Public Lecture ~ Deliberation and Debate Lecture Series: Carbon Pricing in Saskatchewan?

University of Regina

The next installment in the University of Regina's Deliberation and Debate Lecture Series.

Featuring: 

Chris Ragan, Chair, Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission & Associate Professor, Economics, McGill University

Dale Eisler, Senior Policy Fellow, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

Margot Hurlbert, Associate Professor, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

Jeremy Rayner, Director, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

Saskatchewan is the lone jurisdiction in Canada which is refusing to implement a carbon pricing system, and one of two which have refused to sign onto the pan-Canadian framework on clean growth and climate change. Keynote Chris Ragan, Chair of Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission and Associate Professor of Economics at McGill University, will make the case for carbon pricing as the cost-effective way forward on climate policy. His talk will include how competitiveness and fairness issues can be addressed with good policy. Following the keynote presentation will be a panel discussion, moderated by Jeremy Rayner and featuring Margot Hurlbert and Dale Eisler, which will discuss points such as which mechanism might work best in Saskatchewan (carbon tax vs. cap-and- trade) and how best to recycle the revenues to benefit the economy.
