    Alberta fighting to Keep Canada Working

    With pipeline delays now costing Canadians more than $80 million per day, Alberta is launching the next phase of the nationwide Keep Canada Working campaign.

    Minister Bilous introduces the next phase of the nationwide Keep Canada Working campaign.

    The latest push includes a real-time lost-revenue counter, which illustrates just how much Canadians will miss out on by keeping our energy resources landlocked. It is estimated that more than $6 billion in revenue has been lost across the country since the Federal Court of Appeal ruled against the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion on Aug. 30. This money could have gone to build roads, schools and hospitals.

    The counter will be displayed digitally at locations near Parliament Hill in Ottawa, supported by advertisements in various formats from coast to coast.

    “From Day 1, we’ve been fighting for Trans Mountain. Under Premier Rachel Notley’s leadership, more Canadians than ever before support this project because they know we shouldn’t be selling our products on the cheap. There’s too much at stake. We will keep the federal government’s feet to the fire so that this project isn’t delayed any further.”

    Deron Bilous, Minister of Economic Development and Trade

    In early 2016, just four in 10 Canadians wanted to see the Trans Mountain Pipeline built. Thanks to Alberta’s nationwide efforts, that number is now seven in 10, as more Canadians recognize that creating good energy jobs and doing the right thing for the environment can go hand-in-hand.

    The current oil price differential is a stark illustration of why new pipelines are urgently needed. The government has also been engaging industry leaders on a number of different approaches to ease the differential, with more details to be announced at a later date.

    Background

    • Alberta has spent $10 million on this campaign, reaching over 10 million Canadians from coast to coast since it began in May 2018.
    • It’s estimated that the discount on Canadian oil caused by pipeline bottlenecks now costs producers and the Canadian economy as much as $84 million per day. This figure is calculated with methodology used by Scotiabank, and has been revised based on the current $45-per-barrel difference between WTI and WCS.

  • From Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT)

    Investigation continues into RCMP officer-involved shooting

    On April 6, 2019, at approximately 8:15 a.m., RCMP were advised of an Eckville, Alberta location where stolen oilfield property might be found.

    An RCMP officer responded to the reported location at the rear of a strip of businesses on the north side of Eckville.

    The officer found four vehicles at the location. As the officer was checking the vehicles, he located a man who appeared to be sleeping in a Ford F250 truck and made cursory observations of the interior of the vehicle. The officer returned to his police vehicle and checked the licence plate number, which came back registered to a different vehicle. The officer requested assistance to his location, placed a spike belt and returned to his police vehicle to await assistance.

    While the officer was waiting for assistance, a confrontation occurred that resulted in the officer discharging his service pistol.

    The man sustained a single gunshot wound that resulted in serious, but not life-threatening injuries. He was treated on scene by EMS, transported to hospital and admitted. He remains in hospital.

    The Ford F250 was determined to have been stolen approximately 5 days earlier from Saskatoon and the licence plate was also determined to have been stolen.

    With the investigation underway, ASIRT will not make any further comment until the matter is concluded.
