Written at the height of the OPEC oil crisis of the 1970s, Canada's Energy Crisis brings into focus issues that remain relevant to Canada's national and international politics today.
Framing the debate with a discussion of the United States' oil strategy as it relates to that country's national security, Laxer analyzes Canada's energy requirements, the state of its largely foreign-owned oil industry, the emergence of a continental energy policy and its implications for Federal-Provincial relations. Concluding with a discussion of the possibilities for development of Western oil sands projects and Northern oil pipelines, Laxer suggests an alternative energy and industrial strategy for Canada, one that counters the continentalist orthodoxy.
Canada's Energy Crisis considers questions of economic development and national independence that remain relevant today.
