Canadian Energy Centre director of research Mark Milke was on the Danielle Smith show to discuss the dependency of G20 democracies on tyranny oil and gas.
Back in 2009 Russia cut off the natural gas supply to Ukraine in mid-winter, ostensibly over a pricing dispute. That action was a reminder of this hard fact: energy can and is used as an economic and political weapon by autocratic regimes — in this instance, Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
Human beings are hard-wired to respond to stories that paint a relatable picture of whatever issue is at hand.
This Research Brief (which can be downloaded here as a pdf) estimates the gross revenue contribution that Canada’s energy sector, broadly speaking, and the oil and gas sector, specifically, made to federal, provincial, and municipal governments between 2000 and 2018. Gross revenues include personal and corporate federal and provincial income taxes, indirect taxes, royalties, and crown lease payments. This Research Brief updates previous research that the Canadian Energy Centre undertook on this subject.¹
In this CEC Research Brief (which can be downloaded here as a pdf), we examine reserves or remaining marketable natural gas resources,¹ marketable production, and revenue trends in natural gas markets in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland & Labrador and compare them to key northern US states (Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Dakota, and West Virginia). The latter have all experienced significant increases in production over the past decade.
Canadian Energy Centre Executive Director of Research Mark Milke joined National Post Radio host Anthony Furey to discuss the centre’s latest Fact Sheet on the economic impact of the oil and gas industry on Ontario.
Canadian Energy Centre Executive Director of Research Mark Milke joined It’s Your Business host Mario Toneguzzi to discuss the findings of new research on the impact of the oil and gas sector, along with Alberta, on Ontario’s economy.
It’s a truism of politics that “all politics is local,” as the 1980s’-era Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, Tip O’Neill put it.
Canada’s oil and gas industry has a positive impact on many sectors of the Canadian economy, not only in Alberta but across the country. In this CEC Fact Sheet (which can be downloaded here as a pdf), we examine the direct and indirect impact that the oil and gas sector has had on the Ontario economy.¹ Given that the largest proportion of oil and gas activity in Canada occurs in Alberta, we also profile the impact of purchases from Alberta on specific Ontario sectors.
