Our province has announced a new energy plan today. The document has been on the drawing boards for at least a decade but now it's finalized. The wording is great prior to an election less than a month away. "achieve self-reliance and prosperity, as well as develop sustainable green energy solutions for the 21st century." Masters of our own house speech again but this time it takes things up a notch. The new document calls for a ten percent equity in all oil/gas projects down our road to being masters of our own house. That's twice as much then our 4.9 percent we recently got from the Hebron deal. The ordinary Joe like myself can only look at it all in awe and agree with the wording we see. Those who do not agree have their own reasons, some may be political but i'm sure they're all not. One sentence in the news release said it all for me. "History reveals the price we have paid for lack of proper planning."
lets hope we get it right this time around. At least we have a plan to start with!
