Despite sitting on the world’s third largest oil reserves, Canada remains at a competitive disadvantage.
According to a recent report by Scotiabank, a lack of new pipelines to transport Canada’s growing supplies cost Canada $15.6 billion. Without the infrastructure in place to access new markets, Canada is forced to sell our resources at a significant discount.
Recent findings from the International Energy Agency show global demand for energy, including oil and gas, will continue to increase over the coming decades.
We can choose to let Canada's responsible energy meet that growing demand, or let foreign countries like Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Angola beat Canada to it.
With new pipelines, we can:
- Strengthen Canada’s ability to be a supplier of choice for energy around the world;
- Bring jobs and economic benefits to our communities; and
- Provide funding for health care, education and infrastructure.
Your voice can help make a difference. By pledging your support today, and making your voice heard, you can ensure we build the economic infrastructure needed to keep Canada prosperous.
Now is our chance to show our support for Canadian energy, for Canadian jobs and for Canadian workers. Market access is vital to the wellbeing of our country. Will you sign the pledge?
I believe that Canadians deserve full value for our energy resources, and that Canada is uniquely positioned to provide safe and reliable energy here at home, and to the world. I am a proud supporter of Canadian energy projects in development and believe we need to build the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. We have the resources, we have the right projects, it’s time to move forward and ensure a better future for Canada.
