Abstract: The topic of the panel is the challenge of future uncertainty and climate policy in Canada. On the policy side, we face uncertainty about how future conditions will undoubtedly be different than what we plan (e.g. Arctic ice is melting or solar power prices dropping faster than expected). On the political side, we also face uncertainty as a change in government fundamentally can alter course on a long-term policy framework (e.g. Doug Ford cancelling Cap & Trade). So there needs to be a balance between entrenching policy to allow it to remain 'sticky'. But also be flexible enough to respond to changing conditions. This panel will discuss these challenges for climate policy in Canada.
