    Alberta is landlocked.  These companies are desperate to reduce the cost of shipping their raw product to refineries or export terminals in order to reduce the price differential with WTI.  They don't care whether their oil going to the US, China, or Uzbekistan.

    Limiting the ability of tar sands producers to ship their product to foreign markets is THE most effective way of slowing the growth of the industry as it currently exists, whether we are talking about Keystone XL, Northern Gateway, or a project that runs up through Valdez in Alaska.

    Legalized corruption is destroying our democracy.
