Fort McMurray Alberta - Sweet Sweet Oil

4 years ago

I was inspired to make this post due to the hippies protesting in Ottawa during our Canada Day long weekend with their "dirtied Canadian flag" and dirty oil pamphlets frowning upon the oilsands in my province. Fort McMurray is the heart of the Alberta and Canadian economy with the millions of barrels of oil extracted per day. The main reason people go up there is probably work, otherwise it most likely is for an oil sands tour which would run you about $45 and includes a tour of Suncor Energy, admission to the Oil Sands Discovery Center & admission to Heritage Park. There are the basic outdoorsy type of things to do there such as hunting, skiing, snowshoeing, and fishing, but I would not eat any of the fish caught around this area as there have been incidences of mutated fish due to pollution shown on the news lol. Before you go all hippie like on me about how bad the oil sands are, keep in mind that everything you have in your home had to be transported there somehow and no form of energy is not harmful or without consequences because even wind energy can have an impact on climate change.

Does your state/province have any sort of natural resources that help out your economy?
Is there an issue with pollution where you live or in your province/state?
