How should we think about Canada’s relationship to its natural resources and how should we think about Canada’s environment? This panel explores Canada’s current patterns of production and consumption, and asks how current policy decisions might affect Canada’s relationship to resources in the future. In particular, this panel examines current trends of consumption of Canada’s natural resources such as wind energy, forestry, mining, fishing, agriculture, and oil use. This panel also seeks to examine what the future might look like in terms of Canada’s consumption of natural resources, which resources might be preferred in the future, and what this might mean for Canada’s environment, and its citizens.
