    We could if we aren't careful. We'll be careful. The 2.5 million miles of pipelines in the country are far less a hazard than driving your car. The danger of a pipeline failure is roughly the same as the danger posed by flying a commercial airliner, and usually less catastrophic in terms of human life.

Why should we take all the risks of transporting it and the pollution from refining it when it is purely for Canada's and private enterprise profit? The Canadian people have decided the risk is not worth it to them and refuse to build a refinery to handle the sticky oil or even a pipeline to the West coast so they could export it themselves. Why do you think that is?
    We want to bring in raw material, and export finished product, Oil refining is one of the few manufacturing
    sectors the US still has.
    We already have refineries and expertise that can handle the heavy crude, Canada did not.
    Don't knock private enterprise profit too much, it is where all the money in this country comes from.

    The west coast pipeline, was just political posturing, I do not think the Canadians would ever
    accept a pipeline through Banff or Jasper.

    I was talking about underground pipelines - not oil rigs in the sea. Let me know exactly what sea or ocean the Keystone pipeline crosses. I've been through middle of the country, and I must have missed it somehow.

    so different. commitment given that such a spill will not occur - until it does
    try this one

    as soon as the keystone pipeline results in a massive environmental calamity, you know your side will castigate Obama, insisting he let it happen

    You forgot the option of "I'm not opposed to pipelines in general, but I don't like Keystone in particular." The Keystone project is just oil companies figuring out the easiest way to export oil to China.

    There will always be accidents in anything man attempts. It almost sounds as if you're salivating over an accident that hasn't happened. Again, there are accidents that happen with pipelines, cars, trains, planes, ships, power grids, production, construction, medical care - anything humans attempt. With 2.5 million miles of underground pipe, we're doing pretty well all in all in the disaster department. I'm not looking to blame anybody for attempting to do something. I'm a little miffed with those who don't try.
