Discontent over potential Nexen takeover intensifies
OTTAWA â€“ The potential takeover of Nexen by the Chinese Company CNOOC continues to divide. New Democrats tabled a motion today calling for public consultations to properly inform Canadians, once and for all, of the impact of this transaction.
â€œA growing number of Canadians are opposed to the takeover. A recent survey states that half of business executives oppose the Nexen takeover if there arenâ€™t any real advantages for the country,â€� said Energy and Natural Resources critic Peter Julian, who tabled the motion.
