    won't be bribed although of course Stephen Harper's gov't is very susceptible - but the big thing to get allies in unexpected places is the amount of natural gas - and everybody loves natural gas these days, it's the "in" fuel - needed to get that crud out of the ground and liquefied enough to actually transport in a pipeline.  When you're saying 10x, 100x, and more gas in CCF than you can get gallons of dilbit you can shift the conversation.  Once you've done that, tar sands and oil shale get left behind in the garbage can of untenable/unaffordable solutions.
