In this letter, Notley emphasizes something, “my Albanian colleagues, their energy resources, the natural heritage of each person in this province, are sold for almost nothing”.
Likewise, it highlights that a decision must be made with real repercussions for the workers and for the economy itself. In addition to this, there is a need to express the problems that Alberta faces.
Problems that must be addressed
First, it is Notley suggests that you should know the problems to face.
“We are in a position where we cannot move our oil because the government after the government in Ottawa has not been able to build pipelines. The existing pipes are full. Record amounts of oil are sent by rail, but not enough to reduce the delay. As a result, more of our oil is stored than ever before: 35 million barrels”.
Similarly, it reads, “With so much oil just sitting there, you cannot move, it’s selling at sale prices, around $ 10 a barrel. Other petroleum products around the world sell for five, six times more. It is absurd, economically dangerous and cannot be allowed to continue”.
