  • Alberta promises not to change oil, gas royalty rates before end of 2016 [View news story]
    Micheal,
    Re ur comment - "disgusted by the prospect of a $15 an hour minimum wage."

    That is a promise by Mulcair that has nothing to do with Provincial minimum wage laws. The Federal gov't. only sets minimum wages for a small group of people. The Provinces set their own rates which apply to the vast majority of people. Mulcair has made a B.S. promise to make himself look good to those who don't know the facts. There will be a lot of disappointed minimum wage earners when they find it doesn't apply to them if Mulcair wins the election.

  • Alaska governor to recommend buyout of TransCanada in LNG project [View news story]
    Gov'ts. don't belong in business. They are not designed for that roll and are not competent in that roll. Gov'ts. job is to set the stage so private industry can look after the business of employing people and generating cash flow.
    Look at the socialist run countries; disaster upon disaster economically.

  • Harper slams the door on regulating Canada’s oil and gas sector [View news story]
    User 50988
    You say "land was seized illegally."
    Can you back up your claim with some factual evidence or is it just more emotional based BS?

  • Harper slams the door on regulating Canada’s oil and gas sector [View news story]
    User 509088,
    Re your comment--"Months ago Pm said he would punish the states if pipe wasn't approved. America would taste his wrath (vanilla wrath, I'm told)."

    I do not believe you are quoting what Harper actually said. Please give us a reference to your claims.

    Your comment-- "Pm said he would not take no for answer." is, as I recall, the only correct part of your claim.
    That is not a threat!

    Accuracy has more credibility than exaggeration.

  • Canadian oil sands price nears $20/bbl, cut in half since July 1 [View news story]
    Siv,
    The tailings came from the ground. They are what is left over after the bitumen is removed. The difference being that the original solids (sand, clay fines etc.) were soaked with bitumen, now they are soaked with water. People love to ignore the environmental situation that existed prior to removal of the bitumen from the soil.

  • Upcoming Political Risks For TransCanada Corp And The Keystone XL Pipeline [View article]
    User199840

    It would be helpful to have a non-biased purely fact based assessment rather than what appear to be distorted views presented in a alarmist manner. I have lived where there are thousands of miles of pipelines serving oil, nat gas and water. Never have I seen or heard of so many unbelievable claims as the referenced articles and arm-chair experts claim about KXL and TransCanada Pipelines. TRP has always shown itself to be a competent operator since I first experienced them in the 1950's. There is some part of the story that is not being discussed which I suspect is because it does not serve the various emotional writers point of view. Who was the actual construction contractor, what was their responsibility when did TRP learn about the problems, did TRP itself discover bad workmanship by the contractor and then as was probably required by law not only take action to have repairs made but to also report the problems to the authorities having jurisdiction. Could there be some other cause other than TRP or the contractor, as was the case of some pipeline explosions a few years ago caused by bombs attached to Nat Gas lines by a deranged person who thought he was an environmentalist? It would be helpful to know the whole story before jumping to conclusions and pointing fingers.

  • How To Prepare For The Impending Canadian Financial Disaster (Part 1: For Canadians) [View article]
    To make blanket statements is a mistake. Housing prices in Canada appear high in some areas while in other areas they do not. In some areas of the West Coast and Vancouver Island the prices seem high because many people are selling overpriced homes in other areas such as Vancouver, Toronto and elsewhere including other countries and buying into these areas with cash. In some cases it is a second home or a retirement situation.

  • Michigan bans heavy oil from Straits of Mackinac pipeline [View news story]
    They should just stop doing anything that requires energy, lubrication and everything else that is provided by petroleum. Besides, what causes them to think pipelining heavy crude is more dangerous than light crude?

  • Worries grow that Alberta's spreading wildfires will whack Canada's GDP [View news story]
    Sounds like common sense on the part of some has gone out of fashion. It's just one more temporary disruption that will pass. The sun will still shine tomorrow.

  • Energy East pipeline application should be suspended, groups say [View news story]
    user---,

    I love that li'l ole pipe that brings inexpensive clean burning natural gas through my property and into my house so I can keep nice and toasty warm all winter. Some of my neighbours however love to heat their house with an inefficient stinky old polluting wood burner. How about you?
