A carbon budget for Canada

A collaborative framework for federal and provincial climate leadership

Last month,  we recommended the analysis of carbon budgets coming out of Simon Fraser University. West Coast Environmental Law practice, an organisation we equally admire and support, also bring their analyses to the table. Again, with the carbon budget for Canada, they propose ideas on how to deliver it, looking at the responsibilities of the Federal and provincial governments, their communications, the legal and financial requirements to ensure targets are met. Looking at conditions for best practices in other countries like the UK, the new government is at a ripe time to show leadership and gutsy policies.

We’re recruiting!
