Oil Sands Strong is a grassroots group of Canadians banding together to support our oil sands. Our mission is to fight back against attacks by providing the public with the factual information they need to help make informed decisions about the cause.

Oil and gas have been the lifeblood of the Canadian economy for decades. The country is the world's fourth-largest producer of oil and gas, and the industry contributes significantly to the national GDP. ⠀

The oil and gas sector provides direct and indirect employment to thousands of Canadians and generates billions of dollars in revenue every year.⠀

Canada's vast reserves of oil and gas have also enabled the country to become a major player in the global energy market, providing a reliable source of energy to many countries.

Many families have built their livelihoods around the industry, and it has become an integral part of their cultural identity.⠀

The oil and gas industry also supports a wide range of businesses, from suppliers and service providers to restaurants and retail shops, further contributing to the local economy.

a road trip

When Progressive Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre wore an Oil Sands Strong hoodie while walking with his young daughter in his riding in Carleton, Ontario – and shared the photo to social media – he likely had no idea it would start a fire storm of controversy and spark the idea for a cross-country tour to showcase the positive impact of the oil and gas industry on the lives of Canadians.

The Carleton Federal Liberal Association publicly attacked Poilievre for wearing the hoodie, accusing him of climate change denial and racism. Oil Sands Strong founder Robbie Picard fought back, incensed by the accusation that supporting the oil sands industry, an integral part of the Canadian economy, is intrinsically linked to climate change denial and racism.

From this incident the concept of a cross-country bus tour was formed, one that would stop in Canadian cities to talk with everyday Canadians who are the direct and indirect beneficiaries of oil and gas development. Robbie will be at the helm of this tour, filming the very people who keep our country running, and bringing their stories with him to Ottawa – and to Carleton, the place where the incident that inspired this tour occurred.

Far from dividing Canadians further, Robbie intends this tour to provide an opportunity for Canadians to share their stories of how the oil and gas industry has fueled their lives, giving them opportunity, potential and prosperity. Rolling through Canada, the tour will bring Canadians together under the banner of belief in an industry that both directly and indirectly increases quality of life for all residents of our country.

Coming soon to a town near you: the Oil Sands Strong tour is about to hit the road!
