Opinion: net-zero more likely to kill Canada than cure climate

The Canadian government’s Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act establishes a pathway toward that goal by 2050. But don’t hold your breath, University of Ottawa professor Ian Clark says in a Financial Post opinion column. It took a full decade to build 12.5 km of electric light rail in Ottawa. To electrify the rest of Canada’s transportation sector in three decades, as well as our industrial and domestic energy sectors, the new act starts by convening an advisory board to consult with Canadians on the best pathways to this target . . . tick tock.
