Miss your quota loose your territory


The Tar Sands Minister of Finance, Jim Flaherty spoke out today from the APEC conference in Honolulu, introducing plan B for the oil industry’s now shell shocked Canadian subsidiary. With the Keystone pipeline being delayed for a couple of years, the current Canadian management team has moved their focus onto the BC Gateway project.
The unveiling of the revised timetable follows yesterday’s comments from the Tar Sands Minister of Natural Resources, Joe Oliver who surprisingly was still quoting the subsidiaries failed, ethical oil, marketing slogan. Meanwhile the Prime Minister of Tar Sands has remained silent, leaving his PR department to reiterate the long term viability of the Canadian organization. Although one would suspect that there was talk around the boardroom table about the continuing independence of the Canadian operation and the general weakness in their marketing abilities.

Speaking of marketing, ex-US Ambassador to Canada under Bush Jr. is now shilling for the Canadian petro association.

Why not build the refineries in Canada? "Because regulation would make it take 20 years"

Why not build a pipeline to the East to where existing refineries have been closed, refurbish them, stop importing "un-ethical oil", and even reduce Albertan equalization payments? "Umm... Err... Adscam?"
