The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors is fed up with the anti-oil rhetoric in Canada. So the CAODC created oilrespect.ca, with the message: “Help Us Defend Canadian Oil & Gas”. They write “hundreds of thousands of Canadians benefit directly, and millions more indirectly, from developing our oil and gas resources. It’s time for Canadians to RESPECT their oil and gas sector”. they add that “Canadians produce among the most responsible oil and gas products in the world”. So why shouldn’t we be more supportive and respective? Is this a good initiative?
There are thousands of individual stories of Canadians in distress over how the plummeting price of oil is devastating their lives. That’s been met by snide sniping by more than a few who lecture about oil workers not having prepared for the inevitable downturn.
