Aligning Aspirations: An Ecofiscal Approach to the GHG Challenge
Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission and the Canada West Foundation present Aligning Aspirations: An Ecofiscal Approach to the GHG Challenge.
The existing debate in Canada suggests that we need to choose between a strong economy and a healthy environment. This is a false choice—one that ignores the interdependence of our economic prosperity and environmental performance.
Join us for a lively panel discussion on the opportunity that “ecofiscal” policies (including carbon pricing) present for tackling significant economic and environmental challenges—and what this could mean for addressing GHG emissions in Alberta.
Speakers include Steve MacDonald, Chief Advisor to the Premier, Energy and Climate Change, Government of Alberta, Andrew Leach, Associate Professor, University of Alberta School of Business, and Leon Zupan, Chief Operating Officer, Liquids Pipelines, Enbridge. Minister McQueen will give closing remarks.
