Shortly before they called the election, the Federal Government launched an engagement process asking Canadians for their views on how they can implement a ‘Just Transition’ for Canadians whose livelihoods are impacted by domestic climate policies.
They are using the engagement to help determine principles for potential legislation as well as the formation of a ‘Just Transition Advisory Body’.
The engagement close on September 30th, so we need to ensure we get as many submissions in support of Canada’s natural gas and oil industry in as possible. We know opponents of Canada’s industry are working hard to get thousands of people to make submissions calling for the end of Canadian oil and gas development.
As Canada talks of ‘just transitions’, global energy demand is growing rapidly. In Europe, low renewable output and natural gas supply constraints are causing sharp increases in electricity prices right as their economies begin to recover. In September, spot prices for electricity reached record levels in the United Kingdom. Some countries, including the UK are turning to coal to fill gaps at high cost, while others are looking to Russia for help alleviating the crisis.
These are not lasting solutions.
So, we need you to make a submission today to stand up for the over 500,000 people and thousands of businesses who rely on Canada’s oil and natural gas industry.
Canadian oil and natural gas is some of the most sustainably produced energy in the world. If the world is going to demand energy and continue turning to coal, do we not have a responsibility to ensure our cleaner product is meeting demand?
A strong and growing oil and natural gas industry is how Canada will create real jobs for our recovery while helping reduce global emissions.
Will you make your voice heard? if you want to send your own submission, in your own words, you can do so by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org – we included some of our recommendations for the government as well as some facts about Canada’s oil and natural gas industry to support your submission below the form.
