In the debate over climate change and energy in Canada, positions can easily be polarized between those who place priority on reducing our domestic emissions of greenhouse gases and those who wish to develop our energy resources and drive economic growth. 

Are these two pursuits in fact irreconcilable or does a "sweet "spot" exist that can form a foundation of a Canadian strategy that will make the best contribution to both our environment and our prosperity?

This latest panel in the Policy Crunch Series will discuss how best Canada can transition to a less carbon intensive future. Panelists will share their insights and support a discussion on the challenges and opportunities. This event is completely virtual.
