VANCOUVER / MUSQUEAM, SQUAMISH & TSLEIL-WAUTUTH TERRITORIES — The results of the 2020 U.S. election mean that Canada and the U.S. will once again be rowing in the same direction on the Paris Agreement and other climate and energy goals. Or will we?

On Nov. 18, two weeks after election day, the Pembina Institute is hosting a webinar on the implications of a new White House administration and Congress for climate change, energy, and Canada’s net-zero emissions future.

This special one-hour event will feature a discussion with leading U.S.-based climate and energy experts from the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the Environmental Defense Fund.

The public and media are invited to attend online or by phone. Registration (free) is required.
