More about Alberta’s oil supply

Regarding Mary Feddema’s letter (No need to complain about Alberta oil) in the Oct. 26 Express).

There is more. Canada still imports approximately 50% of its crude oil requirements for the needs of Central and for Eastern Canada.

Most of this crude oil comes from Middle East countries and from South America. Many of these oil importing countries are enemies of the United Nations. My question?

Why are there not more pipelines not being built to Central and to Eastern Canada?

Alberta and Western Canada holds the second largest energy reserves in the entire world. Just think of all the jobs more pipelines and refineries would be created for Canadians.

Our governments are asleep in this regard.
