A new report from the Conference Board of Canada is giving the thumbs-up to a refinery project northeast of Edmonton.The first phase of the Sturgeon Refinery is just about complete, and the Board says government investment in the project was the right thing to do, as it will create thousands of jobs.The Alberta Federation of Labour is happy with the report.President Gil McGowan says they’ve been saying for years Alberta should be refining its own raw bitumen.“This is an arm of the energy industry that can thrive even in a low price environment, like the one that we’re dealing with right now, so this is exactly the kind of project that we should be looking at to help us, you know through what is a very difficult time,” he said.The Sturgeon Refinery is projected to add $2.3-billion to Canada’s GDP annually. by Mike Tarasko Posted Dec 6, 2016 7:33 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email nwrsturgeonrefinery.com AFL welcomes Conference Board report on Sturgeon Refinery
