Unifor president Jerry Dias is pictured at a press conference at the Ford Connectivity and Innovation Centre in Ottawa on Oct. 8, 2020. The issue of Canada’s potential contributions to electric vehicle supply chains, especially batteries, from the mining of primary components like lithium and other metals, through to design and manufacturing, has been at the centre of discussions about their widespread adoption, write Mark Winfield and Sumeet Sooch.

Canada's federal Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson, pictured Feb. 24, 2020, on the Hill. The federal government’s newly proposed climate change legislation, Bill C-12, would only establish emission reduction targets for 2030 and beyond, and although requiring planning and reporting, does little to advance the achievement of what targets might be set. The government’s initiative on low-carbon fuel standards seems to be faltering, writes Mark Winfield. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
