The Province needs to expand the natural resource sector: Bob Zimmer

“The Natural resource sector employs thousands of people in BC and is continually growing,” Zimmer said. “…Developing natural resources creates direct job and jobs supporting industries.”

Zimmer says the natural resources sector employs 50 thousand people in British Columbia and further development will only see this number grow. He also says the country hasn’t seen a new refinery built in nearly 30 years and the few large refineries in Western Canada are unable to meet the demands of the market.

“It’s time to improve our capacity to process crude oil,” says Zimmer. “Creating new value-added oil processing in BC would create thousands of permanent jobs and new opportunities for Canadians.”

The addition to increased refining capacity would  improve price stability at the gas pumps and is a “positive step in improving Canada’s energy infrastructure.”
