Dear Friends and Partners,

This year we took our boys to the Remembrance Day laying of the wreath at the City Hall Cenotaph in Edmonton. Both of our fathers fought in World War II. It's a unique topic to explain to 5 and 2 year olds, respectively.

Later at the Prince of Wales Armouries, our sons were able to play interactive games based on the amazing amount of memorabilia on display. Very informative, eye opening and fun for all. We saw an amazing snuff box that looked like this.

While growing up I really didn't stop to reflect much about the war. I found this year was different; maybe because I have kids, maybe because of the world now. Nonetheless it was a great learning experience and a time to pay respect.

Not to be a total downer this newsletter, but with typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines, here is a great link to TRIPLE your giving power if you so choose too.  UNICEF*

*For every dollar donated by individual Canadians to UNICEF Canada from November 9th to December 8th, 2013, the Government of Canada will contribute a dollar up to $100,000. UNICEF’s generous corporate supporters will be matching all donations for Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, excluding the Government of Canada donation match, up to $25,000.

Yedlin: Energy literacy gaps need remedial filling

By Deborah Yedlin, Calgary Herald, November 13th, 2013

In the absence of gatherings such as first ministers meetings, it's become apparent to both provincial and business leaders that if differences are to be solved and a spirit of co-operation achieved to the benefit of the country, it is up to them to make sure it happens.

We have been seeing signs of this in recent months: The strong support shown by New Brunswick premier David Alward for Premier Redford's Canadian Energy Strategy and Ontario's Premier Kathleen Wynne stating while in Calgary several weeks ago, that she recognized the importance of the industry to her province's economy and that it would be hypocritical for her not to support a Canadian energy strategy for that reason.

More recent signs include the framework agreement governing pipelines crossing from Alberta into British Columbia, in return for B.C. supporting the Canadian Energy Strategy initiative and, on Tuesday, a trade mission organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal arrived in Calgary to explore opportunities for collaboration - either in Alberta, in Quebec, or both.   FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE

By Susan Mas, CBC News, November 12th, 2013

"We'd like to see the Keystone XL pipeline built, so would a majority of Americans. I hope that comes to pass because that would very much help us with commodities exports," Flaherty said.  GRAB THIS STORY


B.C.'s Montney natural gas basin estimated to be world class

By Gordon Hoekstra, The Vancouver Sun, November 6th, 2013

VANCOUVER — A joint federal-provincial government report released Wednesday estimates there are huge, greater-than-expected natural gas resources in the important Montney gas basin that straddles British Columbia and Alberta.
The B.C. government claims the Montney estimate more than doubles the amount of natural gas resources in British Columbia, which will help underpin the province’s effort to launch a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export industry to Asia.

The Montney contains 449 trillion cubic feet of natural gas — inferred from geological data — that can be extracted economically, according to the study conducted with the co-operation of the National Energy Board, B.C. Oil and Gas Commission, the Alberta energy regulator and the newly created B.C. Ministry of Natural Gas Development.  READ MORE HERE
