We deliver more than products and energy.
These are the stories of people who see the importance of what pipelines bring to their businesses, their communities and their lives.
For me, pipelines are a way to build our city and help ensure our young people can work right here at home.
I don’t separate environmental responsibility and economic growth. You can’t have one without the other. There has to be equilibrium. Where we can, we should reduce our environmental footprint.
Canada is rich in natural resources. Development of those resources drives our economy. These resources belong to all Canadians and it is our joint responsibility to ensure they are developed for the benefit of all in the most environmentally and fiscally responsible manner.
It’s become increasingly apparent that pipelines are probably the most important cog in Canada’s energy infrastructure. Pipelines criss-cross our nation. Most people aren’t event aware that they are there.
I would hate to see anything happen that would diminish the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. At the same time, I sleep well at night knowing that there are safeguards in place that work incredibly well to reduce the risk of pipeline-related incidents.
Energy is such a big economic driver, we can't ignore it. At the same time, we need to move forward with a full understanding that we also need to protect the environment. The choice is not one or the other. I think we can and must do both.
