Interesting how, in your opinion, it is wrong for money to come into Canada to aid those opposed to rapidly expanding the output of the Oil Sands and supporting infrastructure, yet the companies that stand to profit mightly from further development of the oil sands and pipelines, which have extremely deep pockets to put out their message, is, in your opinion fair. Big Oil commpanies are multi-national - their interests are soley their own, they are not aligned with any particular country - they do what is best for their bottom line and for their investors, the majority of whom are not Canadians. Money expended by the likes of CAPP, an organization dedicated to the Oil Industry, come from many producers, the largest of whom are foreign. Their pro-oil sands ads appear regularly on TV trying to get the larger public to buy into their position. Try being a bit more balanced in your opinions. If Harper wants further development of the oil sands he needs to make sure Canada's interests come first - that is getting a fair return in the form of corporate taxes and royalties and making sure that the toxic mess in the Fort McMurray area is cleaned up as development progresses. Ditto for the Alberta Government and there better be something substaintial in this for British Columbia, the Province with the most to loose.
