David Yager: Political attacks on North America’s oil producers put votes before security

What is the long-term future of a society that attacks its own economic foundation for political gain? 
North Americans must ask this question. 
By putting politics first, some politicians in both the U.S. in Canada undermine North America’s core strengths of energy security, economic competitiveness and continued prosperity.  
Many elections have been won on the future of energy. Fossil fuels are bad. Renewables are good. Financial support for oil, gas or coal producers was branded as a crime against the future of civilization. Those who asked questions were labelled climate change deniers. 
But that was so 2021. Everything has changed.
