United States LNG, Petroleum Product Exports Set New Records in 18/19

The United States, which just happens to be Canada’s number one competitor for oil and gas markets, has reached a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export record of 4.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in May of 2019.

The country became the world’s 3rd top LNG exporter this year, averaging 4.2 Bcf/d of exports between January and May. It remains behind only Australia and Qatar, as both of those countries also continue to increase their own LNG exports to fulfill rising global demand.

Between 2016 - 2021, the U.S. is expected to double its LNG export capacity to more than 10 Bcf/d. Considering that 2016 was the year it began exporting, it’s quite a feat to accomplish.

So where is all the additional export capacity coming from?

A Message from Canada: We Are Tired of Being Pushed Around [Video]

We Canadians have a tendency to be very polite. Other than our famous “eh” saying which we tag onto the end of many sentences each day, we’re also known for being very apologetic and will say “sorry” for just about anything.

It’s not such a bad reputation to have, really. Being well-mannered and polite will get you further in life than if you weren't. But when it comes to important issues like supporting the industries that are responsible for our national prosperity, this is a reputation we need to change.

For too long have we let small but vocal special interest groups dictate the conversation about our world-class natural resource industry. We’ve left these groups unchecked, letting them say whatever they want and whenever they want to, even if it was a complete falsehood.

It’s now time for Canadians to take a stand and stop saying sorry for being one of the most transparent, regulated, and environmentally-progressive producers and exporters of a variety of natural resources.

Please watch our video and share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other social media platform you’re on! Thank you!

Mining Sector in Canada: 15+ Mind-Blowing Facts

Canada's mining sector is an incredibly important part of our national wealth and prosperity.

Accounting for more than 426,000 direct jobs in mineral extraction, smelting, fabrication and manufacturing, the industry contributed nearly $100 billion to Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017.

Indirect activity spurred by the mining sector also supports about 206,000 jobs nationwide. In short, the employment contribution of this very important industry is no small potatoes.

Mined materials and produced goods also account for a massive amount of our total value of exports each and every year (more on this below).

Agriculture Sector in Canada: By the Numbers

Canada’s agriculture sector is a major part of the lives of many Canadians and their communities across the country. Not only does the sector feed us, but it adds massive value to the economy through billions of dollars worth of sales, exports and employment each year.

You’ll find many kinds of agricultural goods across Canada’s vast expanse. For example, highbush blueberries from British Columbia aren’t uncommon in grocery stores in Toronto. At the same time, you always see apples from Ontario on the shelves in Alberta. You’ll also find these products around the world as a result of trade with other nations.

When you take a look at the numbers, the importance of the agricultural industry becomes clear. For example, $110 billion is contributed by the sector to Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP) annually. That’s more than the entire national GDP of over 2/3rd’s of the world’s countries!

Here’s several other statistical facts on Canada’s agriculture sector that should give you an even better idea of just how important this industry is to our country.

How Important is Oil to the Canadian Economy?

Whether you like it or not, oil is an extremely important part of the Canadian economy. In many ways, revenues generated by the oil and gas industry “pay the rent” in the country.

Who Supports the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion in Canada?

Good question! With all the media coverage of anti-pipeline protestors and anti-pipeline narratives over the past several years, you would think no one in Canada supports the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion (TMX).

This is a major misconception many have about the project. A recent poll by Angus Reid shows a majority of Canadians in every province except one support the Trans Mountain Pipeline's second approval.

To add, more British Columbians support the TMX than not, with the most recent Ipsos poll showing that support at 60 per cent, double the 29 per cent who somewhat or firmly oppose the project.

Besides polling, there are several mayors, premiers and organizations across Canada that have thrown their full support behind the TMX. Here they are:
