hill times event

If you will be in Ottawa November 12th, check out this event as part of the Canadian Climate Forum.

This free Hill Times exclusive reader event will assemble a provocative panel to discuss the politics of Canada’s policy on climate change.

Global political leaders are coalescing to address climate change and carbon pricing. In October, China agreed to match the U.S. commitment of $3.1 billion and will become a climate financier. Last summer, the G7 vowed to create a carbon neutral energy system by 2050, and the G20 leaders are under considerable pressure to be forward leaning as they meet a few weeks before COP21.

Will Canada’s policy be changing as a result of mounting global pressure? How do the new players and politics play into Canada’s policy? What role does industry play? These are some of the questions that our panel will address during this important discussion.
