CALGARY, Sept. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Reducing emissions is a goal shared by policymakers across Canada. But getting agreement on how to do that is more contentious. Cap and trade? Or carbon tax? And if we choose a carbon tax, as several jurisdictions have, how do we price it so that it achieves the goal of reducing emissions without distorting and harming the economy?
Noted economist Ross McKitrick and The School of Public Policy will weigh in when they release a groundbreaking report that could become the definitive guide to pricing carbon.
Please note, Dr. McKitrick will release the details of the report via a conference call. The PowerPoint that he will be using will be sent to you when you RSVP for the call.
