After deep budget cuts to health, education and more, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's "War Room" has been launched with a budget of $30 million annually, to improve the reputation of Alberta's oil companies.

The stated aim of the Canadian Energy Centre is to combat anti-oil "narratives" with a "rapid-response" unit, an information unit to "help the province take control of its energy story" and a "data and research unit"

When asked about the status of the centre's previously-announced $10 million "litigation fund", the centre's director, former payday loan lobbyist and failed UCP candidate, Tom Olsen declined to comment.
