FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                        

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, and Deputy Shadow Minister for Natural Resources (Forestry and Mining) is pleased to inform constituents that the government will be investing $6 million in our Natural Resources sector.

The investment is being made as part of the Canadian Emissions Reduction Innovation Network (CERIN) initiative, which aims at accelerating the development of technologies that reduce methane emissions in the oil and gas sector.

These investments will inform protocols and standards for the detection and mitigation of methane emissions. This investment builds on private sector investments and innovations that have transformed Canada’s oil and gas sector into one of the cleanest and most ethical in the world.
