From a climate perspective, two big events set the context for Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s second budget. In December, Prime Minister Trudeau got his provincial and territorial counterparts (well, most of them) to agree to a new national climate plan, a Canadian first. And in January, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of…

Last December, most premiers and the prime minister adopted a landmark national climate plan to cut carbon pollution and spur clean growth. For Canada’s clean energy sector, a national climate plan is incredibly welcome. It signals to developers and investors that Canada is an important market for climate solutions, and that the demand for clean…

It’s early morning, 2067. You tap your phone to silence the buzzing alarm, which activates your home’s automated ‘wake up’ setting.

China, for one, plans to add as many EVs next year as exist in the entire world today. And considering that transportation represents…

Recent Canadian headlines reveal a country trying to figure out how to spur clean economic growth in a way that includes and empowers the people, communities and sectors that built Canada into the strong nation it is today. Pipelines, LNG plants, ocean protection and the link between carbon pricing and competitiveness are all flashpoints in…
