January 31, 2018 | How Crude Oil Exports Pay Canada’s bills

Stewart Muir is founder and executive director of the Resource Works Society, a Vancouver-based group open to participation by British Columbians from all walks of life who are concerned about their future economic opportunities. He is an author, journalist and historian with experience on three continents including a financial editor of The Vancouver Sun responsible for mining and markets coverage. Since Resource Works was established in 2014, the group has gained international recognition for its practical approach to the public challenges of responsible natural resource development and use.

Canadians enjoy the sixth highest standard of living in the world. This single largest factor behind this is our ability to export crude oil.


At a time when some politicians are focused only on spending priorities, it is critically important to remember that every dollar out requires a dollar in.

Crude oil – including oil sent through pipelines to the west coast of Canada – is critically important.

Act now

Resource Works is asking those who value Canada’s success in sharing its prosperity to remind politicians in Ottawa, and Victoria, of these basics. Write a letter, make a call, send an email – these are things any citizen can do.
