The Roughneck

The Roughneck
The Roughneck 
was founded in 1952 as the voice of the Canadian oil community. The magazine reports on the people and events of that community - both past and present - that have made the oilpatch in Canada what it is today.

The Roughneck analyzes political events that affect the industry and profiles people and businesses that are a part of it. The magazine covers the news that others miss because it is a part of the industry about which it writes. Opinions expressed herein are those of the staff writers and may not reflect those of the magazine's readers or advertisers.
