CHARLIE FISCHER is a retired energy executive with fire in the belly. As former President & CEO of Nexen Inc., he led the company during a pivotal time in the development of the Alberta oil sands.
In 2013, Nexen was sold to China’s CNOOC (China National Offshore Oil Corporation).
In July of this year, Don Hill and I spoke with Charlie. He bristled at the thought of what’s happened to the investment climate in Alberta. He’s deeply concerned business and foreign capital is taking a pass on the province and Canada.
Making Alberta an attractive place for investment is one of PETER’S PRINCIPLES.
Here’s an excerpt from our conversation with CHARLIE FISCHER:
WE’VE INTERVIEWED MANY ALBERTANS who worked with, or were influenced by Premier Peter Lougheed & his exceptional team; people like CHARLIE FISCHER who have insights on Lougheed’s leadership principles. We’ll continue to post podcasts and even chapters of our book–PETER’S PRINCIPLES— in the weeks to come.

Hopefully there is more to invest in Alberta than oil & gas. That’s what the rest of the world is doing. Investing in the ‘next’ economy. Without those opportunities being created here it will be not just China but everyone wary of Alberta. But for very different reasons- Lack of vision for the future.
