Justin Trudeau wants to make Canada a global environmental brand

WATCH: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks about the new Smart Prosperity initiative launched in Vancouver, Tuesday, March 1.


A new group that includes business leaders, academics and government officials says it’s time to make Canada a global environment brand.

The members of Smart Prosperity want to accelerate the transition to a high-efficiency, low-carbon economy.

The group launches in Vancouver today, with a boost from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Liberal government’s climate policies appear to dovetail with the group’s vision of an economic transformation.
