Canada Action has had an incredibly successful year in 2020, reaching more Canadians across the country than ever before with our balanced, fact-based and non-partisan discussions regarding the natural resource sector.
Here’s a list of Canada Action’s top 10 blogs in 2020 that have helped us accomplish our best outreach yet. We hope you enjoy, and would appreciate if you share online or with family and friends!
May – Canada has the third largest proven oil reserves in the world and imports roughly $20 billion worth of oil each year. According to the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI), if we replaced foreign oil with our own, it would be beneficial for both the Canadian economy and the global environment.
May - Three independent life-cycle assessments conducted by researchers at Standford, the University of British Columbia and University of Calgary found that Canadian LNG will reduce GHG emissions by displacing coal power generation in China.
July – According to an extensive report by BMO Capital Markets, Canada is producing some of the most environmentally sustainable and ethical oil barrels in the world. As a leader in environmental, social and governance (ESG) investor metrics, Canada has an incredible opportunity to attract future oil and gas investment as it continues to be a world-class producer.

October - Is Canadian oil as “dirty” as some anti-Canadian oil and gas activists would have you believe? Is the petroleum industry trying to take advantage of Canadians and turn a blind-eye to the environment at every opportunity it gets? The hundreds of thousands of Canadian families who depend on the sector for a paycheque would not agree. Learn about some of the outrageous claims made by opponents as of late and why they just simply aren’t true.
November - Estella Petersen is an Indigenous woman who works in the Canadian natural resource sector. Listen to what she has to say about her experience in the industry and why we all should put our faith in the resource sector to lead us towards an economic recovery from the 2020 pandemic.
