I live in B.C. For those who wrote that we get our gas and diesel from Washington state, that is true but the crude oil is shipped to U.S. Refineries by pipeline crossing near Sumas and by rail. All of it coming from Alberta. They just refine it and sell it back to us.
holy ,.,/' the gasoline will go to 2.50 a liter
WHERE IS OUR PRIME MINISTER ON THIS ISSUE? You have a serious issue between two major provinces that can have a direct impact on all of Canada's economy for crying out loud if it escalates.
Why isn't Alberta building it's own massive oil refinery to handle the oil?
Yes, it is not in the best location from which to ship gasoline and the other products, but it is obviously not in a good place to ship the heavy oil from either. Processing the oil in Alberta also dramatically reduces the number of oil spills that will happen shipping the heavy oil out and the processed products back in!
BC and the other provinces may not want the heavy oil shipped over their land and along their coasts, but they do need and use processed products in huge quantities as do the northern US states!
It would be great to eliminate our need for foreign oil and gas completely and create many thousands of jobs!
You don't want our oil, you won't get our oil.
How you loving the NDP and Green BC coalition now?
Time for JT to stop prancing around and get to work. This is s serious matter for the entire Nation. Lower mainland gas price fo regular is already $1.50- bring it on.
So let me get this right. Bc is not okay with a state of the art, highly monitored and highly regulated pipeline that has passed every environmental standard but is ok with clearcutting their forests?
The highest price of gasoline was spotted in Vancouver at 150.9 cents per litre. If supplies were to be cut off, I can only fart at future gas prices in Vancouver.
While we have a serious family feud out in the west, our family head is too busy celebrating women's day with special awards and recognition for being the most girly PM in the history. It's about time he transitions into Justine. The rainbow nation is growing so fast, and they issue membership to everyone who knocks on the closet door.
Should it come to pass, I'm sure all the Nay-sayers in BC will have no problem with Alaskan oil tankers sailing into Vancouver DAILY to deliver oil to BC's Lower Mainland refineries.....Sunni Ways!
