You do realize that BC only produces 1.6% of Canadian oil annually?

In BC we only produced 1,132,031 M3 or 7,120,475 bbl last year which considering our provinces population and heavy reliance on other resources such as Fishing, Lumber, Mining, and Farming we will either have to shut those industries down completely since we will not have enough BC drilled oil or continue importing oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Yes we (Canada) ship oil to the USA, as a country we produce more than we use, so why not sell it for a profit? Its one of those perks of having the 3rd largest Oil reserves on the planet.

Most interesting and informative links, but so far I've only had time to briefly scan them. Can't download the 2nd one, unfortunately. Thank you, and I'll get back to you when I've read them in their entirety.

All 3 links work just fine.

The links are fine, but she might not be able to download and open the spreadsheets (on the second link) with whatever device she's using.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Who's Dimples? Who's the MP for Kelowna? Both interesting questions that are hard to answer.
