I want the United States to be a world leader on the environment while keeping gasoline prices affordable for Americans.
I understand that we are moving to a lower carbon future, but it will be decades before we see oil demand drop substantially. In the meantime, we should expect producers to extract the oil in the most environmentally friendly and socially responsible way possible.
The U.S. does not have to depend on more oil from OPEC+ countries to keep gasoline prices down. What we can’t produce and use ourselves, we can import from our friendly neighbor to the north, Canada.
Canada can lead the way for the world toward a low carbon energy mix.
In June, the U.S. imported 848,000 barrels of oil per day from Russia, a country that is no friend of the United States.
Importing heavy oil from Canada helps keep costs down for U.S. consumers and has significant environmental benefits.
Canada is a free, liberal democracy with a strong record on human rights, and is a close ally and friend to the United States.
For the sake of the environment and to keep life affordable, I pledge to make it a priority to replace OPEC+ oil imports to the United States with Canadian oil.
