The Canada We Want in 2020 Speaker Series: How to sell carbon pricing to Canadians

Elizabeth May participated in a panel on April 17th, 2013, discussing carbon pricing in Canada. She was joined by the Hon. Jean Charest, Kathryn Harrison, Eric Newell, and Bob Inglis.

The magnitude of the carbon crisis is such that every possible tool needs to be available to policy makers as they craft their response.

The issue of carbon pricing is intensely polarized in Canada.

This panel projected forward and addressed the challenges and opportunities in moving beyond such polarization to develop a more constructive dialogue around carbon, climate and our energy future.

They discussed how carbon pricing can be brought back into the stable of acceptable policy options at a federal level.
