A U.S. Democratic senator who’s been a thorn in the side of the Biden administration on economic and energy policies visited Alberta’s oilsands April 11 and 12.
“Great to welcome Senate Energy Committee Chair Joe Manchin to Alberta for a two-day visit highlighting the critical role we play in North American energy security,” wrote Alberta Premier Jason Kenney on Twitter on April 11.
“Today we’re showing him the oilsands, home of the world’s 3rd largest proven oil reserves.”
The visit from the West Virginia senator comes as inflation continues to climb in the United States and at a time when countries are reassessing energy policies and dilemmas in the context of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
