At least three Canadian premiers will together take the stage at GLOBE 2016 in a candid discussion of climate action and the opportunities of the low-carbon economy.

Hon. Greg Selinger, Premier of Manitoba, Hon. Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario and Hon. Philippe Couillard, Premier of Quebec will participate in a candid Premiers' Armchair Dialogue at the Globe Leadership Summit, 5:30 pm on Thursday, March 3. 

The session will immediately follow a First Ministers Meeting of provincial premiers, also in Vancouver, focused on climate change.

“Provincial governments are tackling climate on multiple fronts—via a variety of innovative policies and market signals” said Mike Gerbis, CEO of GLOBE Series. “For this special session, premiers will come straight out of their meeting with the Prime Minister to share insights on how they’re bending the curve on carbon while creating jobs and spurring low-carbon development.” 

The GLOBE 2016 Leadership Summit and Innovation Exposition will run at the Vancouver Convention Centre from March 2 to 4, 2016.
