Ship the oil and wait to run out

Oil is a non-renewable resource and Canada will find a need for it in future

Both levels of the Conservative governments, who are hell bent to push these pipelines through at all costs, seem to have overlooked one important fact in my view.

This fact is that if you build enough pipelines to give your petroleum resources away to foreign interests you are going to run out of fuel for Canadians decades earlier than you should  have.

Then all of your honkin’ big diesels — your new quads-your skidoos-your new ski boats, and your big fancy motorhomes simply become very expensive lawn ornaments. Some real geniuses among the Conservatives out there!
