For the vast majority of the world, the COVID-19 global pandemic has been an unprecedented and often distressing experience. Planes have stopped flying, cars have stopped driving, and businesses across North America have been forced to close as stay-at-home orders were implemented to combat the spread.
With its most recent report attacking Canada’s oil and natural gas industry, Environmental Defence Canada is using the fringe activist playbook by combining biased opinion and manipulated data and dressing it all up as a research report.
Many of us have had to make significant sacrifices in order to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, that hasn’t stopped Canadian’s from stepping up to do their part and contribute when they can.
Norway gets it. It’s only the world’s 15th largest oil producing nation – Canada ranks 4th – but Norway gets it. The country recognizes how critical its oil and natural gas industry is to the health and well-being of the economy and its citizens. As a country, Norway recognizes you can have a world-class industry, producing an essential product, while still being an environmental leader.
It seems like every week there is a new report from some activist organization trying to push the mythical narrative that the production of oil and natural gas in Canada is heavily subsidized.
