Another problem for all of our western crud producers is the discount on WCS (Western Canada Select) due to the glut in Cushing? We really need to find an non-US outlet for our oil or continue to suffer the lower prices.
Says it far better than I could. Until we find a way to get Alberta oil to international markets in a big way we will be held hostage to a US market currently awash in oil.

Western Canada Select, a heavy oil blend from Alberta, tumbled to $34 below the U.S. benchmark, its widest discount since March 14.
