1. The federal government is developing a Clean Fuel Standard. In short: it will make the fuels that heat our homes and power our cars cleaner. It’s also the single biggest carbon-fighting policy in Canada’s national climate plan, aiming to reduce carbon pollution by 30 million tonnes in 2030. That’s equal to taking more than…

EVchoice.ca urges auto industry to be part of the solution, not obstacle OTTAWA September 12, 2017  — Even though Canadians are eager to purchase electric vehicles (EVs), they don’t have anywhere near the variety, selection, or access to the non-polluting cars that Americans enjoy. That needs to change, argue five leading Canadian organizations that are…

Last month, Ottawa officially kicked off work on a national strategy for zero-emission cars. And this week, a thoughtful report from Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission said that offering incentives to Canadians who buy those cars doesn’t make much sense. Our take? A national game plan to get more electric vehicles (EVs) on Canada’s roads is essential,…

On Thursday, the federal government published its plans to get a price on carbon in all parts of Canada. The proposal represents a big step forward on a key climate commitment, and the approach Ottawa has chosen is a promising one. First, some background on the story thus far: The Trudeau government’s carbon pricing saga…

If you want proof that carbon pricing is both an environmental and economic solution, take a walk through the headquarters of Markham-based Pond Technologies. What you’ll find are containers and tanks bubbling green with algae that efficiently suck up greenhouse-gas emissions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The company has spent years perfecting the process of…

Let’s start with a prediction: Any move Ottawa makes toward a price on carbon pollution will be greeted with a chorus of concerns about competitiveness. Expect to hear that companies will be at risk. That some will pull up stakes and move to jurisdictions where they can pollute more. And that we’ll all be poorer…

We look forward to hearing from you.
