Welcome to our Program David,
Last week the Honorable Joe Oliver ,completed a successful visit to the United States to promote our mutual interest in jobs and the economy, through the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. The responsible development of Canada’s energy resources, including the oil sands, is critical to the Canadian economy and ongoing funding for essential social programs like health and education.
But NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair is also traveling to the U.S. to meet with American officials in Washington. But what message will he bring? Will he leave politics at the border and join the Conservative Government in supporting Canadian jobs, exports, diversified markets and the Keystone XL pipeline?
David The NDP is committed to ‘renegotiating’ NAFTA, and has opposed almost every other trade agreement. Still, with tens of thousands of Canadian jobs at stake, this would be the time for Mr. Mulcair to finally get behind Canada’s national interest?
Why is there such a huge difference between the bitumen coming out the ground of Alberta and the price of west texas crude oil? 35$ difference
The American Economy has been soft but is turning around, but there has been a glut of american oil because they themselves are pumping out more domestically. Shouldn't we be selling our bitumen to overseas customer , to diversify in case USA goes into a recession?
Protestors marched in Washington to protest the Keystone XL pipeline
