Powering Up: How Canada keeps the lights on

"...This data does not show the electricity provinces import from other jurisdictions — only what they generated in 2022. Smaller jurisdictions — such as Nunavut and the Northwest Territories — have a high percentage of fossil fuels on their grids. But because they are sparsely populated their total greenhouse gas emissions arising from electrical generation are still far lower than Ontario and New Brunswick, which have a cleaner mix..."

The climate side of Budget 2024

"...The NDP, Green Party and Bloc Québécois have regularly called for an excess profits tax on the oil and gas industry, but that was not part of this budget. This year’s budget proposes to spend $800 million over five years to launch a new home retrofit program starting in 2025. The new program replaces the federal government’s popular $2..."


Canada can thrive and achieve climate success with or without a carbon tax

"...2. The federal government must focus on implementing the impressive package of economic, policy and regulatory tools that first and foremost position Canada for future economic growth while managing carbon emissions in a meaningful way. These include direct investments in net-zero manufacturing, clean technology investment tax credits, electric vehicle availability legislation, incentives for heat pumps, support for renewable and nuclear power, support for skills training and sustainable jobs, climate-resilient agriculture programs, enhanced methane regulations, an oil sector emissions cap, and more..."
