U.S. open to more Canadian oil and gas but needs to ‘define our terms’ for future expansion

In an interview on this week’s edition of ‘The West Block’, U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Cohen says that Washington is open to more Alberta oil and gas but says that would not be a short term solution to solve consumer pain at the gas pumps. The ambassador also made it clear that the U.S. wants to focus the future on green energy sources. “As a policy objective in the energy space, we have to be very careful about making tens of billions of dollars of investments that will produce more fossil fuels five years from now, 10 years from now, 20 years from now, that will increase emissions and make it difficult or impossible to achieve the climate change targets that we need to achieve,” the ambassador said.
