The oil and gas sector is a vital part of our economy, not only for Saskatchewan, but our entire nation. The Saskatchewan Liberal Party finds it deeply concerning that the leaders of the federal Green Party as well as the Bloc Quebecois have declared oil “dead”.
This industry is critical to our economic future, and one that many hardworking families rely upon. In these challenging times we need to be supportive of one another, and to disregard an entire industry is disrespectful to the livelihoods of those hardworking people.
We categorically stand by the Canadian oil and gas industry. The world is facing unprecedented challenges and navigating through them after this pandemic is over will be difficult enough.
The path forward is to work with the oil and gas industry as we rebuild our economy, while supporting innovative and practical solutions to address our climate goals and create a greener energy future.
