You can’t get blood from a stone, or so the saying goes. So where goes the polluter pays principle in Alberta, both today and into the future?

The polluter pays principle can be implemented through a host of regulatory mechanisms with varying efficiency and effect. Join the ELC’s Jason Unger for a lunch time webinar that will provide a review of Alberta’s approach to the polluter pays principle and how it is applied. This webinar will provide a review and highlight two recent ELC reports:
