    A bunch of people in state of Washington don't want it either. Look back at the news media when the Burnaby mountain protest was taking place a few months ago. There were protests in Washington at the same time.

    "*(BTW, the way you phrased your comment, it could be interpreted TRP is only the cleanest shirt in a basket of dirty laundry.)*"

    Who is to say the allegations are factual until they are investigated. The allegations may be malicious and false. Or, they may be extremely minor in nature and of virtually no consequence. Corporations are not anymore dishonest or irresponsible than individuals. To say otherwise is to say corporations intentionally want to harm that which is in their interest to protect.

    If that's the case I wonder how it is that I have just been reading both Reuters and NYT on the internet in Hong Kong?

  • Obama: "Extraordinarily dirty" oil extraction is reason for Keystone concern [View news story]
    Pipelines are built to supply a market that wants the product. They are not built on spec. When enough demand is evident the construction of a pipeline is then considered.

    Is it possible that another individual who was there could have a different interpretation and understanding of the hearing results than you?

  • Alberta pitching oil pipeline to Alaska, premier says [View news story]
    A pipeline above ground is subject to a lot more temperature variations than a buried line. For that and other reasons buried has advantages if feasible.

  • Retailers threatened by West Coast port slowdown [View news story]
    Wasn't there a similar problem last fall with ports on the west coast?
    Lulu simply rerouted US bound shipments through the Vancouver BC. port and overland from there did they not? Couldn't people in the US do the same? Of course if shipments are already enroute that would preclude doing so but for those not already enroute----.

  • Dividend Investment Opportunity Outside The U.S: The Bank Of Nova Scotia [View article]
    I believe emotion based on fear of the unknown is a factor in the prices. I see no reason to panic. In fact I believe now to be an opportune time to buy. I have added to my positions recently. The conservative well managed banking industry in Canada has proven itself in the past and I believe will continue.

  • Canada's oil sands operators to keep production high, seeing long-term value [View news story]
    Anyone remember the panic about gasoline shortage in the early 1970's?
    How long did that last and what were people saying about its cause and effect?
    Market panic is a benefit to the investor. Just have to figure out where to look for best buys.

  • White House says Obama would veto Keystone pipeline bill [View news story]
    A pipeline is simply a conduit for the transportation of products the same as are trucking company and railroads. Their function is simply to provide a means of getting products from point of origin to the buyer. That is in the main how they make their money. They don't normally act as marketers of the product. Upon receipt of crude oil the refineries then process it into various products which they then sell to whatever markets are available to them. The refineries employ people, turn a profit and pay taxes. If these statements are true then to say crude from Alberta will be shipped offshore with no benefit to the US is incorrect. If some of the refined products are then shipped offshore that is an export benefit to the refinery and the US as a whole. Shipping processed goods out of the country benefits a country in numerous ways. I think that to suggest TRP's intent for KXL is to export Alberta crude offshore is not realistic.
