Delegates attending the Pacific Northwest Economic Region Summit in Calgary were invited to tour Fort McMurray and the Alberta oilsands this week in an effort to “showcase the technology and innovation surrounding [the] oilsands developments first-hand” says Gary Mar, Alberta’s Envoy in Washington, D.C. who led the tour. 

Twelve U.S. legislators were part of the delegation, including Representative Mike Schaufler, D-Oregon, who told reporters that he was “impressed by the technological advancements and the sophisticated pipeline transportation system used to transport oil to the U.S.”  He also stated that he was "more comfortable buying oil from Alberta, which shares similar environmental goals with the U.S., than from foreign sources."
