New report shows how success of multi-province energy strategy depends on addressing oilsands expansion plans, including west-to-east pipeline
QUEBEC CITY — As Canada’s premiers meet in Quebec City to discuss climate change, a new report from the Pembina Institute outlines key considerations and challenges for provincial discussions of a Canadian Energy Strategy.

That means infrastructure proposals such as the Energy East pipeline have a significant impact on the federation’s ability to meet climate change objectives. for a multi-province strategy to be credible and effective, it must take the full emissions footprint of fossil fuel projects into account.
