Today is the last day of the Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show. 

Regina—Qu'Appelle MP Andrew Scheer gave a speech and introduced Conservative Leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre yesterday.   

Scheer said it’s great to see the restrictions lifted, and this event being held.  

“There’s a lot of excitement, a lot of optimism, I’m just so grateful for all the work that the people in the oil and gas sector do to keep our homes warm in the winter, and our fresh fruits and vegetables coming in all year round.” 

Scheer said he wished the federal government respected this industry.  

“I’m here with my colleague Pierre Poilievre who’s running for the leadership of our party,” said Scheer. “He’s such a champion of Canadian energy.” 

Pierre Poilievre said it was great to be in southern Saskatchewan, with so many hardworking entrepreneurs and energy workers.  

“I'm inspired by the technology, the know-how and the common sense of the people,” said Poilievre. “I can't wait to remove the gatekeepers that have held back our energy sector so we can produce more ethical Canadian energy for all Canadians.” 

He added it’s important to have the show so people can learn about the sector. 

“There's a lot of misinformation about the sector, and Canadians need to understand that we have the most ethical and environmentally responsible energy sector on Earth. The best way to supply ourselves with energy is to make it right here in Canada.”   

In his speech, Poilievre committed that his government would repeal the No New Pipelines law, support the Northern Gateway project, and engage with the White House. 

The Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show takes place until 3:00 p.m. today.
