    The oil sands will be shipped to refineries somewhere.

    It will either be transported across Canada and loaded on tankers for refining in China or other countries with even lower environmental standards or it will be shipped to our refineries along the Gulf Coast where we have some controls on how it is converted to refined petroleum products and how the waste is handled.

    The best outcome will come from political pressure on Canada to stop the exploitation of the oil sands themselves.

    BTW: We are exporting refined gasoline and other products because we have reduced our usage of the gasoline created when we refine the diesel we need from the oil we import.

      Heck, as long as the demand is here, there, or anywheres, they're going to keep pumping it out.
