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.

We hear it time and time again:
“These are the stories that need to be told and you are some of the only ones telling them,” John, a new member of The Narwhal, wrote in to say.

Investigating stories others aren’t. Diving deep to find solutions to the climate crisis. Sending journalists to report from remote locations for days and sometimes weeks on end. These are the core tenets of what we do here at The Narwhal. It’s also the kind of work that takes time and resources to pull off.

That might sound obvious, but it’s far from reality in many shrinking and cash-strapped Canadian newsrooms. So what’s The Narwhal’s secret sauce? Thousands of members like John who support our non-profit, ad-free journalism by giving whatever they can afford each month (or year).

But here’s the thing: just two per cent of The Narwhal’s readers step up to keep our stories free for all to read. Will you join the two per cent and become a member of The Narwhal today?
