Canada 2020′s April 2013 event, How to sell carbon pricing to Canadians showed the time is right to talk seriously about climate change in this country.
How do Canadians really feel about climate change? Whom do they think should take the lead on addressing it? And what is the best mechanism to do so?
At this event, Canada 2020 will discuss our new poll tackling these questions and more. Comparative data from the U.S. will help place Canadians’ views in context and shed light on the prospects for international cooperation.
This event is made possible through the generous support of The McCall MacBain Foundation, Bombardier Transportation, Teck and individual donors.
