Nicholas Rivers, 2008 Trudeau scholar and Canada Research Chair in Climate and Energy Policy at the University of Ottawa, published an op-ed in The Globe and Mail today on Ontario's action plan on climate change.

He writes, "Transitioning to a low-carbon economy will be an immense challenge. Ontario’s climate plan is one of the first attempts by any Canadian government to seriously grapple with that challenge. Whether it’s a model or a warning for other provinces depends largely on whether the province has learned its lessons from past mismanagement and chooses policies in a transparent and analytical manner."
