When will CNRL announce. Surely they can’t sit it out.

I heard recently with the handling of the Covid situation at CNRL/Imperial that a number of fly in employees will not be returning to work. Has anyone heard this?
CPC has pledged to support the oil and gas industry if they win the next election. Erin O’Toole has pledged to increase support, cut funding to manufacturing in eastern Canada, and transfer payments to Quebec. They will also force those in Eastern Canada to wear his stupid “I love Oil and gas T-shirt”. Will it work? Not a chance O’Toole needs a re-toole
I suspect we will get a bailout.
We just need to whine and complain like we are used to “the west wants in”, “we are the engine that drives Canada”, “we send transfer payments to the rest of Canada”. Etc.
Let’s face it oil will be gone. It isn’t the future.
But let’s complain to get federal support.
No need to diversify our oil based economy.
2000 Lay offs starting next week with the Cenovus take over of Husky and will continue till the end of March.
Looks like the old cow we are so used to milking for oil is running dry. Where is that heritage fund for that rainy day? We are so dependent on oil it’s not funny.
Looks like we will have to ensure all those eggs (economy) we have in the oil basket aren’t cracked. We must continue to push the rest of Canada to help us and continue to “cry” western alienation, the west wants in, etc. this will be the only way we will survive. Let’s face it we didn’t invest in a green economy. We are so used to these boom and bust cycles.
Something seriously needs to be done. Oil and gas is Canada. Clearly the lefties don’t get it.
We are protecting our oil and gas the most important thing at all costs including healthcare and education during a pandemic. What has the rest of Canada done except complain for more money.
Alberta is the engine that drives the rest of Canada. Without us the rest of Canada would not get any transfer payments.
Research has shown that for every $1 spent in Alberta it benefits the rest of Canada by $12. This is a clear indication that the government should assist Alberta first. The rest of Canada will see a boom from the spinoff effects. I don’t get what the government doesn’t understand about this.
