Nobody ever talks about the socioeconomic benefits of the oil and gas industry because it would ruin the narrative for environmentalists and doesn’t make for a flashy headline, but there are many communities that benefit from the industry.
Watch as I show you two in particular that have greatly benefitted from oil and gas projects and the jobs they generate-Newfoundlanders who found a solution to the chronic unemployment they faced when cod fishing collapsed and First Nations groups like those in Fort Mackay.
If we continue to let the lies about the industry control the narrative, we’ll be suffering in poverty ourselves like we see in Ontario where citizens are in energy poverty, unable to afford to pay their bills to keep the lights on or their homes heated.
Soon this will come to Alberta, where a destructive green energy focussed government is driving investments and prosperity out of the province.
Canadians need to hear more about the socioeconomic benefits of the oil and gas industry and the human impact of demonizing it with lies.
