Resource give-aways continue...
Welcome aboard Alberta!

And you thought that the 1985 signing of the Atlantic Accord was bad, and that it was a bad thing for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to be upset over our resources sailing away!

There's a pipeline construction project about to start in Alberta that will see almost 900,000 barrels of crude oil processed in Texas rather than inside Alberta. In context, making our offshore oil production a mere pittance against what Alberta has to export!

It's called the Keystone Project...

Canadians should be going off their heads,but there's hardly a whimper, except from the likes of some unions who are warning about the deal that would ship tons of bitumen to Texas for refining. It's just another classic example of crude oil resources going south of the border to power Uncle Sam's economy, rather than keep our own economy powered with secondary processing jobs.

The sale of this country's resources continues, and as reguards to resource giveaways, we at "gas and oil" would like to welcome aboard Alberta as being partly responsible for adding to Canada's energy shortages in the future!

On that "sour" note, I'll be in touch tomorrow evening on the trend in price changes for this coming Thursday!
