Have your say in Canada’s energy future

June 30, 2010 | By

The Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources invites all Canadians to have a say in the country’s energy future.

This request for a national discussion on energy came from the
committee’s interim report entitled “Attention Canada!”, followed by
nearly nine months of testimony from Canadian energy thinkers, research
institutions and other stakeholders. The press release explains that:
“Canada requires a comprehensive Canadian Sustainable Energy Strategy

“The future of energy in Canada is something that affects us all. From
turning on a light, driving our cars to work, and picking up our
groceries at the local supermarket, we are consuming the outputs of
Canada’s renewable and non-renewable energy sectors,” says Committee
chair senator W. David Angus. “One of our main goals with this report
is to increase the energy literacy of Canadians, with the intent of
working together to build a secure, competitive, sustainable and
innovative strategy for Canada.”

The committee will consult Canadians in all spectrums throughout the
country to build on the interim report. Its goal is to increase the
energy discussion and develop a road map for Canada’s energy future.
The final report from the committee is expected to be complete in June
