Join us for this Webinar discussion, at which Professor Douglas Macdonald will present the findings from his analysis of all five national energy and climate programs to date, from Pierre Trudeau’s National Energy Program to Justin Trudeau’s Pan-Canadian Framework. Based on those findings, Professor Macdonald will present his recommendations for how all parts of the country can start moving down the same path of declining emissions without doing unacceptable harm to national unity.
Moderated by Professor Steve Easterbrook, director of the School of the Environment, the discussion will include how that set of recommendations can be implemented in the new context of the current COVID-19 emergency.
Professor Douglas Macdonald has written extensively on Canadian climate-change policy. His 2007 book, Business and Environmental Politics in Canada, was awarded by the Canadian Political Science Association the Donald Smiley prize for the “best book published in English or French in the field relating to the study of government and politics in 2007.”
