The Pacific Northwest Economic Region's annual summit was greeted by the Premier of Saskatchewan Brad Wall today, who didn't mince words with a few topics from the other side of the border.
Those included the Keystone XL pipeline, recent protectionist measures, and the assumption of Canadian oil being dirty.
Wall says while there is still work to do on making energy development in western Canada more sustainable, he says you won't find a country who invests more dollars per capita on C-0-2 reductions in terms of oil development.
500 delegates from across North America's Pacific Northwest are in Saskatoon this week to discuss policy issues affecting the region.
