Canada's railways: Part of the
climate change solution
Le rail canadien : un élément
de la solution aux changements
climatiques au Canada

The federal government recently announced
that it was introducing a price on carbon, which
will either be imposed directly by the federal
government or by provinces. This policy will have
a significant impact on trade-exposed industries:
manufacturers and producers of all kinds that
sell into global markets against competitors
from countries where there is no carbon tax.
An adjustment to a lower carbon world
will be difficult, with impacts on every part of
the economy. Canada is a trading nation that
produces a lot of energy and commodities
and, in doing so, produces greenhouse
gases. Very few industries can grow while,
at the same time, reducing emissions.

Le gouvernement fédéral a récemment
annoncé qu'il imposera un prix sur le
carbone. Cette politique aura une incidence
sensible sur de nombreuses industries
exportatrices qui font face à la concurrence
de pays exempts de ce type de taxe.
L'adaptation à un monde faible en carbone
sera difficile. Le Canada est un pays exportateur
qui produit beaucoup d'énergie et de matières
premières, et qui génère ainsi des gaz à effet
de serre. Très peu d'industries peuvent se
développer tout en réduisant leurs émissions.
Il importe de rappeler que des chaînes
d'approvisionnement concurrentielles et
des réseaux de transport en bon état sont
