    Get Canadian's behind creating more of their own refineries. Keep the monopoly of refining away from the Koch's. The oil sands will be utilized until solar, wind, tide or some other energy source replaces it.

      where they already have refineries capable of handling heavy oil. We are sending our light crude from the Bakken to Canada and Mexico. I kid you not.

      You are quite right. Forcing Canada to refine tar sands crude and ship from their ports maintains most of emissions from refining heavy oil and other environmental impacts in their country.

      Be radical in your compassion.
