Putting a Price on Carbon Web Seminar Jan. 27

17 12 2014

Dear Climate Activists in Nova Scotia,

I have great news! Citizens’ Climate Lobby is co-sponsoring a Carbon Price Forum moderated by Stephen Lewis. This is an enjoyable way to fill in all the details regarding carbon pricing through attending or watching an interesting and eloquent event. The forum will take place on Tuesday, January 27 from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.  in Toronto but livestreamed and taped so you can see it in Ottawa or at home. I invite you to mark it in your calendar.

As you probably know, there is mounting pressure from industry, media, the IMF and civil society groups like CCL for Canada to put a price on carbon. You may have caught the editorial in the Globe and Mail on Saturday: Why Stephen Harper should love carbon taxes – http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/editorials/how-stephen-harper-can-have-the-oil-sands-and-lower-ghgs-too/article22064617/

Our carbon pricing debate will bring in top Canadian experts to discuss how to design an effective carbon pricing mechanism for our country. I encourage you to attend or watch. Here are the details:
