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions. Webcast link: http://www.youtube.com/user/carbontalks/live (Follow the conversation on Twitter at @CarbonTalks)
