CALGARY Event: Oil Respect Campaign Launch
February 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Oil Respect—standing up for Canada’s oil and gas industry
The Canadian oil and gas industry is one of the most regulated and technologically advanced industries in the world. Each year the industry safely produces, refines, transports, and distributes products from jet fuel to fertilizer while providing well-paying jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues for all Canadians. Yet, despite these facts, government policy and popular sentiment seem increasingly intent on marginalizing the sector and divesting from resource development.
In his presentation Oil Respect—standing up for Canada’s oil and gas industry Mr. Mark Scholz, President of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors, will be defending the industry with respect to its: national and international image; economic benefits; and global environmental impact. Through an analysis of facts, Mr. Scholz will advocate for the sector and provide industry supporters with a voice to make their opinions heard.
