Former Refugee in Fort McMurray Facing New Fears

Fedhasa Hundessa was a refugee when he came to Canada in 2007. Working at Fort McMurray provided him with a stable life, education, and a home. After the oil downturn in August, Hundessa considers himself lucky to be employed, but is worried about the instability of his future. Gary Leach, president of the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada said the oil and gas company is moving into “survivor mode” while Alberta’s Finance Minister, Joe Ceci is “focused on diversifying the economy by investing in infrastructure and building on our strengths and expertise in the oil and gas sector.”
