The Conservative government is spending $40-million this year to advertise Canada’s natural resource sector – principally oil and gas – at home and abroad.

Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver revealed the figure Wednesday as his department seeks another $12.9-million to augment an international campaign designed to portray Canada as a stable and environmentally responsible source of energy.
