Smelly hippies are probably paid by the railroad and teamster unions. The oil's still going to get moved by some means. I guess they'd rather have random oil spills all over the place via rail or truck. If it was in a pipeline, you'd know within a few yards of where a leak/spill has occurred.

Hippies, Hollywood druggies and drunks also hurt the industry. The good idea fairies are supported by guys like Neil Young (who is also Canadian and an activist) but I doubt they are driving around in a Prius or a volt or taking the train or a bus like Amish do. I am sure they fly(maybe even have their own private jet) and have large SUVs to go to each protest. They have, along with the POTUS and some Native tribes, blocked the pipeline to the USA (Keystone) and blocked the pipeline west to British Columbia and now the Pipeline East. Yes, it goes on rail cars and Canada has to sell it at a discount yet Russia, Iran, Venezuela and other OPEC members who don't follow Kyoto and other agreements (like Iraq) sell the oil while the Good idea environmental fairies block progress. This hurts national security and costs people jobs.

I read the paper when I am on a lunch break. The nationalpost.com paper has commentary about Canada and the USA that I share here on RP because the 2nd and 3rd order of affects of Keystone XL pipleline being stopped and the Saudi and Iran flooding of the oil market has shut down oil production in the USA and Canada. Our province had a 5 billion dollars rainy-day fund 2 years ago. Now its 11 billion in the red. It is a deep receession here and a deep depression in the oil sands area.
I also wanted to show others stuff that happens here that I feel should not be allowed to be there. One was the story about not giving Fs to students. https://www.rallypoint.com/shared-links/alberta-teacher-fired-for-giving-students-zeros-won-t-get-job-back

I can't believe that. If a student isn't doing anything,then they SHOULD get a zero. This trend of punishing teachers for doing their jobs will lead to the collapse of the western educational system (not that it needed any help).

Interesting theory, Major. You may not be far off of the mark.

This loss of professional jobs is terrible,and it's bad when politico-environmental extremism costs so many the ability to support their families.

Col (Join to see) - yes sir, I stayed up since a US FAO in Turkey here in RP said my story about Russian TV story of Russians moving into Incirlik was not really a story. I am always cautious about RT but this story is believeable.

Col (Join to see) - Guys with PHDs like you out of a job..really sad! We have houses forclosing everywhere and those oil professionals selling their new cars and boats. They would work for about 2 weeks then get 5 days off and live here in Edmonton and then go back up north to Fort McMurray and they just had a fire a few months back shutting down production and destroying part of the city. 80k displaced persons came to Edmonton for a few weeks until the town was reopened.
