Over the past several months the Trudeau government has made some major choices about energy and environmental policy for Canada: it rejected one oil sands pipeline, approved two, and came to an agreement with the provinces on a climate plan that makes substantial progress towards meeting Canada’s international targets. This panel of UBC experts and community representatives assesses these decisions and discusses what’s next.
