Minister Oliver: Increasing Pipeline Capacity Critical to Canadian Jobs and Long-Term Prosperity

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, Feb 7, 2013 (Marketwire via COMTEX) -- The Honourable Joe Oliver, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, today released the following statement following the release of a report by the Canada West Foundation entitled Pipe or Perish: Saving an Oil Industry at Risk.

"Today's report released by the Canada West Foundation reinforces what our Government has said all along: reaching new markets for our natural resources is critical for Canadian jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity across our country.

"Natural resource development supports approximately 1.6 million jobs across Canada and generates billions of dollars worth of revenue to help pay for important social programs like health care and education.

"Our Government's plan for Responsible Resource Development is eliminating wasteful duplication in the approval process, while strengthening environmental protection, and enhancing consultations with Aboriginal peoples. We are also keeping taxes low and working aggressively to open new markets for Canada's natural resources across the world.

"Independent regulators will conduct a comprehensive objective scientific evaluation to determine whether any specific project passes regulatory muster and is safe for Canadians and safe for the environment.

"Our commitment to developing Canada's natural resources is helping to strengthen our economy, solidify our economic recovery and position Canada to complete and prosper over the long term." NRCan's news releases and backgrounders are available at
