    But President Obama's denial of a permit for a new oil pipeline from Canada to Texas that has been worked on for years has angered many here who claim that the U.S. environmental lobby is harming their livelihoods without scientific basis.

    They even accuse it of illegally assisting Canadian environmental groups and say it's time to scrap plans to sell more oil to America and step up efforts to redirect the pipeline to the Pacific Coast and energy-hungry markets overseas.

    Why would President Obama want to hinder our best source of oil? Makes no sense at all.

    It's not pro-oil Canada. It's pro-oil Harper government. Big difference.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Exactly. I don't know how Obama expects to get reelected with gas prices at $4 per gallon.

    "We" have enough oil in Alberta? You mean Alberta has enough oil in Alberta.

    Re: Pro-oil Canada fights U.S. environmental groups

    It’s easy to figure out

    OIL …. Bad
    Coal……Bad
    High gas prices …. Good

    That’s Obama’s philosophy

    Grant the Alaskan pipeline has been running at 60 of capacity for over 2 decades.. and the last projects by the majors were shut down because of Palin's windfall tax. You have no idea what you are talking about.

    There's little benefit to Americans... and its been explained why.

    Oil companies aren't struggling to survive at all.. They have invested heavily in exploration and drilling, but they aren't going to flood the market with cheap gasoline and go bankrupt...

    By "we," I do mean "we." As in Canadians, because I'm a Canadian.

    It's also my philosophy, too. It's time we look towards the future.
