[VIDEO] Oil Sands Debate at Cambridge House Investment Conference – Marin Katusa from Casey Research and Rex Weyler from Greenpeace

22 Jan

An excellent, well informed and well thought out debate on Canada’s Oil Sands and especially the proposed pipelines that are supposed to run through BC.

It’s great to see some common sense thrown in this mix and not just yelling and screaming from both sides.  It seems like the pipeline debate in BC is dominated by PR talking points on both sides.

It’s refreshing to see 2 people who are clearly on opposite sides of this debate talk it out and propose some sensible solutions.


Marin Katusa – Casey Research Chief Energy Investment Strategist
Rex Weyler – Co-founder of Greenpeace
