I feel we must continue to support "Willing To Pay More" Warren Buffett, and resist building of pipelines, in order to ship more crude by rail. To support our Warren...by supporting BNSF.

So, is there a reason why bakken oil is being imported and shipped to Eastern Canada? Could they not have shipped the tar sand crude there cheaper? After all, tar sand is cheaper. But, we will be able ship so much more bakken in the XL??? not. Estimated at 50,000 BPD for ND , maybe.... Our production will be over a million barrels so it will reeeaaaallly help the flow. Well, why not ship bakken to the US and let Canada keep their garbage. We have a glut of oil. Canada is importing the good crude and shipping the ugly crude. Oh, and jack, who is resisting building domestic pipelines the most? If you guessed Big oil, you are right ... for once. The Keystone is a Koch brothers boondoggle.
