Ethical Oil, Oct 25 2010
Ezra Levant makes a series of very credible arguements as to why the Athabasca oil sands is the most ethically superior source of new oil production available to help meet the rising global demand for oil. Despite claims to the contrary, Alberta has some of the most stringent environmental standards in the oil producing world (much more so than even California!!!) but more importantly Canada has a tremendous record in human rights and as a believer in world peace and stability. These are aspects that must be considered in any arguement regarding where oil is produced. As long as oil remains part of the energy mix, it ought to be produced in jurisdictions that have sincere environmental concerns and standards, that treat men and women equally, that respect employees and reward them fairly, that are generous with local populations and communities, and that recognize their global responsibilities to help those that are most vulnerable. No oil exporting jurisdiction does all those things better than Canada.
