Energy security and climate: what do Canadians think?
Globally, Canada is being asked to contribute to strengthening the world’s energy security. Domestically, citizens are concerned about their own energy security. We still must move forward on emission reductions. It will be no easy feat to address both of these imperatives, but policy-makers have no choice.
If inflationary and economic challenges continue, politicians will face a very discontented electorate. In addition to the discontent on affordability, Canadians’ ambition on climate action is becoming more muted, write Monica Gattinger and Nik Nanos. Photograph courtesy of Pixabay
