What this basically means is that any tax break given to any industry, like accelerated depreciation for example, qualifies as a "fossil fuel subsidy". This is a totally dishonest way to characterize the industry.

A fossil fuel subsidy is any government action that lowers the cost of fossil fuel energy production, raises the price received by energy producers or lowers the price paid by energy consumers.

I mean this rabid support can't be for the whole 50 full time jobs it provides after its constructed.
It can't be for the gas prices because it won't effect the prices at the pump at all.
Why do you want a pipeline constructed that puts our land at risk so that a Canadian oil company can pipe their oil across our land so that they can sell it to other countries? Where in all this does your support foster?
