By capping our oil and gas sector’s emissions, Ottawa risks killing the golden goose while getting nothing in return.
To mark this week’s 60th anniversary of the election of the Jean Lesage government in 1962, the Montreal Economic Institute (MEI) publishes a short work of economic history looking at the national myth surrounding Hydro-Québec in this province.

While more and more people are calling for the electrification of transportation and an energy transition, the mining projects upon which this transition depends are suffering from political instability that keeps putting them in peril.
The anti-energy left has weaponized consumer protection laws in the United States to punish oil and gas companies simply for carrying out their core business.
