Lack of value for Canadian resources
Obviously, as elsewhere in Canada, B.C. residents aren’t too happy with current pump gas prices. And rightly so.
While I can accept the core reason for building a pipeline to Kitimat (environment issues to be resolved), what’s to be shipped out from there brings to mind the overseas shipping of raw logs — a lack of value added employment for Canadians.
Why shouldn’t Alberta have a resident refinery to add value to what is otherwise shipped out as crude oil?
Perhaps that kind of added value could lighten the pain experienced at western gas stations.
