Both the Alberta and federal government received a failing grade from industry for how they have handled issues affecting the industry, in a recent survey conducted by JWN.
A resounding 81 per cent of respondents said the Alberta New Democrat government’s efforts to link carbon taxes to pipeline approvals has failed.
Overall, 40 per cent of respondents gave the Alberta government an “F” on their performance on issues affecting the industry.
The federal government fared even worse, with 56 per cent of respondents giving it an F grade on issues affecting the industry.
The survey, which took place from November 2017 to early January, is part of JWN’s 2018 Oil & Gas Industry Outlook. Download it free here.
