Mr. Speaker, some of our colleagues have been spreading much misinformation about the Teck Frontier mine project, so I want to take a moment to correct some of it.
Teck is indeed building a 260,000 barrel-a-day mine in northern Alberta and will invest $20 billion to build it. Alberta needs new investment and the 7,000 construction jobs, as well as the 2,500 jobs in operations that will follow.
I will mention some facts that have been left out. It has one of the lowest water use intensities in the oil sands. It has lower carbon emissions intensity than about half of the oil currently refined in the U.S. It is reclaiming land as mining progresses. It has a leading-edge tailings management system.
Do members know that 14 local indigenous communities are supportive of the project?
The government should approve this project and let us get on with shipping Canadian energy to the world.
