Summary, etc.: Jim Prentice makes a powerful argument for the inadequacy of current Canadian energy policy and asserts a new and forward-looking vision for converting our nation's vast resources into a secure, prosperous and environmentally responsible future that benefits all Canadians. Completed with his friend and colleague Jean-Seastien Rioux shortly before Prentice's unexpected death in October 2016, this is a heartening and inspiring must-read, and a lasting legacy for a man who did so much for Canada.
