Canadian oil company won't stop work in Syria

OTTAWA — Canadian energy giant Suncor will continue to operate in Syria, even as the European Union tightened the economic screws Thursday and a top United Nations official said the country was now in a state of civil war.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is sticking to the position that Suncor should be exempt from Canadian sanctions on theSyrian government Baird told a House of Commons committee Thursday that Suncor could continue its natural gas generation because it creates much-needed electricity for the Syrian people.
"If they ceased activities there, you'd have literally thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of homes without electricity, and that would be bad for the civilian population," Baird told the foreign affairs committee.

Many experts think there are other motives for the company's are rather economic than humanterian becuase of higer energy costs that makes oil companies try and work around EU and U.S sanctions.
