Summary:

  • Canada has competitive advantages in its sectors when it comes to greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions.
  • When Canada’s production is displaced due to policy, domestic greenhouse gas emissions decrease while global emissions increase
  • Reducing regulatory and tax burdens increase employment and net profit
  • It increases production in Canada where our emissions are lower which leads to higher domestic emissions but lower global emissions
  • Increase domestic emissions can be offset somewhere else
