Given the current state of the Alberta and Saskatchewan economies, the prairie provinces may think they won’t be asked to do more on climate change to address international commitments. However, if the Trudeau government is serious about meeting Canada’s global environmental commitments, Alberta and Saskatchewan should be very concerned. What type of strategy should Canada and the provinces adopt to reduce emissions without hobbling the Canadian economy?
As Director of the Centre for Natural Resources Policy, Trevor McLeod investigates and makes recommendations on policies that will champion the responsible development of the West’s natural resources. Trevor has worked in corporate and natural resources law, regulatory compliance in forestry, and in the Alberta Department of Energy, focusing on energy market diversification.
A native of Meadow Lake, Sask., he holds a B.A. and a J.D. from the University of Saskatchewan and a Masters degree in law from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. His nuanced understanding of the issues facing natural resource development in western Canada helps to deliver practical solutions.
