Alberta promotes oilsand to Japan as energy resource

In an interview with a Japanese industrial paper, Alberta Minister of Employment, Immigration and Industry Iris Evans emphasized that Alberta oilsand was an important investment opportunity for Japan because Japan is highly dependent on foreign energy. She explained Canada’s own oilsand investments and its efforts to alleviate the personnel shortage in Alberta including the shortage of doctors and nurses.
