While I don’t think anyone would argue that we need to clean up our act when it comes to greenhouse gases and carbon, most oil and gas companies are attempting to do just that. That, however, is not the whole story and as the Canadian Government tries to walk a tight rope between the indigenous peoples’ rights and Canada’s energy-based economy there is more to be done. Perhaps it time to change the conversation and do a little more education. We keep sending messages to the public about what that oil does in the way of jobs but who besides people who lively depends on it cares? Maybe we should be educating the public more on what and how our oil is used to make every day that they want and need. Sure we all think that everybody knows what has some kind of petroleum in it, but do they really? If they do then perhaps its time we gave them a refresher course. I believe the government and the energy sector as a whole could be better in their messaging. What is that old adage – Not in my backyard – we hear that refrain all the time. No pipeline in my backyard or through my province or territory! Well if you’re not into oil then perhaps you are willing to give up what you use every day that it helps to produce.
