What's all the fuss... Obama is leading in the polls and when he wins he is cutting off all shipments of Alberta's DIRTY Oil to the United States.

It will take years to build to a pipeline a Pacific port, so Alberta is finished. What's going to hurt the most is that transfer payments sent to Ontario will be cut and road, social programs will have to be cut.

That's right... start paying for your health care Ontario.

Obama's fight against 'dirty oil' could hurt oil sands

This will hurt Canada, not just Alberta. Housing prices across Canada will be effected. That's why I think it's funny as hell when I hear a Canadian saying how much they want Obama to win... they will be the same screw ball crying when they have no job, or they experience what the U.S. is dealing with regarding housing prices and investments.

Where do they come up with this shit?

I mean,I know the east hate's Alberta but come on,this is getting ridiculous.

Quote:
It warns that the refineries will be using the Great Lakes “as a cheap supply” source for their copious water needs and the area's air “as a pollution dump.”



Maybe we'll just pave over everything east of Saskatchewan and make the residents work in the tarsands and live in tent camps too. :roll:

I think the author failed geography.

All of Alberta's fresh water empties into the Arctic Ocean or Hudson's Bay. None of it comes from, or empties into the Great Lakes.

And you can drink that water right out of the lake(hudsons bay).

You can do that in most Alberta lakes, Zig. I wouldn't do it so much in the south, but West and North West of Edmonton I'd have no problem with it.

Mildred Lake, OTOH, :)

I drank out of the lakes and rivers of Ontario up north when tree planting although they warned us about giardia. Giardia ian't a pollution problem though so it doesn't affect water quality though.

I made myself immune to its affects. As a student I subsisted on beer, jolt cola, taco bell and whatever hamburger special was being advertised.

That and pizza by the truckload. :D
