Alberta is working closely with Ottawa on a federal aid package for the oil patch and hopes to have an announcement "very shortly," said Alberta Energy Minister Sonya Savage, giving a keynote speech this morning at the 2020 Scotiabank CAPP Energy Symposium. (The event is co-held with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers -- CAPP -- and is running in a virtual-only format today and tomorrow.) Her comments echoed the "hours, potentially days" promise made by Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau when discussing the same topic on March 25, a full 13 days ago, a fact that was not lost on Ms. Savage.
