The Narwhal explains the federal budget’s climate measures

Big climate and energy measures were revealed in the federal budget tabled on Monday. Tune in here for our breakdown of the key takeaways

The Narwhal held a special live video event on Monday to help you make sense of the climate and energy measures announced in the federal budget.

Reporter Fatima Syed — whose byline you might recognize from our explainer on the Supreme Court carbon pricing ruling — brought her scrutiny skills to the latest, greatest goings-on in the nation’s capital. She was joined by three all-star guests: Margot Hurlbert, Sara Hastings-Simon and Senator Rosa Galvez.

Hurlbert is the Canada Research Chair in Climate Change, Energy and Sustainability Policy and has helped craft numerous reports for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Hastings-Simon, a research fellow at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, brought her experience in science, business and policy to break down how we can make low-carbon energy transitions. Senator Galvez is a leading expert on the impacts of pollution on human health who, in addition to her Senate duties, works as a professor at Université Laval à Québec.
