    I'll take a guess and suggest that they may not have any population centers dense enough for it to make economic sense.

    I told you it was guess.

    Because they are expensive, dirty and already available elsewhere.

    Then why don't they refine it themselves?

    I,m just guessing here but it would probably be a problem shipping fuel to Asia if a port is iced in during the winter.

    I see Harper's threat as pretty empty. The cost of shipping to Asia for refining would be even more energy inefficient than shipping to Texas. Especially if we were footing the bill for the pipeline.

    I never realized Harper was such a shit.

    #1 you aren't footing the bill for the pipeline. Our west coast ports aren't iced in ever. You guys look so stupid in this thread it's really funny.

    And we will be selling to China. And making mega bucks.
