You'll probably hear the word "Canada" at least once during a speech at this week's Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
Don't get too excited though: it's not that the Republicans love Canada as much as they yearn for our oil.
Last week, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney introduced a central plank of his campaign: a North American energy plan which would make North America energy independent by 2020.
According to the Financial Post, the ambitious strategy involves a partnership between the U.S., Canada and Mexico and the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to carry oil from Alberta's oil sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
You can expect Romney to raise the idea of continental energy independence during his address later this week.

Canadian oil is also a theme being discussed on the convention floor; according to the Globe and Mail, Keystone is a key topic among delegates.
"The American Petroleum Institute is an official "host committee sponsor" at the Republican convention and the lobby group is actively talking up Keystone and other oil industry projects in seminars and private receptions," Konrad Yakabuski wrote from Tampa.
"It is holding a closing night party here on Thursday, following Mr. Romney's speech, for a thousand invited guests. The Zac Brown Band will provide the entertainment."
Canadians at the Republican Convention:
The head of the Canadian branch of Republicans Abroad, says that not a lot of Canadians will be attending this year's convention.
"I have been to the conventions in the past but I'm not sure how many people are going this year because of the storms," Mark Feigenbaum told Yahoo! Canada News.
Gary Doer, Canada's ambassador to the U.S., is attending.
In an interview with CBC's Evan Solomon, he appropriately remained politically neutral.
"I'll be at both conventions...what we try to do is keep people informed of the merit of Canada's relationship with the United States," he said.
"We track all the speeches and promises [with regards to Canada] made by the president and his administration. and we've tracked everything said by Governor Romney and his vice presidential nominee."

While the Facebook page of at least one Conservative party staffer indicates that he is attending the convention, the Tories didn't respond to multiple emails asking if they had sent any 'official' observers.
