    You're a spin master, for sure. Subsidies and nationalization of industry are two different things. You do know that, right?

    Are you opposed to farm subsidies, as well? We don't need food, either, I reckon.

    Estimated U.S. oil shale reserves total an astonishing 1.5 trillion barrels of oil - or more than five times the
    stated reserves of Saudi Arabia.

    So, how much is in that Canadian sand box?

    If you don't know how artificially reducing the cost of exploration doesnt effect market prices then you shouldn't be in this discussion.

    Oh ok, so you are cool with the government subsidizing profitable industries and telling them what to invest in.


    Are you opposed to farm subsidies, as well?
    Yes I am.

    Exploration = overhead

    Reducing overhead = reducing price of product or increasing profit margin = manipulation
