Catching a Rising Tide: A Western Energy Vision for Canada
Released: October 12, 2011
Catching a Rising Tide: A Western Energy Vision for Canada draws from one-on-one conversations with 50 leading western Canadian experts in energy and the environment who share their vision for energy.
With sections devoted to supply and demand, sustainable and responsible energy and transforming energy prosperity to benefit all of Canada, authors Sheila O'Brien and Shawna Ritchie highlight a number of key leverage points to enable us to move from our current reality toward the vision for energy inspired by the participants.
Canada has the opportunity to become a supplier of choice for energy products, services and expertise, supported by environmental and social records that define our values as a nation and give us a stronger voice internationally. However, achieving this vision will be a challenge for all Canadians regardless of where they live. As the Foundation’s President and CEO, Dr. Roger Gibbins explains, Catching a Rising Tide, “provides a model for western Canadian thought leadership on the big national policy issues of the day, setting out creative options rather than narrow prescriptions.”
