Canadian ideas : leveraging our strengths / Honorable Wayne Easter, chair.: XC26-1/1-431-1E-PDF

"In 2019, growing concerns about climate change risks spurred demonstrations across the world and prompted parliaments in Canada and many other countries to declare a “climate emergency.” It was within this context that, in Summer 2019, the Standing Committee on Finance from the 42nd Parliament invited Canadians to share their proposals for the 2020 federal budget, notably in relation to the “required transition to a low-carbon economy.” On 29 January 2020, the Standing Committee on Finance of the 43rd Parliament (the committee) adopted a motion to consider these proposals as part of its pre-budget consultations in advance of the 2020 federal budget"--Introduction, page 17.
