New York Times Reporter Coral Davenport sparked international interest this week with an article in anticipation of Barack Obama’s expected environmental protection announcement on Monday.

In her article, Davenport says Obama is expected to announce an Environmental Protection Agency regulation designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants.

The move could have implications around the globe – especially in Canada.

“I think that there is a lot of unhappiness within the Obama administration about Canada’s lack of a climate policy,” said Davenport in an interview with Tom Clark on The West Block.

The interview examined what Obama’s move could mean for Canada’s energy sector, including wider implications on the Keystone XL decision.
