AMTA’s Training and Tech Campus Will Drive Alberta Forward

The precarity of our supply chains was one of the unsettling realities revealed by the pandemic. All it took was a strain on a single link to cause shortages throughout the system.

Should Canada Emulate the UK’s Net-Zero Pathway?

I am picking up some chatter within certain circles in Alberta and Canada that the UK’s net-zero framework is a plan to emulate.

There were several key “takeaways” from the tour but the top three included: an aggressive net-zero timeline that “everybody appears to be on board with”; the UK has a new type of increased decarbonized industrial production guided and driven by government industrial planning; and a serious concern with energy security.

A Rocky Road with Too Many Potholes

A Rocky Road to Too Many Potholes

The poor state of Canadian infrastructure should be a cause of concern to all levels of government.
