Northern Gateway Project An Enormous Opportunity For Canada's Building Trades

CALGARY, Jan. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - The Northern Gateway Project is a game changer for construction workers in the coming years.  It opens new markets for "Made in Canada" oil products not only for North American customers but now to the world's second largest economic region.

Robert Blakely, Director of Canadian Affairs says "canadian construction workers will benefit not only from the initial build but also from oil and gas infrastructure expansion in Alberta of Canada's reserve of petroleum products.  As we already know, when oil and gas investment is made in Alberta, all regions of Canada benefit.  When the Gateway is finished it opens up new markets to Canadians in every industry".

Pipeline building will not only increase the petroleum production capabilities of Canada, but will further cement our place as an oil-producing country in an increasingly energy hungry world. There are an estimated 315 billion barrels of oil available in the oil sands - the continued expansion of this resource will contribute to Canada's energy super power status.

John Telford, Canadian Director for the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters says "this project will provide jobs to members in Eastern Canada as well as the West. "

The regulation of the oil and gas industry as a whole ensures that the impact to the environment and native peoples will be minimal and the benefits should far exceed any possible drawbacks.
