Their "money" is on (I'm forgetting their names but) the one to Vancouver (Transmountain?) by KinderMorgan and TransCanada's pipeline to Cushing. They figure both those will be built.


I agree, Transmountain is expanding an existing pipeline with right of way in place. Keystone will get approved the first business day after the US election regardless of who wins. LNG from Kitimat is also probably a given? Northern Gateway perhaps could happen but it would be a tough fight.

There is almost no way that refinery could happen as that is not what the customers want. Refineries are the Rodney Dangerfield of the industry and it is easier to move crude long distance than it is refined products that must meet specific local requirements.

I wonder if Harper is using Northern Gateway as a bargaining chip to be traded away as a sop to the enviro-movement?
