When it was just the Husband and I, before the two little munchkins came along, we weren't much into using heat and air conditioning in our house. The Husband is perfectly fine regulating his own temperature but I struggled and would spend many nights with a fan pointed on me during the summer and extra layers of clothes during the winter to sleep in.


Once the boys came along, the sweating and freezing stopped. I could handle being cold (and wearing seven layers) but the boys needed some extra heat during the winter months to help keep them warm, especially since their birthday both fall during cooler months.

No need for hats inside when the heat is on. He just prefers looking good!

There's something to be said for coming home to a nice warm house after a cool day apple picking or a freezing cold commute.


We use petroleum every single day and it's essential to our quality of life. It's the gasoline in our trucks, cars, buses, planes, trains or boats that get us to where we are going each day. There are also many other products that are made from crude oil including heat, clothes, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, building materials and different types of plastics.

The key to this petroleum and crude oil is Canada's Oil Sands.  Canada has the third largest oil reserve in the world with the majority of them being in the oil sands found in three areas within Alberta and Saskatchewan. There is also the potential of the creation of 800, 000 jobs in the next 25 years. The future of Canada's energy lies in the oil sands as a secure source to meet the ever growing demand.
