Had things worked out differently, the Liberal government’s post-election agenda might have started to take shape this spring with a budget focused on addressing climate change. That might seem like a missed opportunity now. But responding to an economic crisis brought on by a global pandemic is presenting the government with new opportunities to combat climate change — and the Liberals might be judged by how well they seize this moment. Had there been a budget this spring, it likely would have included some mention of at least two initiatives that are now part of the government’s pandemic response: orphan well cleanup and climate-related financial disclosure.
