John Stackhouse, Senior Vice President in the Office of the CEO at RBC joined the podcast in mid-August 2023 on Zoom, to talk about the state of climate policy just after the Government of Canada released draft Clean Electricity Regulations for comment. Francis and John discuss where banking and climate actions intersect, the evolution of Canadian climate policy, Canadian response the US Inflation Reduction Act, supply chain challenges, attracting the highly skilled labour needed for the transition, and Canadian competitiveness. They also discuss the need for regulatory flexibility, and the imperative of advancing Indigenous inclusion in the energy transition.
