Supporting Canada's natural resource industries (oil and gas, mining, forestry, etc.) is extremely important not only for our current economic prosperity, but for that of our future as well!
Twitter is one place where Canadians can share their thoughts, feelings and emotions with others on current world events. It's also a great platform to share the facts just for general knowledge AND to counteract the mis-information that has been spread about Canadian industries like the energy sector, for example.
Here's Canada Action's retweets for all of October 2018. We recommend you check them out and give these people a follow on Twitter. The more we can all spread the message on social media, the more informed Canadians will be about just how important natural resources are to our economy!
Just watched two talented guys quit. Got jobs in US Energy. All while many still getting laid off here in YYC. Don’t blame them, flight of Human Capital is one of the intangibles Canada has incentivized. Not the first, or the last I’ve seen of this.— PATCHcapital (@TSXcapital) October 30, 2018
Imagine being a "#Greenpeace Canada #Climate and #Energy Campaigner" and still not knowing the difference between "energy" and "electricity".— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) October 30, 2018
Honestly, the world is in crisis, we need activists who understand science @JustinTrudeau #ActOnClimate #cdnpoli #bcpoli #NoTMX #go100re https://t.co/4NbheRu0Cn
An interesting analysis that explains why Canada has such high per capita GHG emissions.— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) October 29, 2018
Because we export so many natural resources and so much food to the rest of the world https://t.co/a4C7faykKB @BOEReport #bcpoli #abpoli @sjmuir @keithbaldrey @Climate_Pete #climatechange
This map shows global oil tanker traffic right now, the red markers are actual tanker locations, and the pink lines represent 2017 trips. Something to think about next time you hear the b.s. talking points about "seven times the risk" blah blah blah. #BuildKM pic.twitter.com/579AcSLqyL— Stewart Muir (@sjmuir) May 30, 2018
Canadian resource & exploration leaders call on the Senate to put Bill C-69 on hold: to get the project review process right.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) October 26, 2018
They caution that Bill C-69’s current form will injure Canada & Canadian workers. Let’s send it back and get it right.
I love how the tweet implies that some other process would not prompt more court challenges. The opponents view the courts as their primary means of fighting the project because they don't have the science or public opinion on their side. #cdnpoli #bcpoli #TransMountain #NEB https://t.co/QJUKvCbWP6— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) October 23, 2018

A great read here from @BradWall306 on the risk Bill C-69 poses to our Canadian industry and prosperity.
Stat of the day: TMX is being partially held up by the worry that 1 incremental oil tanker a day will impact 74 Southern resident killer whales. At current differentials EACH whale is costing ~$629,000,000 PER YEAR in lost economic value to our economy and $187,000,000 in taxes.

This historic investment by @LNGCanada will provide extraordinary opportunities for students in the North coming out of high school.— John Horgan (@jjhorgan) October 16, 2018
From Kitimat, to Burns Lake, to Fort St. John, young people will have a full range of options to learn and work right in their hometown. #bcpoli pic.twitter.com/etfqYwsGny
New Children’s Hospital in Sask...about 8 days. We sell our oil to the US at a half price discount in part because we cannot get a pipeline built. That’s billions in gov’t revenue and sector income that could otherwise put people to work that is lost...every single year. https://t.co/5TinWfcY1P— Brad Wall (@BradWall306) October 14, 2018
We are asleep. Where is the outrage over foreign funding on issues of national importance. https://t.co/JOtYaaIb0J— John F Prato (@JohnFPrato) October 14, 2018
Washington state succeeded in helping shut down canadian tankers while protecting american tankers. USA continues to buy canadian oil at extreme discounts; we’ve already given up billions to USA! what more could Washington state want from BC?— Ellis Ross (@ellisbross) October 11, 2018
Without new pipelines to handle capacity, we can expect to see $40+ discounts on Canadian oil.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) October 9, 2018
Canadians deserve better. We need to get these pipelines built.

Once again the @CCPA_BC and @MarcLeeCCPA present bad science that he represents as a policy discussion. The relative carbon intensities of LNG and coal are not up for debate. The science is clear, only by ignoring the science can they make their arguments. #lng #bclng #LNGCanada https://t.co/ZSTGTr6Ld2— Blair King (@BlairKing_ca) October 5, 2018
Today’s $40 billion announcement by LNG Canada is the single largest private sector investment in Canadian history. This project will create 10,000 jobs at the height of construction and will lead to billions of dollars in revenues for our economy. #cdnpoli— Amarjeet Sohi (@SohiAmarjeet) October 2, 2018
No Pipelines? No Problem..for U.S. East Coast refiners as they cash in by the trainload on discounted Canadian oil https://t.co/SYV4QrzzSP— Calvin Helin (@CalvinHelin) October 2, 2018
LNG Canada gets go ahead from investors today. Will help support 1,000’s of families with good paying jobs and create a ripple effect across the Canadian economy. Much needed good news for the oil and gas sector.— Rona Ambrose (@RonaAmbrose) October 2, 2018
