Going green: Does Ontario's energy shift have the power to sustain itself?
The Globe and Mail
In a huge factory on the outskirts of Tillsonburg, the transformation of Ontario’s manufacturing economy is under way. Here, in what was once a Magna International auto parts plant, German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG is building giant wind turbine blades, massive components formed from fibreglass, epoxy and balsa wood that are half the length of a football field. About 350 workers mould, bake and trim the huge blades, which are shipped to wind farms throughout Southern Ontario.

Energy Now
Finance Minister Mike de Jong says the potential economic returns from British Columbia's first liquefied-natural-gas deal will outweigh any targeted-tax tradeoffs included in a 25-year deal he expects to table in the legislature.

Rethinking the role of the National Energy Board
Alberta Oil
It wasn't exactly an auspicious start. After a tumultuous seven-year term at the head of the National Energy Board, Gaétan Caron announced that a career public servant named Peter Watson would be replacing him. The NEB's reputation has come under heavy fire of late.

Refracking is the hot new craze sweeping across shale oil fields
Energy Now
The technique itself is nothing new. Oil crews across the world have been schooled on its simple principles for generations: Identify aging, low-output wells and hit them with a blast of sand and water to bolster the flow of crude. The idea originated somewhere in the plains of the American Midwest, back in the 1950s.
