Mr. Kenney launched the Canadian Energy Centre Ltd. in Calgary on Wednesday, making good on an election promise to establish an oil industry war room to bolster and counter criticism of the sector.

Mr. Kenney said the CEC will be composed of a rapid response unit to "issue swift responses to misinformation about Canadian energy," an energy literacy unit to create original content about the sector and a research unit to analyse oil industry data targeting investors, researchers and policy makers.

The Premier roundly rejected the suggestion the CEC will be a propaganda arm for the government and oil sector, even though it is already producing its own content.
