“Your gift to us, around $100 million per day Canadian, is greatly appreciated. We marvel at your generosity, while doubting your sanity.”
In a recent letter to the editor brought to my attention by @demikal1 on Twitter, Adam Lloyd from Seattle said ‘thank-you’ to B.C. for blocking oil pipelines and ensuring that the U.S. continues to benefit from cheap Canadian oil.
Here’s what Lloyd wrote in the letter titled “Thank-you B.C. for oil discount.”
“Thanks to the citizens of B.C. who seem once again to have blocked an oil pipeline to the coast. Those of us living south of the border will continue to enjoy importing your oil at substantial discounts while exporting our oil from gulf ports at world-market prices. Your gift to us, around $100 million per day Canadian, is greatly appreciated. We marvel at your generosity while doubting your sanity. All of this will have zero impact on global climate, of course.”

Lloyd’s letter is true. The lack of pipelines in Canada is causing severe damage to Canada, doing nothing for the climate, but is certainly helping the United States.
Basically, we’re subsidizing economic growth in the United States, while holding back growth in our own country. It makes us a laughingstock.
