    Did you know Canada…  we’ve talked before about the Oil Sands in Alberta and Saskatchewan, but I think it’s important to remind you that Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world!  With 97% of those reserves in the Oil Sands- 168 billion barrels with the potential of over 100 years of production.

    This also has the potential to create over 800,000 jobs in the next 25 years because petroleum is part of our every day lives.  All Canadians rely on petroleum to make gasoline for transportation and the countless other products that are made from crude oil such as heat, clothing, cosmetics, building materials and plastics.

    Just take a look at a day and the life of my family…

    sb

    – got myself and the kids dressed and I put on some quick make up for the day
    – took the kids to school in the van (and their school just completed construction on a new wing to prepare for Full Day Kindergarten)
    – picked up my coffee
    – drove to the big city to buy Lucas some more summer pj’s as it’s getting hot in here finally after that crazy cold winter
    – take the van to pick the kids up from school and after dinner and homework
    – then it’s on to the big kids baseball game

    Every step of the day includes cosmetics, plastics and we all know no one could have survived this winter without heat.  Canada’s energy future lies in the Oil Sands as it is a secure source to meet our growing demands and is essential to our current lifestyle.  How does petroleum come into play in your day to day life?
