Heather Exner-Pirot raises concerns over the unnecessary regulatory burdens and higher costs facing Canada’s energy sector. She shares her perspective in a Canadian Press article about the government’s announcement of an oil and gas emissions cap framework. 

“It may cost, you know, 20 per cent more to hit a 2030 target versus a 2031 target. Why impose an arbitrary date if they could hit the same emissions target but for hundreds of millions less if it was just one or two years later?”
