Launched with great fanfare last week, the "war room" is now called the Canadian Energy Centre. At this point it consists of a website with government approved articles, such as the one that cites natural gas as an answer to the challenge of climate change. Pro-oil industry advertising campaigns are also in the works.

There was no mention of harassing specific environmental groups, even though Kenney had slammed several when he announced a year ago his intention to go to war with environmentalists who were spreading lies (according to him) about Alberta's oil and gas industry.

Instead, according to CEC director, Tom Olsen, a former United Conservative Party operative and defeated candidate, it's all about telling everyone that "Canada's oil and gas makes the world a better place."
