A recent opinion article in the Calgary Herald briefly discusses the stark reality of future global energy demand, the benefits of natural resources in Canada and how our country is a world-leading environmental steward.
At the end it mentions the largest oil and gas rally in the history of Canada, which will be held at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, Alberta, on June 11th, 2019.

Huffington Post has reported that Canada has fallen to its lowest ranking ever on the IMD World Competitiveness Rankings.
"The 2019 edition of the IMD World Competitiveness Ranking places Canada 13th out of 63 countries, the worst performance in the annual survey’s history, which goes back to 1997."
"We’ve seen less money coming into Canada, it’s not attracting its fair share of foreign capital,” said Craig Alexander, chief economist at Deloitte Canada and co-author of the consultancy’s Canadian competitiveness scorecard."

Cody Battershill, Founder and CEO of Canada Action, discusses how false narratives are hurting both Canadians and the environment on EnergyNow Media.
" ...while so many activists claim to care about Indigenous rights, reduction of CO2 emissions or landscape reclamation, industry supporters involved in the research, development and implementation of technology and innovation seem to care a lot more."
" ...that the Canadian oil and gas sector spends more than any other industry in the country on environmental protection, or that the energy industry collaborates widely to promote environmental stewardship... "
" ...environmental groups push for a prohibition on oil sands activities and fight against pipelines that would allow our country to compete in the world, and instead force Canadians to use 700,000 barrels per day of imported product from countries with often an inferior record of environmental and human rights protections."

CTV News had excellent coverage of the Senate Committee hearing on Bill C-48 just last week. We were outside the hearing, letting the Senators know just exactly what we think of this legislation which, according to industry and business leaders across the country, will devastate Canada's energy sector.
"A senate committee is in Edmonton to hear from Albertans on a contentious bill that could have a significant impact on the energy industry."
"Bill C-48 would ban large oil tankers from ports along B.C.'s northern coast..."

Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps took a tour of steam-assisted gravity drainage facilities at Cenovus's Foster Creek operation near Cold Lake on Friday, April 26th, 2019.
It seems that the tour helped Helps gain a broader and more in-depth perspective on the oil sands, and how dedicated the industry is to protecting the environment and reducing its overall carbon footprint.
“I wasn’t going to have my mind changed or not, but I was going to certainly learn more about the industry and broaden my perspective,” says Helps.
“I think I saw the future of the oilsands. What I saw yesterday was a lot of innovation and I think if that continues that’s a good thing.
“They are making tremendous steps to make the industry more sustainable (like) using less fossil fuels to extract fossil fuels.”

Canada Action is helping to organize a rally in Vancouver on March 10th to support construction of the the Trans Mountain pipeline, and LNG projects. Join us.
When: 2 pm, Saturday, March 10, 2018
Where: Canada Place, 999 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC
The existing pipeline has operated since 1953, without catastrophe.
If we can’t build new pipelines, BC and all of Canada stand to lose billions of dollars in government revenue that pays for police, firefighters, roads, hospitals, teachers doctors and nurses, plus Indigenous communities will be denied the right to lift themselves out of poverty. 51 First Nations support this project.
And in addition, hundreds of thousands of jobs related to the oil and gas industry could vanish – jobs that put food on the tables of BC families and across the country.
Show your support for fair trade Canadian oil and gas produced to the best environmental standards on earth and representing the largest single contributor to Canada's economy. Bring a sign and your voice – we’ll provide the coffee and donuts – all we need is YOU!
Please remember the is a positive, respectful, non-partisan event.
Together we can make a difference. Join us!
OTTAWA, Ontario, Feb. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Rising government costs, the burden of inefficient regulations, and the lack of infrastructure to move Canadian energy to growing markets are all undermining investor confidence in Canada and negatively affecting the country’s ability to attract the capital needed to create jobs and national prosperity, according to A Global Vision for Canadian Oil and Natural Gas, the first in a series of economic reports to be released by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) in 2018.
Show your support for the Trans Mountain pipeline!

The Trans Mountain Expansion Project will create thousands of jobs, generate billions of dollars for public services like healthcare and education and give Canada direct access to world markets and world prices.
Not only has Trans Mountain received provincial and federal approval, it is also the most thoroughly-reviewed project in Canadian regulatory history.
We’re asking MP Kent Hehr and Prime Minister Trudeau to put the full power of the Federal Government behind the existing approval of this critically important national infrastructure project. Together we can make a difference!
