And EnCana makes two...

Oil giant EnCana is boosting exploratory spending in 2008.

They are also cutting back in Alberta, precisely as they vowed to do when the Stelmach royalty scheme changes were announced. Liberal politicians and bloggers and news anchors (Gord Steinke, for example) kept referring to them as "threats". Even on 630 CHED this morning the news was announced as "EnCana is making good on their threat".

Can we please stop calling this a threat? The oil companies at no point lied to us or deceived us. Can the Stelmach government say the same?
