If there’s one thing we can all agree on about oil and gas, it’s that there’s big money in it. Governments invest big money, corporations make big money—and they stand to lose big money as solar and wind rise rapidly. And they spend big money to control the narrative about Canada’s energy and economic future.
Mission Transition breaks down where your tax dollars are being invested, who owns energy, who profits, and who’s at risk of being left out in the cold.
We speak with Bill Carroll, the co-director of the Corporate Mapping Project, about the influence of oil and gas money on the transition.
