ANALYSIS: How Big Oil's strategy hollows out our economy

Submitted by Tyee staff, 11 Dec 2013

 

Robyn Allan is an independent economist and former CEO of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. She has written extensively on the economics of Northern Gateway.

"This video presentation," she writes in the post associating this video on her blog, "addresses the impact of the Federal government’s energy policy. It exposes how a handful of multinational corporations and state-owned national oil companies from foreign countries plan to exploit our energy resources. It reveals how heavy oil pipeline projects—along with the tanker traffic they trigger—promise economic, social, cultural and environmental harm."
