Common Sense Canadian

About The Common Sense Canadian

The Common Sense Canadian is a forum for critical discussion of the key issues shaping our world today: water, energy, food security, and how we manage our resources to the public benefit while preserving of our environment.

Too often, these issues are reduced to a polarized debate along the lines of jobs vs. the environment. At The Common Sense Canadian we believe we need to pursue a future which is sustainable both economically and ecologically.

This much-needed discussion is led by our team of expert contributors, facilitated through our website,, video, social media, a weekly email bulletin and dynamic public events.

If you’re a Common Sense Canadian, we hope you’ll support what we do, share our site with your friends, family and colleagues – and join this growing conversation about the future of our society and planet.
