Play • 18 min

Communities near oil and natural gas operations from Fort St. John, B.C. to St. John's, NL, depend on Canada's energy industry as a critical source of jobs and economic opportunity. Recent events like the 2020 oil price crash, COVID-19 pandemic and Keystone XL cancellation have hit rural oil and gas communities especially hard.

Energy Examined host Tracy Larsson speaks with Kelly McTaggart, community engagement advisor at CAPP. She works in these communities, and discusses how they've managed through multiple crises, the key issues they're dealing with, and what's giving some hope for the future.
