Video: Implementing the Pan-Canadian Framework on Climate Change

June 08, 2017

How do we move from accord and policy into measures that reduce emissions in Canada?

In December 2016, the Prime Minister and Premiers announced a national plan to grow the economy, meet national emissions reduction targets under the Paris Agreement, and adapt to a changing climate: the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. We know the Framework includes plans to price carbon, phase out coal-fired plants, grow the clean tech sector, and increase the supply of renewable energy supply, but how will Canada turn these commitments into action? In this Carbon Talk, MP Jonathan Wilkinson will discuss key components of the framework, progress, and what Canadians can expect on climate action.

Panelist

Jonathan Wilkinson, Member of Parliament for North Vancouver and  Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change
