Keystone pipeline delayed until 2013
The Harper administration and the Alberta Premier are crying the blues.
And they are suggesting that Canada can sell the un-refined oil to China.
Are they braindead. Canada has it's own refineries. Why would they want to pipe it to Texas to have it refined there.
It seems to me that the Harper administration and the Alberta Premier are more concerned with temporary jobs in the US building the pipeline than they are concerned about permanent jobs for Canadians. If it was refined in Canada it would supply permanent Canadian jobs in the refinery as well as permanent Canadian jobs to truck it to Texas after it was refined.
Take the vote on the side of the web site above. It's already showing 54.21% in favour of Alberta processing the bitumen here in Canada.
