Email Regina City Council
On the same day Canada received the devastating news that Keystone XL was cancelled, 7 members of Regina’s City Council decided to include Canadian natural gas and oil companies on a list of businesses to be prohibited from advertising with the city.
This list includes firearm manufacturers, tobacco companies, and pornography companies.
Can you believe this? We can’t.
Thankfully, Mayor Masters, Councillors Findura, Bresciani, and Shaw voted against this absurd motion.
Canadian natural gas and oil companies are proud corporate citizens and strong supporters of the communities in which they operate. To include them in the same list as weapons manufacturers, pornography companies, and tobacco companies is nothing more than cynical politicking.
Canadian oil and gas companies provide good-paying jobs for hundreds of thousands of Canadians – including over 30,000 right here in Saskatchewan.
We risk every single one of these jobs when we let these motions go unchecked. So will you send an email to Regina’s Mayor and Councillors letting them know you oppose this ill-conceived motion? It only takes a minute and when Councillors hear your voice it makes a difference.
