About The Report:
Canadian premiers are developing a Canadian energy strategy together that should be finalized at this week’s Council of the Federation meeting (July 15-17, 2015) in St. John’s. The strategy’s primary goal must be to transition away from polluting fossil fuels and foster the continued development of clean, renewable energy.
Unfortunately, recent drafts of the energy strategy show that there may be risks that provinces will allow the construction of oil pipelines in exchange for vague commitments to action on climate change. However, the construction of more tar sands projects and oil pipelines that will last many decades is inconsistent with a global effort or a national plan to tackle climate change in a meaningful way.
