Calgary Herald: NDP Leader Mulcair says oilsands access should be opened up, but not with new pipeline Yes. A better/cleaner/safer plan all around would be to process this stuff in Canada (preferably closer to the source IMHO) and then ship out the ref…
They have tried everything to fix the oil spill. Garbage. Giant containment units. Golf balls. They even (briefly, I hope) considered nuking it. There was one solution they hadn’t considered, though.
