Letter: Canada’s crucial opportunity to support global energy security
We are pleased to continue to dialogue with you regarding our members’ commitments to provide clean, affordable, safe and secure energy to Canadians and the world at large. We agree wholeheartedly with the Prime Minister that, “protecting the environment and growing our economy go hand-in-hand,” and the upstream natural gas and oil industry shares the government’s commitment to reducing emissions and addressing global climate change. We believe that growing Canadian oil and natural gas exports is the solution to both reducing global emissions and enhancing energy security.
In this letter, we present the current global energy context including demand growth and security issues, and offer our position on how Canada’s responsibly produced oil and natural gas can play global roles in addressing both security and emissions.
