Event description

As the federal government’s legislation to revamp environmental assessments and project reviews (Bill C-69) makes its way through the house, it is being met with mixed reviews from environmentalists and industry alike. Among other items, the details on how carbon emissions will factor in the final decision making remain unclear.

On April 12, Before the Bell hosts Catherine Clark and Susan Delacourt sit down with featured guests to discuss the changes to environmental laws and project reviews, and try to square how this supports Canada’s recently renewed commitment to meet its greenhouse gas emission targets.

Each Before the Bell event features three distinct segments: Susan Delacourt in The Pulse asks opinions of expert guest pundits on pressing issues and interacts with the audience through polling technology to gain their reactions. In The Policy segment, Catherine Clark invites newsmakers to the stage to talk about themed issues from their unique perspectives. In between interviews, the Catherine encourages the audience to submit questions electronically and vote up questions they want answered. After all guests have been interviewed, they remain on stage for the final segment called The People. Here the Catherine engages the newsmakers in discussion by asking the most popular audience generated questions.
