The G7 nations have committed to eliminating the use of fossil fuels by 2100.

What Canada’s premiers said in July is wrong — there are simple answers to developing a national energy strategy — but what’s difficult is making tough decisions.

While the need for a Canadian energy strategy should be a key federal election issue for all political parties, it’s not just a national version that’s required.

Meteorologist Claire Martin has unleashed a storm of criticism a­gainst Tom Mulcair over the NDP leader’s open-ended stand on oil-pipeline expansion in the Vancouver area.
