While I admit I was fully unaware of Manitoba's oil industry (Ontario has one as well, though even smaller) and it definitely does have the potential to generate some economic benefit, I am not sure it worthy of the praise the previous poster bestowed upon it.
Manitoba's oil reserves sit at 8 million cubic metres as of December 2010 according to a government report that can be found
. That is more than Ontario (2 million), Quebec (0), and the Maritimes (0) but is less than half/almost a third of B.C. and Saskatchewan (19 and 21 million respectively) and not even on the radar when compared to Alberta (172 million) and Newfoundland's Grand Banks (146).
