Alberta Election: Where Do the Parties Stand on Energy?


May 24 2023 • 35 mins

This week on the podcast our special guest is John Dillon, former Senior Vice President, Policy and Corporate Counsel at Business Council of Canada.

First, John joins Jackie and Peter in a discussion about the Alberta Election that is being held on May 29, 2023.  What can we learn from the past record of the two leading parties, the United Conservative Party (UCP) and the New Democratic Party (NDP)? What do we know about their plans for the future of Alberta’s energy industry?

Next, we ask John to reflect on his 32 years at the forefront of climate change policy in Canada.  How have corporate attitudes towards reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions changed over that time? What policy changes are needed for Canada to make big reductions in GHG emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero by 2050?
