Canadian resources are the backbone of our economy.
Each year, the oil and gas sector alone contributes an estimated $15 billion to government tax revenues here in Canada.
This in addition to supporting hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs.
But instead of standing up for the industry’s development, the majority of our politicians seem to be actively plotting against it.
The truth is, the world will continue to need and demand resources like oil and gas for decades to come.
Resources that could come from brutal, repressive regimes like Iran and Saudi Arabia - or that could come from here in Canada.
We, the undersigned, call on the federal and provincial governments to support the responsible development of Canadian resources, including the construction of pipelines, and to abandon onerous and discriminatory legislation like bill C-48 that continues to strangle this country’s most important industry.
