Saskatchewan and Climate Change: looking at the government’s plan

For many years, our church has offered theological, scriptural and moral reasons for reducing use of fossil fuels. We Canadians are, after all, the highest per capita carbon emitters in the world.

Here’s some recent recommended reading for SK people on this question; the SK Environmental Society has released a paper looking at the provincial government’s climate change plan.

They write, “The Saskatchewan government released their Climate Change White Paper on October 18th, 2016.  The paper is positioned as an “alternative approach to Prime Minister Trudeau’s national carbon tax”. It is no secret that the Saskatchewan government is strongly opposed to a national carbon price. In the press release accompanying the report Premier Wall asserts, “Make no mistake – a carbon tax will harm Saskatchewan.”

But will it? This paper examines that claim.
