CAPP issued a statement in response to the results of Canada's Federal Election on Monday, October 21, 2019:
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers congratulates Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party on securing a minority government. We also congratulate new and returning Members of Parliament and thank all candidates who ran for their commitment to public service.
The election of a minority government reflects the diversity of Canadians and the need to work constructively together to achieve our mutual goals. We all agree on the importance of making life affordable for Canadians, enabling results on climate change, and creating prosperity for all.
CAPP is committed to working with the federal government. A strong oil and natural gas industry can contribute to the government’s mandate and benefit all Canadians by providing affordable energy, prosperity, and creating opportunities for Indigenous communities.
-Tim McMillan, CAPP president and CEO
