April 21, 2017 - Natural Resources Canada is looking for public input on Canada's energy future and the path to reducing the country's carbon footprint.

Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources Jim Carr today launched Generation Energy, a website that invites Canadians to share their ideas and participate in helping define Canada’s energy future.

Carr launched the event at Manitoba Hydro, where he led a panel discussion with energy experts including Cheryl Cardinal, CEO of the Indigenous Centre for Energy; Aisha Bukhari of the Women in Renewable Energy Advisory Committee; and, Patrick Dillon, Business Manager of the Construction Trades Council of Ontario.

“As we celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we should be proud that ingenuity and hard work have made us one of the leading energy producers and innovators in the world," Carr said in a news release. "One of the greatest challenges of this generation is building an energy future that addresses climate change while keeping energy affordable, ensures there are jobs for Canadians, and allows our industries to remain competitive. Generation Energy is about engaging Canadians in helping us to chart that course.”

Generation Energy will be a six-month national conversation that will take place face to face with provinces and territories, Indigenous groups, international experts and academics, and online with all Canadians through The conversation will conclude with a national symposium in Winnipeg.

I live in Alberta and once again am living in another unsure time. The wealth below our our feet have provided a good living for many decades. The opportunities that are being squandered now is unbelievable. The engine in Canada is being allowed to fail without a replacement solution. Talking points are being egnored as politicians do not have strategy ready to implement to replace jobs and ready the future for the prosperity promised.
Canada has always been a leader in innovation in the recovery, storage and treatment of fossil fuels in a environmentally responsible way, but somehow this government is set to totally demolish our way of life and future potential of this country.
Jobs, prosperity, security and unity of our country are what is at risk because of ideology of this government.
THis government will not have the money necessary for all the social programs and bigger government it is proposing if it decimate the energy industry.
