Not a problem for Suncor or CNRL they upgrade. PXX and STP are sending production out by rail, I'm sure there are a few more on that list. BC premier had lots to say about natgas but nothing on oil...

The only solution is negotiation between Alta and BC on the pipelines and it would help if the major players spiced-up the deal with an upgrader on the other end of the line...Once a deal is made between the provincial govt's the rest of the blackmailers can be delt with?

I have mentioned the thousands of BC JOBS that are tied to the oilsands to my MP and the fact that we are sending most of our Kinder Morgan line south to US producers? Prince George could be expanded and Chevron Burnaby or Suncors Port Moody site. If you get on a flight from Comox to Calgary or Edmonton right now almost 90% will be oil sands workers, Westjet just expanded flights from Nanaimo for the same reason. My guess is that after Industry and Governments have been WHACKED OVER THE HEAD WITH THE REALITY STICK we will get the deal done, unfortunately that is what it takes in most cases?
