Brian Zinchuk: Some suggestions for the Saskatchewan government to stimulate activity in the province’s oilpatch

As I noted on Sept. 28, there’s a substantial amount of concern in the oilpatch about the lack of activity despite high oil prices. As one person told me, “When oil was $40 a couple years ago I was optimistic that a price recovery would lead to increased activity in our region. Now that we’re struggling to keep a double digit rig count in SE Sask with $94 oil ($127 CAD) it’s tough to stay optimistic.”
