You might've seen it yesterday: our government announced a $385,000 grant to study a specific type of green tech in homes. It was at SAIT, and the institution is partnering with ATCO Gas and Brookfield.

Micro-CHP technology may help to make our communities more energy efficient and make net-zero energy a more realistic option for families in Calgary, and all of Western Canada. The type of technology is one of the tools we can equip our society to be more energy efficient, save money, and be more energy independent.

The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology received a $385,500 grant Wednesday to evaluate if micro-CHP technology can save Albertans money on heating and powering their homes.

SAIT, with its industry partners, is helping to bring clean technologies to market.

These technologies will promote sustainable development and address the issues of climate change. Micro-CHP technology may help to make our communities more energy efficient and make net-zero energy a more realistic option for families in Calgary, and all of Western Canada.

Le SAIT, en collaboration avec ses partenaires de l’industrie, contribue à la mise en marché de technologies propres.

Ces technologies favoriseront le développement durable et apporteront des solutions aux problèmes liés au changement climatique. La technologie de m-PCCE pourrait accroître l’efficacité énergétique de nos collectivités et offrir aux familles de Calgary et de l’ensemble de l’Ouest canadien une solution plus réaliste en matière de consommation énergétique nette zéro.

The progressive agreement reached in Tokyo today is the right deal.

The CPTPP will boost Canada's GDP by $4.2 billion, largely due to the fact that Canadian companies will not have to compete with US firms in CPTPP markets; most importantly Japan.

Our government stood up for Canadian interests: and this agreement meets our objectives of creating and sustaining growth, prosperity and well-paying middle-class jobs today and for generations to come.

...

For example, the environment chapter is the most ambitious and comprehensive we have ever signed. By suspending provisions on intellectual property (IP) from the original text, we have ensured the industries of tomorrow are secure and can grow right here at home. And the CPTPP will be the largest trading bloc in the world - with11 countries, CPTPP countries representing 495 million people, with a combined GDP of $13.5 trillion, or 13.5% of global GDP.

Before going to the #WomensMarchYYC today I went doorknocking with my mother, Judy.

For those interested in politics and political change: the way forward to making an impact is on the doors. It is one of the best places to have the conversations that can build a better future and take a voice to Ottawa -- conversations like equality, like advocacy for issues important to women and making a better world for all.

And having your mother help is one of the benefits. Truly thankf...ul to all of those women who have been involved in the political process, like my mother, and all those who are coming forward in the days ahead.

We took a moment to contemplate the work they did, and the ongoing work of the many, many advocates throughout Calgary and the world.
