Carbon Pricing North of America
Live Panel Discussion
On Tuesday, November 8th, the United States elected Donald Trump as its next President. This outcome may lead to less U.S. climate policy than would otherwise have occurred. What does this situation mean for Canada’s carbon pricing policies? Can Canada act while the United States doesn’t? We discuss the importance of protecting Canada’s business competitiveness and on how this can be achieved with “smart” carbon pricing. Join us for a panel discussion with Canadian experts as we dig into the details.
