Been away for a while. Has everyone realized that the anti-pipeline squawk on Canadian oil has been funded by American businessmen who have two major agendas:1) ensure Canadian oil doesn't make it to tidewater (because Canada would get more for it overseas)2) keep Canadian oil landlocked and therefore piped to US refineries. Because the oil can't get to tidewater and therefore no competition, the US gets Canadian oil at a discount. All the good people who have legitimate concerns are merely pawns in a high finance poker game. They have done a great job, killing pipelines to Eastern Canada (for some reason it's "safer" to float huge tankers from the Middle East to those refineries. I guess it's better to fund regimes with atrocious human rights records) and the Northern Gateway (Trudeau killed that one despite it already receiving approval).
It's egg rollin' thick and heavy...all the past we carry... Oh, I could be new...you underestimate me..
Electric cars are not going to save the planet.oil is not going anywhere....
Lol it's been a hoot all right. I'll disappear for a year or two now and come back when the pipeline is almost finished and chat then!
Since Keystone and two Canadian pipelines (gateway, Energy East) were stalled by big money to support US oil interests, the US has built 19000 miles of oil pipelines! While everyone has been squabbling over our attempt to earn what we deserve from our resource, your government has quietly went about building a whack of pipelines and NOONE is protesting them.you wonder why some Canadians are pissed off? Some people have mortgages and families just like you. The crosshairs are pointed squarely on thEoilsands and quite respectfully sir, it is unwarranted. These protests are are hurting good, law abiding, hard working Albertans. We support the move to renewable energy, but it can't happen overnight. Thwarting three pipelines won't change the world.
The U.S. State Department must conduct a new environmental review for the Keystone XL
crude pipeline, a federal judge ruled, dealing a blow to a project
supported by President Donald Trump in his first few days in office.
District Court Judge Brian Morris in Montana sided with indigenous and
environmental groups in ruling Wednesday that a revised Keystone route
is “interdependent” on the larger pipeline project and requires one
