||Surely in a modern society like ours of the 21st century, we are capable of developing and using effectively other means of energy production. In fact, there are many alternative energy sources we have but they have been relegated to the back burner by the big oil monopolies and the governments at their service as they stand to lose too much if the world's dependence on oil is challenged. The MLPC calls for a new direction for the economy, one that is human-centered. There is no doubt that the kind of conscious planning that is required for a new and modern economy would include planning around sustainable energy sources. It would also include the development of a Canada energy policy that is truly sovereign and designed for the well-being of Canadians. Currently, Canadian energy resources are at the service of the U.S. Empire as part of the ongoing annexation of Canada into the United States of North American monopolies. This is unconscionable and a major obstacle for our efforts as Canadians to organize our society in a matter that serves our interests. In sum, the issue of oil production can only be sorted out by the Canadian people as part of the ongoing work to realize a new direction for the economy.
