AFD Petroleum Ltd. has officially declared support for the Oil Respect campaign launched by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contactors on February 17, 2016.
“Nothing could be more important for our company than pushing for a fact-based discussion about oil and gas development” declared Parker McLean, CEO. “We have had to let go great employees just to remain in business. We’re now asking our employees, past and present, to support Oil Respect by signing the petitions asking for recognition of the importance of the industry and to get pipelines built so that we can compete on a level playing field against foreign oil.”
Oil Respect is about standing up for hardworking oil families and businesses who are struggling. It’s about respecting the facts, workers and the contributions this industry provides to Canadians.
Oil Respect will fight against the misinformation spread by foreign celebrities, radical environmentalists and grandstanding politicians at a time when tens of thousands of people are without work and without hope for an immediate recovery. It will demand action by federal and provincial governments on pipelines, the safest and most effective way to transport oil and gas products.
Oil Respect is a national campaign to allow regular Canadians to share their personal stories and demand respect for their industry.
