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.”
