Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and then U.S.-vice president Joe Biden, pictured on Dec. 8, 2016, on the Hill. President-elect Biden committed to bring the U.S. back into the Paris agreement, to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and to reduce the carbon intensity of the electricity sector. This aligns with Ottawa’s commitments. Collaborating on these issues could advance both countries’ energy and climate objectives. The Hill Times file photograph by Jake Wright

Meanwhile, Canada hasn’t built a single LNG export terminal or gotten oil to tidewater for export to markets beyond North America, writes Monica Gattinger. Photograph courtesy of Pixabay

A participant in the United We Roll truck convoy on Feb. 19 on Parliament Hill protests Bill C-69, to overhaul the environmental assessment process, and C-48, on an oil-tanker moratorium off the B.C. coast. The controversy surrounding C-69 suggests governments have a lot of work to do to get communities onside with green infrastructure projects, say Michael Cleland and Monica Gattinger.

Bill C-69, the federal government’s sweeping reform of energy regulation and environmental assessment, could make for a good case study of political scientist Francis Fukuyama’s critique, writes Monica Gattinger.

Former Liberal leader Stephane Dion introduces his Green Shift, carbon-tax plan on Parliament Hill in Ottawa Canada June 19 2008. The election results that year indicate this plan might not have had the right balance that Monica Gattinger writes is needed to be taken with Canada's energy policy.

The Trudeau Liberals have some mandate-defining choices to make on energy, not the least of which is whether they will give the green light to the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion to carry crude oil from Alberta’s oilsands to Burnaby and whether they will approve the Pacific NorthWest liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in northwestern British Columbia, writes Monica Gattinger.
