For those of you worried about the prolonged silence from Alberta's energy war room, it turns out the nine-member staff of Canadian Energy Centre Ltd. are just taking a little breather while they figure out what to do next.

Back when Jason Kenney was running for his present job as premier of Alberta, he promised to create "a fully-staffed, rapid-response war room in government" and vowed it would "issue swift responses to misinformation about Canadian energy."

The not insignificant sum of $30 million a year was committed this purpose, and environmentalists and other opponents of the United Conservative Party's energy policies braced themselves for aggressive push back from feisty government energy warriors.
