DELTA, British Columbia Jan 8 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Thursday said the country's energy industry was resilient and would survive the stresses caused by plunging crude oil prices.

Harper also told reporters that while lower prices would have a significant impact on oil-producing provinces, consumers would enjoy the benefit. (Reporting by Julie Gordon; Writing by David Ljunggren; Editing by Chris Reese)
