Pembina reacts to the 2011 federal election outcome

Ed Whittingham, executive director of the Pembina Institute, made the following statement in response to the results of the 2011 federal election:

"The Pembina Institute congratulates Conservative Leader Stephen Harper for winning his first majority government and Jack Layton in his new role as Leader of the Official Opposition. As a national non-partisan think tank, the Pembina Institute works with all governments and political parties to help move Canada toward a clean energy future that delivers economic prosperity, environmental protection and climate security.

"Mr. Harper's actions on climate change and clean energy to date have been inadequate relative to the need and the opportunity. To become a leader in the fast-growing clean energy economy, Canada must implement much stronger policies than the Conservative government has introduced so far or proposed in its campaign platform.
