Jim Carter, Syncrude President and Chief Operating Officer stated, “It’s tremendous for Syncrude to be recognized in this way, because it is something we have worked hard at for the last 27 years. The important thing for us is how much has been gained by both Syncrude and our Aboriginal neighbors from our commitment to working together.”
