Typical Liberal ideology, Canadian oil bad, Saudi Oil good..
The primary idea floated previously by industry observers including Frank McKenna, the Toronto-Dominion Bank deputy chairman and former New Brunswick premier, is building an upgrader in Saint John near Irving Oil's existing refinery. The unit would process heavy oil-sands bitumen into light, synthetic crude, given the higher demand lighter grades from refinery customers across the Atlantic.
Irving Oil, controlled by Canadian billionaire Arthur Irving, would operate and own half of a marine export terminal already planned for the port city as part of the Energy East pipeline project. Energy East, estimated by TransCanada to cost C$15.7 billion ($12 billion), would transport as much as 1.1 million barrels a day. The pipeline's forecast cost has risen with changes to the design amid opposition and delays in the regulatory review.

ďAdditions to Irving's refinery plant could handle the crude from Alberta's oil sandsĒ
So it obviously canít.
Who do you suppose should pay the billions required to upgrade the facility
I must say though, itís interesting to see you put so much stock in what a politician says
It is for people like you that donít understand the economics of it or just want to throw taxpayers dollars at it
You are a Trumpite after all
Also from the link
“Edward Kallic, of Ziff Energy Group in Calgary, said the demand to refine the oil is there, but a pipeline out east would not be the first option.
"I wouldn't think that building a big line into the east coast is going to be economically viable," he said.”
Thanks again Boomer, for proving me right. I know I can always count on you.
