First Ministers Meeting on climate December 2016

OTTAWA—Clean Energy Canada released the following statement in response to the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change released today: QUOTES “For the first time, governments across Canada are working together to hit a national climate target. That’s real progress. “It took leadership from the federal government and many of the premiers to get today’s…

A decade ago, there were only a couple thousand electric vehicles on the road worldwide. Last year, they cruised past a million—and kept going. But that’s nothing compared with what’s to come. China, for one, plans to add as many EVs next year as exist in the entire world today. And considering that transportation represents…

The 150-year history of Confederation is but a speck of time compared to the lifespan of planet earth. Birthdays are a good time to look back, but an even better time to look forward. As Canadians, we sometimes downplay what we have accomplished and underestimate what we can do next. But let’s step outside our…

So perhaps it’s not surprising that Ontario Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault spoke Monday at what the Empire Club…

One of B.C.’s most effective climate policies is so affordable that most British Columbians don’t even realize it exists. What’s more, B.C. is the only province in Canada currently employing it. Or rather, it was. A clean fuel standard, which the federal government announced it will be expanding and implementing nationwide, ensures every litre of…

We look forward to hearing from you.
