Guy Dauncey Climate Emergency: a 26 Week Transition Program for Canada
On Tuesday, March 3, Guy Dauncey was CCL Canada’s guest on our education call.

Guy’s focus and integrity on solutions and not the doom and gloom is a role model for us all. It certainly seems to be how he stays optimistic.

Featured Letter to the Editor
In late 2019, Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission published  its final report : Bridging the Gap: Real Options for Meeting Canada’s 2030 GHG Target. 
CCL member Austin Tahiliani recently had a letter to the editor published in the Lethbridge Herald using data from that report:  Government must stay committed to carbon pricing
Thank you for publishing Bob Weber’s Canadian Press article about Canada’s progress towards meeting its Paris goals. As David Sawyer accurately points out, regulating emissions and pricing carbon go hand-in-hand — they work most effectively when combined.

Therefore, if Canada wants to be carbon-neutral by 2050, the federal government must continue increasing the price on carbon past 2022. In November 2019, Canada's Ecofiscal Commission released a report outlining how maintaining a progressive price on carbon, while returning all revenues to households, results in the highest GDP growth per capita when compared to other economic policies. At a carbon price of $210/t by 2030, returning all revenue to households each month would make most people, especially those with low income, better off.

To ensure carbon neutrality by 2050 without leaving anyone behind, the federal government must commit to continuing and increasing the price on carbon past 2022.
