“...Global oil demand is set to grow by around 1.5 million bpd this year.”— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 11, 2019
Who really wins when Canadian pipelines don’t get built? https://t.co/Fax8AIb5RL
All of Canada should have access to Canadian oil.— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 11, 2019
Why are we importing oil from countries with inferior environmental standards and why do “green” groups ignore foreign oil tankers? #StopBillC48 pic.twitter.com/HRNQESUkTJ

A majority of Canadians agree we have a pipeline crisis.— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 8, 2019
We need urgent action to restart #NorthernGateway and #EnergyEast.
We need to use all available tools for #TransMountain and we must focus on becoming an attractive destination for investment. #CdnPoli #StopBillC69 pic.twitter.com/I9cVxGFckV
No, renewables are not taking over the world.— Bjorn Lomborg (@BjornLomborg) March 30, 2019
It would be nice if renewables were cheaper and better than fossil fuels. It could cut our soaring electricity bills, power the third world, fix climate.
Unfortunately, this is mostly an illusion. https://t.co/lexWTfftPD pic.twitter.com/Q77nsdXfsu
Why no tanker bans for Quebec?https://t.co/8AwRhkkbRM— Calvin Helin (@CalvinHelin) March 23, 2019
A couple hundred people gathered for @CanadaAction rally calling on the federal government to build the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion and put a stop to #BillC69 @CTVCalgary #yyc #TMX pic.twitter.com/Mmd0usSf3b— Mark Villani (@CTVMarkVillani) March 22, 2019
OPINION: Every Ontarian has right to fly Canadian flag https://t.co/rRXixjTleX— Toby Barrett (@TobyBarrettHN) March 19, 2019
@cfax1070 news poll: Do you think the BC government should have jurisdiction to regulate the transport of oil through the province?— CFAX1070 (@cfax1070) March 18, 2019
If unamended, #Bill C-69 will drive away investment and kill jobs. It is unacceptable in its present form. Many groups, including @CdnChamberofCom, have proposed improvements to fix these issues. The government needs to listen. https://t.co/ffWK327oxa— Perrin Beatty (@PerrinBeatty) March 18, 2019
Just landed in Montreal. Flying over the St-Lawrence I saw 6 oil tankers. No oil tanker ban here! And these tankers wouldn’t be carrying #Alberta #Oil? Likely from Saudi. Makes sense??!!#cdnpoli #abpoli #SenCA #C48— Senator Doug Black (@DougBlackAB) March 18, 2019
This is a wake up call to Canadians: we’ve been had by foreign funded interests intent on destroying our energy industry. A big thank you to Vivian Krause @FairQuestions for uncovering this plot. https://t.co/g0IKpRKFtw— R C Herman 🇨🇦 (@RCHerman1) March 14, 2019
Today, we presented @GovNL's Bill #C69 submission to the Senate Committee to advocate for a better process that supports economic development, ensures timely & effective assessment, respects the role of organizations like the @CNLOPB & enhances our global competitiveness. #GovNL pic.twitter.com/3eNHYrHHah— Premier of NL (@PremierofNL) February 28, 2019

#Internationalwomensday always makes me so very proud of my teenage daughter.— Rachel Notley (@RachelNotley) March 9, 2019
Since I was in Calgary this morning, I got up early and sent her this note.
Happy #IWD2019 to everyone.

still surprising to kno how much the USA influences what we think about Ourselves. Our oil/gas,forestry, fishfarms sentiments originate from USA $$$(hundreds of millions) that come from USA. Even our own govts side with our neighbors instead of us— Ellis Ross (@ellisbross) March 6, 2019
Interesting that his state’s oil refineries generate so much oil tanker traffic. One of the highest levels in the country. https://t.co/Qi1H7a57XT— Keith Baldrey (@keithbaldrey) March 3, 2019
Senator Simons,— Vivian Krause (@FairQuestions) February 13, 2019
... I would agree that we've been snowed.
Did you see this report by CBC? https://t.co/Rs28Tyuxos After it aired, CorpEthics re-wrote its web-site, removing info on the role of the Rockellers Brothers Fund, and also on its elections influence.

“Of all the people who qualify to be a director here, they pick someone who has opposed absolutely every pipeline, every oil and gas project, even LNG... Honestly, I don’t get it.” @MargMcCuaigBoyd #AbLeg https://t.co/1IMVLep4df— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) April 1, 2019
Despite Alberta's climate efforts, Tzeporah Berman says pipeline to coast not acceptable. #AbLeg— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 31, 2019
(Alberta has been the only top 10 oil exporting jurisdiction with carbon pricing initiatives since 2007.) https://t.co/MALgFZ0gyr
Why no tanker bans for oil coming to Canada from Algeria, Kazakhstan or Saudi Arabia?— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 30, 2019
People like @Tzeporah and @EdWhittingham only block local resources, ignoring Canada’s world leading environmental record. https://t.co/osfLmiEAxK
Northern Gateway had the support of 71% of the First Nations on the route.— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 24, 2019
While we cancel and delay, the USA is full steam ahead. Currently they have 8 new pipelines and 14 oil tanker loading terminals planned or under construction. pic.twitter.com/jzGfuLxMho
What we have done to our energy sector is an embarrassment.— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 23, 2019
We have given away or missed out on close to $500 billion of opportunity and investment.
All to appease the no-everything, non-Canadian anti-pipeline campaign. #CdnPoli #AbLeg pic.twitter.com/sO0hlSZrHw
“...people aren't working, people are frustrated, people are desperate, people are going broke, they're losing their homes and we're racking up debt as a country, as a province. We need to get our resources to new international markets; no more delays," https://t.co/uxz6iBaBIJ— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 23, 2019
B.C. admits in court that it cannot stop the expansion of #TransMountain— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 18, 2019
This project has broad support from First Nations along the route and is vital for Canada’s economic growth. #CdnPoli https://t.co/b90vYwD0Hf

“Wind turbines are the most serious new threat to important bird species to emerge in decades. The rapidly spinning turbines act like an apex predator which big birds never evolved to deal with.” https://t.co/Pi298Oy7Vh— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 12, 2019
“Mr. Whittingham is a good & qualified appointee who believes strongly in the sustainable development of Alberta’s energy industry.” - @RachelNotley— Canada Action (@CanadaAction) March 12, 2019
Bad way to describe an organizer of the #TarSandsCampaign which takes credit for blocking all pipelines.https://t.co/AilCoHvoQo
