In “Facts and Statistics” Government of Alberta (2018) presents the facts and statistics about three different aspects of Alberta Oil sands, economic, geographic and environmental aspects. First, this sector provides the major source of employment and key contributor to province’s revenue as Alberta is overwhelming with the largest source of bitumen; however, the oil sands industry got capital investment. Second, the oil sands are located in three areas which covers most of the part of northern Alberta which have controlling boundaries decided by Alberta Energy Regulator. Finally, when it comes to environmental aspect, the Government of Alberta imposed rules to solve environmental issues such as reducing of greenhouse gas emission, recycling the water used, cultivating minable areas of landmark for oil because of its enormous negative impacts on the environment.This article is beneficial to readers to get the statics and information about Alberta oil sands in many aspects, but any of them is not well explained with all the details. It would be useful to acquire basic idea about Alberta oil sands but due to the missing data this seems difficult to use this as a direct resource.In this article Cattaneo (2017, September 28) underlines the predictions about future of the oil sands in Canada, as some believes that there will be no existence of this sector while others see this sector as a hub of innovation. There are many companies working on solving environmental issues such as the decreasing green house gas emission, reducing watersheds and landscape impacts. However, the oil sands sector requires huge investment and continuous improvement, the governments also committed to fund this innovative technology. Despite this, there are some treats such as transportation of produced oil and regional impacts, which resulted into a slow down growth of the oil sands and directly affected to the labours. The author continues to say that the oil sands can cuts the coast of oil in market and will be the major contributor to the Canada’s overall growth as the global and reliable source of the fuel.This article could be proven useful for them who wish to acquire information but the history and contribution of the oil sands to the Country’s growth. The article would be useful for a report about the environmental impacts or economic benefits of the Alberta Oil Sands; however, it does not explore implications of economic growth on Canadian.According to Jordaan (2012, February 24), the rapid growth of Oil sands industry results into the increasing concern about a range of environmental impacts such as land and water resources compared to other transportation fuel production. The technologies used for getting bitumen from Oil sands are surface mining which results in the removal of the huge tracks of land and situ recovery which required infrastructure for natural gas production. These technologies affect the local environment, and the loss of diverse species can be viewed at large scale. The author also depicts that, compared to other resources this development has significant influence in many aspects such as global warming potential and the time required for reclamation of the local ecosystem. The use of water in this industry have not only an abundance of water availability but also have huge impact on a population of fish habitat and other organisms due to contaminated water produced by this industry. Although, landscape impacts can be reduced by proper access management and landscape management whereas watersheds can be managed by restricting water usage and monitoring water quality by the governments.Jordaan (2012) explained very well about the patches of Alberta’s oil sands in environmental aspect which can be fruitful for researcher to be familiar with these negative impacts. This might be beneficial for a report about the effects of oil sands on environment although there is no proper solution given to solve this problem.According to Lemphers and Woynillowics (2012, May), the rapid growth of the oil sands has directly associated with the Canada’s overall economic development and the increasing value of dollar value relative to U.S dollar. The governments have also encouraged this increased export of oil, and took significant steps to reduce negative impacts created by this sector. Despite the relatively fared economy not only Alberta but also the central Canada feels challenging to adjust to the overheated economy, and in regional imbalance. This will directly affect competitiveness between industries and importing good for companies. As a result, the federal government is taking responsibilities to improve their policies to get balance between economy and reginal impacts such as saving funds for future and improving their tax treatment system.This source could be helpful for readers to know about the impacts of the oil sands industry on the country’s economy and the local people’s life. This serves as a resource for a report about economic impacts of the oil sands on the Canada but there could be more details included on the economic investment required for this type of oil production.In this article, McCarthy (2017) states that the oil sands have faced many challenges although it continued to grow as an important contributor to the Country’s economy. This industry met many economic, political and technological problems such as lowering the cost and reducing the environmental impacts. The oil sand producers escaped into climate concerns because of CO2 emission from the oil sand, the governments around the world have defended this industry. When it comes to economics this industry already cited as most expensive sector and added to this getting clean and lighter crude from produce oil coasts money. Despite this the oil sands have tried to improve the technology by investing on research to reduce the negative effects on the environment and reducing the production coast.This article is beneficial to readers who wish to acquire information about the environmental effects and economic importance of the oil sands for Canadians. The article would be useful for a report about early stage of economic investment for the Alberta Oil Sands; unfortunately, it could not give enough information about all the impacts on the environment.
