In the tragedy of COVID-19, there is a sliver of hope that we could effect a clean energy transition for the long term. Possibility exists now to turn this hiatus of trust and co-operation into a unique opportunity to redefine the role of fossil fuels and its contributions to our national economic output. The time has come for Canadians to demand that our leaders take the climate threat as seriously as the virus and use the existing fiscal capacity to engage public and private capital to finance a low carbon energy economy. This requires fresh thinking and bold actions. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright

The oilsands in Fort McMurray, Alta. The Government of Canada is in the midst of preparing a multi-billion-dollar bailout of the oil and gas industry. Herein lies a historic opportunity for Canada’s oil and gas sector to craft a new future that aligns with Canada’s aspiration to lower greenhouse gas emissions and yet ensure transformation of the sector that is orderly, supportive of workers and the social needs of communities dependent on the sector, writes Jatin Nathwani.

Recall history. Oil was discovered in Ontario in 1865. Today, oil extraction in Ontario is no longer of any economic significance and, yet, Ontario continues to thrive. There is no reason to assume that a different economic future for Alberta or Saskatchewan is not possible. The Hill Times photograhh by Andrew Meade
