Varcoe: Crude prices soar after Saudi oil attack, but Canada is 'missing the boat'.
Canada’s oil sector has needed a jump-start for much of 2019, suffering from listless investor interest and sluggish commodity prices.

It didn’t take long for markets to react, with U.S. benchmark oil prices surging by more than 14 per cent on Monday. In Canada, energy stocks also took off.
