Sure they're loud-mouthed cowboys. Sure their cities are crap-holes where the streets all go one-way... to nowhere. Sure their hockey teams have done fuck all for the nation over the last couple of decades. Sure they boast about all the money they send East while at the same time grovelling for Ottawa infrastructure $s because their tar-mines are all going TU. Which indicates a distinct lack of couth. Sure they inflicted Ezra Levant on the county. Sure they each own a spare gold-plated cowboy that they can melt down to pay the bills when times are tough.
But under Notley's NDP they have instituted a carbon tax. They're at least TRYING to act normal. I say give 'em the one pipeline (which, after all, is there already and only in need of fiddling with to make the project work) and then tell 'em to go pound salt re the others and feel righteous about it.
