Our energy sector is facing an unprecedented crisis right now.
We cannot let it fail. There's no economic comeback for the whole country without a strong energy sector ready to pick up the slack.
Our oil and gas sector has benefited every corner of the country, through transfer payments, royalties, and taxes. It’s meant hundreds of thousands of jobs for workers in every part of the country.
For years, we were targeted by a malicious landlock strategy by foreign funded activists who targeted Canada's number one export industry. They even managed to get two pipelines completely cancelled, while forcing others to go through endless delays.
And now our industry has been hit by a collapse in demand due to a global pandemic.
For the first time in history, the price of a barrel of oil went into negative pricing.
While there have been incremental steps to help our industry, we need much more serious federal action to ensure long-term survival so that it’s there to help us with a future recovery. Alberta’s oil and gas producers have always been there for Canada, it’s time the rest of the country be there for us.
Demand action from Ottawa. Albertans were there for Eastern Canada when the auto sector was hammered in 2008. It's time Albertans were shown full support. Sign if you're with us.
