    The oil isn't staying here. We take the risks they make the money doesn't sound like a great deal.

    Not all the oil would stay "here", but we import 10 million barrels of oil a day. I can't imagine why you think we wouldn't get it, at least some, from Canada given the opportunity.

    Oh look. Pretty much what I was saying;

    "Our job is to build pipelines," TransCanada CEO Russ Girling told Fox News in an interview at his downtown Calgary office building.

    Girling said it's only logical for a pipeline that starts in Alberta to go through the U.S. and end up next to the large refineries on the Gulf Coast.

    "I'm confident that the Keystone XL pipeline is going to get built. The U.S. imports some 10 million barrels a day of oil. It only makes sense for them to get as much as they can from their friendly northern neighbor."

    It has not been blocked btw, it has just been delayed to find a safer route. The state of Nebraska, who's groundwater resources were at risk with the existing route, benefits the most from the delay and rerouting.

    No, I'm the one that voted other. Nebraska benefits the most from allowing more study for a safer route.

    you know, because oil pipelines leak all over the place.

    BP's history is a major pipeline leak every 7 years.
