Twitter is an excellent platform to broadcast whatever message you choose. In our case, we use our Twitter accounts @OilSandsAction and @CanadaAction to spread a balanced and informed conversation about Canada's natural resource sectors, bad government policy and other factors that play an instrumental role in our nation's overall economic well-being.
If you don't happen to have a Twitter account and don't want one, that's okay. We post all of our retweets on these blogs for you to check out at any time. We also have a lot more tweets that we don't post because, well, we tweet a lot. If you do want to see more of our regular tweets though, be sure to check us out on Twitter (link above).
If you do have Twitter, however, we recommend you follow these accounts (if you haven't already). They will also keep you up-to-date on developing stories related to the message that our group is bringing the discussion on Canadian pipelines, Canadian energy and Canadian prosperity.
Here's all of Canada Action's Twitter retweets for the month of February 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.

This piece by Philip Cross is as true as when it came out 3 years ago: the Ecofiscal Commission “provides a convenient intellectual cover for government to engage in a tax grab that does nothing to address the long-run trend of rising fuel consumption.”https://t.co/y25BAbaRDY— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) February 27, 2019
Must end the madness.— * W. Brett Wilson * (@WBrettWilson) February 26, 2019
Confederation is about working together. Special interest groups are effectively destroying the life blood of our nation and its ability to compete globally.
That is wrong to me.
RT to support thoughtful economic AND environmental policy in Canada. https://t.co/Odbk0MxWP2
Great to be in Ottawa speaking for energy and mining workers on our concerns about Bill C-69. This bill would make it impossible to build new/replace existing pipelines and delay major resource projects in ON! pic.twitter.com/VkWm4S4Zrs— Greg Rickford (@GregRickford) February 27, 2019
Canada's energy sector is running out of options.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) February 26, 2019
Northern Gateway: dead and buried
TMX: dying slowly by strangulation.
Previous proponent of #EnergyEast walked away, but with the right leadership & policies in place, we CAN & SHOULD build this nation-uniting 🇨🇦 energy corridor pic.twitter.com/RCLVcqxlwi
So who wins and who loses if the #TMX doesn’t go through?— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) February 24, 2019
Losers: Canadians, the environment, salmon, the SRKWs (orcas), Canada’s fight against climate change
Winners: Activist NGOs, American refinery owners, and foreign dictatorshipshttps://t.co/jTlFhZvV6l#bcpoli 8/
Another international investor pulls out of 🇨🇦— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) February 25, 2019
You would think our nation with 3rd largest proven oil reserves on earth, produced more sustainably than much of world, would want to lead in replacing energy from more precarious sources, but now we’re wasting away that opportunity https://t.co/tOK22GCoz1
Not fast enough Minister @SohiAmarjeet. Where's the sense of urgency? Canadians have waited long enough. Work harder & cut this timeline in half. ⌚👈— 🇨🇦 Rally 4 Resources 🇨🇦 (@rally4resources) February 25, 2019

Canada is missing an opportunity in the energy sector equivalent to creating an entirely new auto sector in our nation.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) February 24, 2019
Imagine what that kind of economic activity could provide by way of jobs, prosperity, and increased funding to infrastructure and services we all depend on. https://t.co/46UizMWr8A
When activists say it is about protecting the Southern Resident Killer Whales, remember the #NEB was not allowed to consider how the #TMX reduces threats to the SRKWs from the American side of the border https://t.co/TWyZwkDSgL #bcpoli #transmountain 2/— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) February 24, 2019
A thread about common myths about the #transmountain:— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) February 24, 2019
heavy crude is a fungible commodity and blocking #TMX will do nothing to affect oil demand all it will do is move demand to suppliers with lower environmental standards and higher per barrel GHG emissions #bcpoli #cdnpoli 1/
Just a reminder the research indicates that the #TransMountain shipping route is not a major threat to the Southern Resident Killer Whales from ship strikes. Rather the ferry routes and northern straits are where they are actually at danger #bcpoli #orcas https://t.co/Ufvhqfydyx— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) February 23, 2019
I hope the government of Canada won’t drag out the process unnecessarily, and will green-light the project soon. We need, absolutely, to protect west coast marine ecosystems, with good safeguards. But of all recently proposed pipeline routes, TMX is the most logical. https://t.co/2v8AYJpeSG— Paula Simons (@Paulatics) February 22, 2019
At last #Canada is showing the courage to defend its existing, thoughtful, relevant, detailed regulatory review process.— * W. Brett Wilson * (@WBrettWilson) February 22, 2019
Dialogue is done - review is complete - considered conclusion is announced.
RT to say #CongratsCanada & thank Canada's #EnergySector for it's patience. https://t.co/T0849RxdBC

A CBC/Radio-Canada analysis of 9.6 million tweets from accounts since deleted shows that pipeline and immigration debates in Canada were inflamed by trolls thought to be based in Russia, Iran and Venezuela. https://t.co/u4ElRLoiqX— CBC News Alerts (@CBCAlerts) February 12, 2019

For far too long, people across Saskatchewan, and much of our nation who work in the energy, mining, agriculture sectors have felt like they have been taken for granted.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) February 17, 2019

US sends $$$ into Canada to stop oil and gas, then the US buys our oil and gas at discount and our govts assist them in bashing Canadian resources. Is this really the way Canada is run? https://t.co/LSJk1g1fzl— Ellis Ross (@ellisbross) February 8, 2019
