Canada's natural resource industries are an extremely important part of our national economy. Constituting 17% of the total national gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017 and employing more than 2 million people nationwide, they are a major source of wealth and prosperity for all of Canada.
It's important that we as Canadians show our support for our natural resource industries as much as we can. One way to do that is to get out on social media and spread informative articles that dispel lots of misinformation that's currently out there!
With that in mind, we invite you to check us out and join the movement on Twitter! Every voice counts in the battle for Canada's economic future and prosperity!
Below are all the retweets by Canada Action throughout December 2018. If you're unfamiliar with the current state of affairs when it comes to pipelines, oil and gas and other natural resource industries in Canada, these will get you caught up very quickly.

There’s no denying the needless damage to Canada caused by this decade-long propaganda effort. What’s surprising is we are still putting up with it. My thoughts here. https://t.co/ezcVfc5enT— Stewart Muir (@sjmuir) December 29, 2018

More oil and gas rallies are planned for Lloydminster and Rocky Mountain House on Saturday. As @SaroltaCityNews Saskiw reports, these groups are echoing the same message as many of the rallies across #Alberta to “build the pipelines now”. #yeg #yyc pic.twitter.com/8PnOHJQh53— CityNews Edmonton (@CityNewsYEG) December 29, 2018
Steepest drop since 1975. 70 rigs active vs 727 rigs active this time 12 years ago. Made-in-Canada energy crisis continues. https://t.co/Pl2xbr7Aln— Martin Pelletier (@MPelletierCIO) December 29, 2018
I’m proud to join my colleagues at the @cityofcalgary to support our energy sector. Alberta oil is best oil in the world! Please SHARE and help take action for Canada’s future! #yycproud #ableg #YYC #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/pwC3mA0DQs— Ward Sutherland (@Ward4Ward1) December 12, 2018
Proud to support all the hard working men and women in the oil and gas sector. Thanks for fighting through the negativity and suppling Canadians with our needed energy and celebrating all the jobs that come with it.

A simple question for @singingwithin and @WCELaw— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) December 19, 2018
Why are you not suggesting Climate Accountability letters to every car maker out there.
They have a more direct responsibility for our burning fossil fuels and have aggressively advertised its use for decades? #bcpoli #abpoli
Tks to @CanadaAction, it was encouraging to see Calgarians coming together, across all socio-economic and partisan lines, to support the energy industry, pipelines, and a prosperous future for all Canadians! #BuildThatPipe #BuildOurFuture! pic.twitter.com/5s80ieRp6H— Richard Gotfried 高 飛 🇨🇦 (@GotfriedMLA) December 17, 2018
Thanks to everyone who joined me and my @cityofcalgary colleagues Monday to support Alberta energy.

#Whistler is tip of the iceberg. Serial legal shakedowns in the name of saving the planet.

Open letter to Canadians: "How could it possibly be more environmentally positive to drill oil in the Middle East, pipeline it to their ports, tanker it 10,000+kms across the ocean & then deliver it to Canada?

Start your week with this excellent article.
These rallies really are important.

Don’t forget to show your support for Canada’s energy sector on Monday, December 17 (tomorrow) at noon at City Hall. #yyccc & @OilsandsAction will be hosting, sending a clear message that supporting our responsible energy producers is in our national best interest. #YYCProud— Jyoti Gondek (@JyotiGondek) December 17, 2018
The reason why most people labor under a misapprehension about the state of the world’s forests is that news stories often ignore reforestation. In about half the world, there is net reforestation—not despite economic development, but because of it. https://t.co/3RphSJliVF— HumanProgress.org (@HumanProgress) December 16, 2018
#yyccc members are making statements of support for Canada's energy sector. Mine is based on a masters thesis that examined corporate social responsibility, as well as a spouse who has spent 21 years in the sector.

As I've said before, every Albertan contributes an average of $5,147 to our country. That's 5 times more than the next biggest contributors in ON.— Rachel Notley (@RachelNotley) December 12, 2018

Our commitment to a national vision has eroded over the past few decades.

Week after week @GreenpeaceCA through employees like @MikeHudema demonstrates it is not a serious group when it comes to energy discussions.

With respect, @JustinTrudeau, we don’t need to build a culture of dependency with enhanced Employment Insurance and Income Supports.

Quebec has obvious social license for oil refineries, and clear social license for foreign oil tanker ships (red markers) to feed the refineries. But their premier pleads absence of social license when it comes to using Canadian oil that benefits all Canadians. Ya sure. pic.twitter.com/9aNLLaTUnK— Stewart Muir (@sjmuir) December 7, 2018
Native poverty is a multibillion dollar industry and those that work to keep us in poverty should be exposed for what they are; self serving manipulaters that use natives for their own agendas— Ellis Ross (@ellisbross) December 6, 2018
