“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

CANADA’S ENERGY CITIZENS – Canada’s oil and natural gas industry is Shovel-Ready and Shovel-Worthy

Oil and Natural Gas Industry Offers a Pathway to Rapid and Sustainable Recovery 


As governments work toward reopening and rebuilding the economy, Canada’s oil and natural gas industry is positioned to play a critical role in developing solutions and delivering results. Oil and natural gas is one of Canada’s largest employers and most significant economic growth generators, and can drive a robust economic recovery to the benefit of the entire country. Click here to learn more on how Canada's oil and natural gas industry can help lead our economic recovery. 


Shovel-Ready and Shovel-Worthy


We have seen groups popping up and suggesting that now is a time for a transition to green energy and to move away from fossil fuels. Oil and natural gas projects are shovel-ready and shovel-worthy. These projects will put Canadians back to work with a multi-billion-dollar national supply chain, offer economic and self-sustaining opportunities for Indigenous communities and generate desperately-needed revenues for governments in the form of taxes and royalties.


Projects like the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX), officially started construction in Kamloops on June 1, and will offer 5,000 jobs at peak construction. These objectives can be achieved while leveraging the sector’s leadership on emissions reductions, water protection, land and species management.

Woodfibre LNG: A Canadian Opportunity to Reduce Global Emissions


A new study from Woodfibre LNG shows that Canadian natural gas exported through the Woodfibre LNG project will go to Asia where coal is the primary fuel source. When Woodfibre’s LNG displaces coal, there will be an emissions offset of 45%. That’s like taking 700,000 cars off the road or eliminating 76 years of Squamish’s emissions. See our most recent blog post for more information.   


Tilbury Phase 2 LNG Expansion


The Comment Period on the Initial Project Description for the Fortis BC, Tilbury Phase 2 LNG Expansion Project has opened. The Tilbury Phase 2 LNG Expansion Project will create about 110 long-term jobs after construction completes in 2028. It will improve the resiliency of the system that supplies BC homes and businesses with natural gas and advance LNG as a marine fuel. You can submit comments here to support their project.


We encourage your ongoing support of major projects in British Columbia as a way to ensure that investment continues and our industry can continue to drive our country’s economic recovery.

KURT PEATS: Does Somebody Have to Die Before the Cops do Something? ... or ... Why Don’t You Go and Catch Some Real Criminals?

We live in a topsy-turvy world.     Watching the evening news simply confirms that the chimpanzees are indeed in charge of guarding the bananas.   I’ve been a police officer for a quarter of a century and have been called upon to try and settle disputes that took many years to develop.   In fact, most disputes are far more complex than what a 30-second sound bite can possibly convey.     Did you ever wonder why the cops didn’t act when it is blatantly obvious that a person or a group of persons were breaking the law ?    The job of the police is complicated at the best of times. The officer is called upon to deal with both criminal and civil matters, and sometimes these matters are occurring simultaneously.    On a Saturday night, after dealing with the mud, the blood and the beer, (the criminal law side of the house), the officer will eventually deal with the ensuing family break-up, child custody issues (the civil law side of the house) and the like.

TODD STONE -- I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time

  The past few months have been a difficult time for our party. Following the resignation of our former leader, I have been carefully considering whether this was the right time for me to once again put my name forward for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party.   I focused on building out a core team and engaged with hundreds of British Columbians. A talented, growing campaign team, a strong fundraising group, and supporters in every corner of the province were at the ready to formally launch a campaign.   However, after spending the holidays with my family carefully weighing the decision, I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time.   Life’s most important decisions are those made with your heart. I am forever grateful for the support Chantelle and our three daughters have provided me throughout my political career. But it was driven home to me recently that my daughters don’t know a time when their dad wasn’t

Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says the natural gas and oil industry can be a foundation for national economic recovery

  On the good news front for 2021, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is forecasting a 14 per cent increase in upstream natural gas and oil investment in 2021 – an expected increase of $3.36 billion this year, reaching $27.3 billion.   The planned investment for 2021, while increasing from the lowest levels in more than a decade, would halt the dramatic decline seen since 2014, when investment sat at $81 billion. This year’s forecast represents a stabilizing of industry investment and the beginning of a longer-term economic recovery.   The additional spending is primarily focused in Alberta and British Columbia, while numbers in Saskatchewan show modest improvement and offshore investment in Atlantic Canada is expected to remain relatively stable compared to 2020.   Stated Tim McMillan, President and CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers: “ It is a positive sign to see capital investment numbers moving up from the record lows of 202
