Prime Minister of Canada share his concern in the country’s oil patch
On Tuesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau caused alarm in the country’s oil field.
When he picked two men with strong environmental histories to lead his government’s battle against climate change, he sparked hope among environmentalists.
“This will be extremely troubling and irritating for everyone involved in Canada’s natural resource sector,” Heather Exner-Pirot, a fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, said. She spoke from Calgary, the oil patch’s epicentre.
“Now someone who has worked for Greenpeace… will have a huge impact on how we go with our resource development,” she continued.
