Article by Jesse Snyder of the Financial Post on how Ottawa’s attempts to gain consensus on big resource projects fails to gain traction, with a quote from Michael Cleland, Senior Fellow for the University of Ottawa Positive Energy initiative.
Interview with Monica Gattinger, Chair of Positive Energy and director of the University of Ottawa's Institute for Science, Society and Policy, to CPAC's Revue Politique, about the Trans Mountain pipeline.
Speech delivered by the Honorable Minister James Carr at our Positive Energy Conference, Public Confidence in Energy Decision-Making: How is Canada Doing?, the final event of the first three years of the Positive Energy project.
This major conference is the final conference marking the first three years of the University of Ottawa’s Positive Energy initiative. It reflects on lessons learned, progress made and the challenges that still remain when it comes to strengthening public confidence in Canadian energy decision-making. This cutting-edge discussion will feature political, corporate, ENGO, Indigenous and public sector leaders as keynote speakers and panelists.
Positive Energy’s latest public opinion survey research explores Canadians’ opinions and attitudes on who should have final say on energy projects, how well the country is doing on balancing competing priorities in energy projects, and key trade-offs in energy decision-making. The findings are of particular relevance in the context of the controversy over the Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipeline and the federal government’s proposed legislation (Bill C-69) to reform energy decision-making.
