Canadian jobs are an attractive alternative to imported oil




MONTREAL — Canada has the third-largest oil reserves in the world, but we import large volumes of oil from foreign sources into Eastern Canada, including Quebec, every day.

Surprised?

Well, you are not alone.

Oil refineries in Quebec and Atlantic Canada import more than 600,000 barrels per day from foreign sources. But with Canadian oil production growing, using Canadian crude oil in Quebec, instead of imports, is an attractive option.

First, we know the regulations under which Canada’s oil is produced. While some will argue our energy future should not include oil, the reality is that it will; so producing Canadian oil safely, and continuously improving environmental performance, is our best, most reasonable choice.

Many foreign oil suppliers to Quebec, such as Algeria, Angola and Kazakhstan, don’t have the regulatory system or transparent environmental reporting that Canada has in place.

Producing nicely along with heavy crude and bitumen. There will be more soon when CO2 pipelines start criss crossing the Prairie.

Oil is one side of the money and job train.
From what I gather the chemicals in the make up are and can be value added.

CO-OP Regina refines down to pharmaceutical levels. One of six that work at high volumes.
