    If it reduces the price on the world market wouldn't do the same thing if it was exported from BC?

    It would create jobs to construct the pipeline, but very few permanent jobs would be created.

    As per the States' Righters, shouldn't each of the RED-wing states like Nebraska vote on having the Keystone come through their state?
    Not that they would be worried about the Platte River complex and the Ogallalla Aquifer.

    Canada hasn't exactly been the poster boy for the environment, and now they want to cross Maine from Quebec to Portland, ME.
    They could give a **** about our water .

    The oil was always intended to go to china.
    Gasoline price increases are estimated at a quarter/gallon with Keystoned.
    Canada wouldn't dare build a pipeline through its greatest natural resources, its Rocky Mountains.
    This is why they're pushing for Portland, ME and the idiot LePage is on board .

    Sure if it cost the same. My guess is it cost more to export it into the world market from BC and of course it means no maintenance, no repair, monitoring, or shipping jobs for the US. So we all end up paying a little more and fewer people work - the true Liberal way!

    Keystone would also be a bargaining chip throughout this year with legislative matters .

    Actually the highly toxic chemical witch's brew that moves the tar through the pipeline doesn't help this country in any strategic way. 'Clean crude' is being diverted to canadian refineries so our refineries can be converted to handle the hot mess.

    Given the big spike in domestic oil production the need for conversion to handle tar in gasoline production is absurd. let China deal with that crap. (if that sludge was worth half a bucket of warm spit the world would be bidding for it.... on the world stage there is only crickets.) Let Canada 'threaten' to sell the poison elsewhere, let them pipe it 100% across THEIR country and handle it on their coastline.

    Win/win for us... so simple even a CON can do it.... ok, maybe not...
