Under its incorporated name, the Canadian Energy Centre (CEC), the initiative aims to fight against so-called foreign-funded campaigns attacking Alberta's oil and gas industry.

Premier Jason Kenney, alongside Energy Minister Sonya Savage and CEC managing director Tom Olsen, launched the province's energy war room Wednesday morning with an announcement at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT).

The $30-million campaign is just one piece of Alberta's fight back strategy that includes a $2.5-million public inquiry into allegations that foreign-funded interests are denigrating Alberta's oil and gas reputation. It means the province will be directing attacks on the funding sources of non-profit environmental groups like the David Suzuki Foundation.
