We would just increase the price of maple syrup, that will teach those Americans.

No matter how we slice it, demand for oil from Western countries will likely drop as they begin to adopt green/alternative technology (especially by 2035 as cited in the article), so we might as well get ahead of the curve and build pipelines to our coast(s) - let's ship it to those who will want it.

Very good point. If U.S. demand drops and we have no infrastructure to ship overseas, we could be out of options.

Not really. As long as we have the oil, China and India will want it and be willing to invest money in our infrastructure to get it. So I wouldn't be to worried if the US slows down on our consumption.

Long term, it's in Canada's interests to build infrastructure to supply developing nations with oil, but for the next 20 years, we should be selling to the United States, who no doubt wants our oil, and the Keystone pipeline would have been the safest, most efficient option to do that.

I agree on Keystone. Let's hope it goes through.

Keystone oil is for export out of North America via Gulf Coast oil terminals. It has nothing to do with US or Canadian domestic consumption.

If U.S. demand drops off to nothing, it will still only be temporary and, just maybe, our children and grandchildren MIGHT have something left to sell to earn a living. Eventually every last drop of petroleum that can be extracted will be ... if not for energy, then for materials.
