    Well done in stepping up to show leadership in this issue by putting forth a near term initiative for skilled worker transition to a post carbon economy. This is action all Canadians should be able to get behind by bringing to the attention of their MP’s to support regardless of our region. We all benefit when our market displaced workers are invested in and supported.

    We have an opportunity to take start fresh in the energy sector in Canada. This plan put forth by by the WCP wants to " put Canada on the path to becoming a leader in renewable energy, and a net exporter of renewable energy products, services and technology" and to take the opportunity to improve the quality of life of trades people, their families and the nation by reorienting labour toward new and diverse forms of energy production and energy efficiency retrofitting. " Those quotes are from WCP and I support those concepts whole heartedly. I also see this as an opportunity to reap the benefits of value added production and get out of the traditional approach of the past, of exporting raw materials fpr processing and manufacture elsewhere. We also have the opportunity to build equity and ownership in the energy sector rather than turning it over lock stock and barrel to multi-national corporations. Let’s get moving!
