LISTEN: U.S. climate change policy shift puts pressure on Canadian government

[ http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the- ... -1.4029182 ]

March 17, 2017

On March 15, U.S. president Donald Trump proposed a budget that would slash the Environmental Protection Agency's funding by about a third.

Donald Trump did not campaign as a champion of the environment, but as his presidency approaches the two-month mark, some environmentalists' worst fears appear to be coming true.

And as the new administration rolls back environmental regulations, there are voices in Canada asking whether the Trudeau government should follow suit in order to stay competitive.

To what degree will the Liberal government's climate-friendly posturing be influenced by policy shifts in the U.S.?

The Current asks the experts:

◾Alexander Kaufman, environment reporter for Huffington Post
◾Michelle Rempel, MP for Calgary
◾ Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org
