When President Obama makes his February decision on the Keystone XL pipeline deal, which Republicans forced as part of the last hostage crisis, he might want to note that a similar pipeline is getting some bad press up in America’s Hat:
Environmentalists accused Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government of taking the side of big oil over ordinary citizens after the Conservatives said foreign-funded “radicals” were distorting a pipeline approval process.
Blaming “outside agitators” is usually a sign of weakness, so I wonder if the Harper government is going to have trouble pushing through a pipeline that goes across the Rockies and the BC coast to transport crude oil to supertankers. Canadians can tolerate abominations like dollar coins and socialist medicine, so if they can’t put up with a pipeline, why should God-fearing real Americans?
