Play Video

When it comes to discourse about environmental policies, climate change and Canada’s oil and gas sector, it’s important to know the facts and understand the implications of different policy ideas.

One policy, often put forward by environmental protestors, is for governments to “keep oil in the ground.”

This lesson examines how students and everyday Canadians would be affected if governments acted on the protestors’ recommendation.
