Lets make it happen. Then we could eliminate all imported crude. Refine more in Ontario and ship the gas south.

They have no problem having a pipeline run through Maine with no benefit to Maine and we take all the risks. So how dare they say they will approve a pipeline to another Canadian province so long as it benefits them (insinuating if it doesn't they won't go along).

Can't wait forever for Keystone. It could help reduce pump prices in the Maritimes too.
