Sample quote:
"My view of what’s happening is Mr. Prentice, and previously Ms. Redford, were simply taking marching orders from the (oil) industry, who are focused on maximizing their profits and doing so at the expense of creating jobs in Alberta or Canada. So we need to focus more on [bitumen] upgrading, diversification and long-term job creation. I actually think there’s a lot to be gained by working with other provinces. But I just think that right now we’re simply acting as an emissary for the oil and gas industry with other provinces, rather than focusing on true nation building."
