If you mine it here, upgrade it here

Good morning from scenic Parksville, BC!

The BC adventure continues, and at some point in the next day or so I will sit down and reflect on it at blakeonthecoast.

In the meantime, though, it seems that things are heating up back in Alberta.

In particular, i'm really happy about Jim's latest comments regarding the upgrading of our natural resources right here in Alberta. It only stands to reason that we generate as much wealth as we can from the resources that are under our feet.

In addition to benefiting the provincial coffers, a targeted strategy to encourage Alberta-based resource refinement can also be the key to ensuring the "Alberta Advantage" is spread beyond the Highway 2 corridor.

Its our resource, we all deserve a piece of the pie.

Bravo, Jim!

  1. I'm sure that Ed, Mark, Jim, et al have been talking about this issue and many others long before they have been quoted in the newspaper as such.

    One of the reasons Jim is such an easy sell in McMurray is because of the attention he has given our city, both in the media and on the ground.

    Everyone else appears to be playing catch-up on that front now.
