You're invited: Canada’s New Climate Plan


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?  

Join David, Sara, Ed, and special guest Mark JaccardThursday, February 4 at 11 a.m. MST / 1 p.m. EST on Energy vs Climate to examine Canada’s new climate policy and what we do (and don’t) know about the impact of carbon prices.  

Mark Jaccard is a professor at Simon Fraser University where he currently directs the School of Resource and Environmental Management. He has a PhD is in energy economics from the University of Grenoble, and his research focus is the design and application of energy-economy models for assessing climate policies. Internationally, Mark has served on the IPCC, the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development, and the Global Energy Assessment, and domestically on the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy and the Canadian Institute for Climate Choices. From 1992-1997 he served as the Chair and CEO of the British Columbia Utilities Commission. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and the CD Howe Institute, and in 2009 was named British Columbia Academic of the Year. In 2006, his book, Sustainable Fossil Fuels won the Donner Prize for top policy book in Canada. His latest book is The Citizen’s Guide for Climate Success
