Crude economy

Why can't Canadian refineries be used for Alberta tar sands?

While reading an article by Robyn Allen on the Gateway project and how its cost will affect the economy, I wondered why there was so much concern of a two-to-three-dollar raise in crude prices.

Remember, this is two-to-three-per cent only. I remember the fluctuations of 10 to 20 per cent last year with everything all over the board.

I am wondering if there is a plan to go for the cheapest possible pipeline to increase profits and risk our environment. How will that affect local crude costs or are we already in an agreement that states the price of crude delivered to a tanker in Kitimat must be the same as sold to local refineries?

Have we already sold any options for tiered pricing where Canadian Refineries get a preferred rate over foreign sales?
