Policy - - Before The Bell/From The Editor -

This edi­tion of The Review ex­plores im­por­tant top­ics that have been dom­i­nat­ing the head­lines: the busi­ness of clean­tech in Canada, en­ergy, the en­vi­ron­ment, and Bill C-69.

More than a year after Bud­get 2017 an­nounced sig­nif­i­cant fund­ing to sup­port the growth of the clean­tech sec­tor, Be­fore the Bell and Dale Smith take a look at where we are and whether or not we are on track to achieve the ob­jec­tives in “Nur­tur­ing Canada’s clean­tech fu­ture.”

Shan­non Watt, di­rec­tor of en­ergy and health pol­icy with the Chem­istry In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion of Canada, writes that grow­ing the clean­tech sec­tor in Canada must also in­clude the chem­istry in­dus­try in “Canada’s Clean Tech Fu­ture needs chem­istry in­dus­try so­lu­tions.”

Su­san Ro­hac, vice pres­i­dent, BDC Clean­tech Prac­tice, helps ex­plain their role in sup­port­ing the growth of the sec­tor in “Up­ping the ante for Cana­dian clean­tech com­pa­nies.”

Ex­pand­ing on the theme of grow­ing clean­tech we shift to look at en­ergy and the en­vi­ron­ment.

Green Party Leader El­iz­a­beth May raises con­cerns over Canada’s abil­ity to meet its com­mit­ments to the Paris Ac­cord in “Mind the gap – How far off is Canada from Paris agree­ment goals?”

Dale Smith for the Sixth Es­tate takes a closer look at the is­sues of en­ergy and the en­vi­ron­ment and ques­tions if Bill C-69 will achieve its goals in “En­ergy and the En­vi­ron­ment: Will Bill C-69 make a dif­fer­ence?”

In a clos­ing fea­ture, Dale Smith cir­cles back to ex­am­ine the im­pact Bill C-69 would have on the Trans Moun­tain pipe­line project in “En­ergy and the En­vi­ron­ment: Kinder Mor­gan in the Crosshairs.”
