Some 40K people marched on the U.S. capital over the weekend to protest the Keystone XL (TRP) pipeline project, whose rejection could cause a deep and lasting rift with the U.S. But perhaps Canada is not such a benign trading partner, according to Huffington Post's Raymond Learsy, who says Alberta’s government has given "generous donations to Islamists with close connections to Hamas."

    I have seen reports of 20K and now 40K. The last time they marched, they reported high numbers as well but my understanding is that the number was closer to 5K.

    The 40K people probably got there with gasoline derived from oil from the Canadian Tar sands.

    Those scary Canadians!

     

    We all know how radical they really are and who knew they were on our unprotected northern border.

     

    I say we rally to build a gigantic concrete fence on the Alberta border. Seriously who really wants cheaper gas?

     

    FYI, US foreign aid of around $500 million dollars is sent to the Palestinian authority on an annual basis - some of those dollars find their way to "Islamists" and Hamas.

    Wow - talk about disinformation - FYI - the Alberta governement is the most right wing provincial government in Canada - pro oil and resource development, pro Israel, anti- tax etc. The Conservative party has have held sway for 50 years - there is about as much chance of them donating to Islamist as Bin Landen is alive and well and living in a Calgary condo. Shame on you Market Currents - you're supposed to be an unbiased news feed not partisan prattle

    Where does such BS come from? It really is too bad that the media gets away with printing such unfounded and non factual crap and then it gets perpetuated by this forum !.

    The twit that wrote the referenced article is an author and ex or maybe even still does commodity trading. The more controversy he generates, the more money he potentially makes on both of the foregoing endeavours.

    The following article gives a concise and well stated argument in favour of proceeding with the Keystone XL extension.

    It appears to address most issues but is light on the environmental concerns.
