Oil be there for you
Re: Keep it in the ground (Oct. 12)
Peter Denton writes that the Saudis announced a US$30- to US$50-billion investment in renewable energy. I suppose now that the Energy East pipeline has been cancelled, Canadians should be advised that this investment by the Saudis is 100 per cent paid by Canada as we continue to buy the Saudis’ oil for our eastern refineries.
Our country is in debt and our debt will cripple future generations. Provincial debts are rising at alarming rates, unsustainable health-care expectations by Canadians as well as gold-plated pension plans for professors and public servants allow certain consultants to talk at length about sustainable development and shutting down or stifling western oil interests. Even the moniker of tar sands vs. oilsands is negative.
