Hard to imagine. Such squandering of natural gifts.
It’s not a lot different, when you think of it, for Canada’s natural resources. And squandering, in effect, is what we’re doing today with the economic potential of our oil resources. They are effectively landlocked due to the inability to get the barrels to seaport and a broader market. Alberta’s oil is locked to North America, especially U.S. distribution, which cuts the per-barrel price by about $14, as of August, when Alberta crude was selling for about $31 a barrel.
