While you will hear some miners and energy guys complain about First Nations issues the fact is that First Nations people simply want a fair share of the economic activity on their lands.

Even before the recent events in Saudi, oil prices have been rising and the Brent oil price just broke $60 a barrel for the first time since 2015. Positioning to take advantage of the firming oil price is challenging. Especially with the uncertainty which surrounds both heavy oil plays and fracking.
