OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government says it is open to more Chinese investment in Alberta’s oilsands, a declaration that marks a reversal of the previous government’s decision to fence off vast oil reserves in the West from foreign state-owned enterprises.
Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr told reporters on a teleconference from China that, “We would welcome more investment from any nation that’s interested in the oilsands.”
In 2012, the previous Conservative government allowed China’s CNOOC Ltd. to buy Calgary-based Nexen but put a halt to further acquisitions by foreign state-owned firms of Canadian natural resources except in “exceptional circumstances.”
Carr, near the end of a five-day trade mission to China, was asked if the Chinese-controlled firms of Sinopec and CNOOC had urged him to ease restrictions on investment.

Chinese icebreakers. And intermodal facilities are back in a big way now. No tine to wait for pipelines.

Ya and it virtually guarantees the pipelines will be built. Because why would foreigners invest in the oil sands if the oil can't effectively be shipped outside of Alberta?

Well, it would still ship to the West coast by train.

They'd make even more with Chinese companies buying Canadian oil sands producers and replacing the Canadian workers with cheap imported Chinese workers.

Trainee bodyguards of the Genghis Security Academy conduct an ambush exercise at an army training ground on the outskirts of Beijing on January 18, 2013. The group are on a commercial training course to become elite bodyguards protecting Chinese firms as they seek ever more resources and contracts worldwide.


From a 2013 news article, plus who knows how many Chinese workers are now working in foreign countries at Chinese owned businesses? I would think probably close to double the below figures -

"As its overseas investments multiply — to about $77 billion last year — so do the number of Chinese working abroad, now estimated to be more than five million."

I also love Chinese workplace safety rules, techniques, PPE and attire, or lack of, especially the wearing of sneakers on large construction projects!

If I was running an oilsands company I'd run tanker trucks down Hwy 1 till BC cried for mercy.
