Description

Navigating the sometimes uncomfortable reality of energy and the environment in Canada

In recent years, Canada’s focus on being a leading environmental citizen has come into apparent conflict with our desire to responsibly provide clean, affordable energy for a growing world that demands a higher standard of living for all. In this talk, Chris Slubicki, president and CEO of Modern Resources, will discuss the (at times) uncomfortable reality of energy and the environment in Canada and around the world. Canada’s unique combination of resources, policy and technology position our nation to be a leader in the future energy landscape: if we have the courage to stand up for our industry and way of doing things.


This is a luncheon Speaker Series presentation hosted by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP): all staff of CAPP member companies may attend. A box sandwich lunch will be provided: please arrive a few minutes early to get your lunch and seat, the presentation will begin promptly at noon.
