- Energy use and fossil fuel consumption is directly linked to an increased quality of life and a higher GDP.
- As the world population grows from 7 to 10 billion by 2050 and developing nations continue to advance their economies, we will require more energy.
- According to a new investment report from the Bank of Montreal, Canada ranks #1 of major oil producers in Environmental, Social and Governance standards. Producing more energy with a lower environmental footprint requires countries like Canada.
- From 2015 to 2017, the oil and gas industry spent $2.75 billion on clean tech.
- Fossil fuels are intrinsically linked with how we provide healthcare. From powering hospitals to the petrochemicals in hygienic single-use equipment, fossil fuels are saving lives.

He estimates that once the new regulation comes in and with the additional increase in the carbon tax, gas prices could jump $0.22 a litre.
