SOLD OUT- Bridging Divides: In Search of Sound Public Policies for Energy and Environment in Canada

Alternate Text or Title of article
Calgary, AB

No topics in Canada are hotter today than new pipelines, carbon pricing, and energy development. There are legitimate policy debates to be had on all of these issues, but opinions seem to be getting more polarized, often lacking all perspectives.

Join us for a pan-Canadian conversation focusing on good policy, solid economics, and concrete evidence featuring a keynote address by David Dodge, followed by two panel discussions. The first panel will focus on on public policies that work for the economy and the environment, and the second will address good public policies for Canada as a whole.

It’s time to have a better conversation around the policy table. If you have a point of view on energy and the environment, this is a must-attend event.
