"Every major issue in the geography of Canada is strictly related to the base economy whereas the economy decides the fate of Canada in the future"
Economic growth is what Canada is going through right now. That is also what holds Canada together too as economy controls major events to the international level including population growth, large urban projects, extraction and transportation of different resources, city expansion, and movement of people. This is all due to the high demand of money in the world especially in the middle class.
The big problem is economic growth involves the long and large process of the downfall of the economy to grow the basic economic infrastructure of Canada. Canada is experiencing multiple medium risk problems but will gradually become a threat to Canada as years go by. Below I will explain explicitly what the problems are in Canada and how it can be solved.
Buying electric cars are considerably expensive and does not have as much interior and exterior benefits than gasoline-run cars but has has long-lasting benefits to the environment. Canada produces multiple hybrid and electric car brands like Chrysler Canada, Ford Motor Company of Canada, General Motors Canada. Cars originally created in Canada are manufactured for a cheaper price giving an economic opportunity to buy cars with a Canadian Label.
To create an economic opportunity, my solution is to grant $10, 000 distributed over 3 years on the buyer if they buy a select hybrid and electric vehicles from Canadian branded cars. For example the Ford Focus Electric, Cadillac ELR, Toyota Prius Plug-In, and more. The prices of these cars are around 40,000 except for the Cadillac ELR which is relatively a good price for a hybrid-electric car. To get the word out, there will also be a advertising campaign on radio stations explaining how the $10,000 would be given.
The process will take over 10 years and will cost 6 million with the distribution of cash per buyer and advertisement. This will further encourage the use of hybrid-electric cars and may reduce carbon emissions in Canada by 10% if 200,000 hybrid-electric cars are bought.
This method involves the process of using the current of the ocean (it is always moving) to turn turbines. The motion of the turbines will generate electricity. This was already a method to find energy but isn’t popular as hydroelectric dams are more efficient as they use less expensive material to build and produces a constant rate of energy. Adding more tidal generators either near the Atlantic Shore and Pacific Shore will generate energy without creating much problems and risks. Over in British Columbia, the shore is a suitable area to build these as there are only a few land development projects nearby. This will be a $10 million plan and will be made over many years up to 15 years as it can cover over several kilometres near the shore.
