Canada Action will hold ‘the Largest Oil and Gas Rally in Canadian History’ on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 in Calgary, AB.
In partnership with the Global Petroleum Show, the rally will be held a week before the federal Cabinet is expected to rule on the Trans Mountain Expansion project, and will feature appearances from top industry leaders, politicians and advocates from across the country.
“The Trans Mountain Expansion, while an incredibly important project in its own right, has become a symbol of the oil and gas industry and the challenges facing energy projects all over the country,” said Cody Battershill, Founder of Canada Action. “Hosting the Largest Oil and Gas Rally in Canada’s History could not be more timely as we look to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of Canada’s petroleum industry and to demonstrate to Ottawa that more Canadian energy is exactly what the world needs.”
The rally is being held during the 51st Global Petroleum Show at the Calgary Stampede Grounds beside the Big Four building. Event organizers are prepared to host upwards of 5,000 people in attendance at the rally alone.
“For 50 years, the Global Petroleum Show has acted as a beacon for industry. It has been a rallying point for oil and gas families, advocacy groups, corporations, innovators and the public in celebration of a healthy, responsible and sustainable petroleum industry in Canada and around the world,” said Nick Samain, Vice President, dmg events and the Global Petroleum Show. “We are thrilled to partner with Canada Action in providing our outdoor event space on June 11th for this rally. We are well accustomed to hosting 50,000 visitors at the Global Petroleum Show every year. If we need to accommodate 100,000 people – we will handle it.”
