There is a federal Emissions Cap policy being considered that could have serious negative consequences for hundreds of thousands of Canadian energy workers and our nation's entire economy.

The proposed policy will indirectly put a hard cap on the amount of oil and natural gas that Canada can produce and thereby put a strict limit on one of our nation’s largest and most important industries.

Canadians don’t have to choose between supporting energy workers and protecting the planet.

We can do both.

Here's what some of Canada's prominent thought-leaders have to say on the matter:

"The proposed emissions cap will make Canada uncompetitive in the fight for the global capital that actually encourages investment in net-zero technologies, some of which do not yet exist at scale in the market".

"A step backwards for climate policy. The [oil and gas] cap is a wedge issue, not an efficient means of lowering GHGs, and further erodes carbon pricing."
