In "Protecting Canada from Obama", Ezra makes some interesting comments about the Alberta oil sands. Apparently, he is also writing a book about oil policy. In the article there is also mention of the little town of Bruderheim, where we go to church, proposed starting point of a pipeline to the West coast for shipping to Asia.
The whole area here is in suspended animation to see if the oil sands up-graders will go ahead. Announcements are expected. If they were to be built they would be less than 10 km from my house.
