Karl Nerenberg on fossil fuel investments by the Canada Pension Plan

Responding to a question from the audience, Karl Nerenberg explains how the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) works in terms of its investments, and how Parliament could act to influence civil servants who control the CPP to no longer invest in fossil fuels.

Karl Nerenberg is an award-winning journalist, broadcaster and filmmaker, working in both English and French languages. He is rabble’s parliamentary correspondent and a regular panelist on Off the Hill.
