    "The Alberta government has turned up the volume in recent weeks about the hole the oilsands oil discount is eating in the province's bottom line. Premier Alison Redford has warned of a $6-billion revenue shortfall this year because oilsands crude has been fetching a significantly lower price than the U.S. and global benchmarks."

    "CALGARY - A research paper is reinforcing the idea that Canada's resource industry is at risk of being left behind internationally if it doesn't find a way to get oil to receptive markets in the Pacific Rim."

    Well, I will say this, the num-nums that wen all gung ho on the frack didn't set up a delivery system FIRST, or make inter-Provincial agreements for one which would have only been common sense.

    If I'm going to grow apples and truck them to the US, it would appear logical that I wouldn't wait until I picked them before trying to figure out how I was going to get them there.
