“As Canadian Prime Minister Harper notes, fostering a greater North American energy partnership that replaces OPEC imports with stable supply from secure sources at discounted prices should be a “no brainer.” And Mexico is now displaying a renewed interest in collaborating with outside partners to increase development of its own plentiful resources. By collaborating with these countries on energy development, America can guarantee itself a reliable and affordable supply of energy while also opening up new opportunities for American businesses and workers in the region.” (pg. 12)
This is international cooperation with close regional allies to promote economic development within the relative economic safety of North America for the benefit of all participants. Is this easy or what? It’s so easy when the only agenda is the welfare of the citizenry.
This one policy plank alone is enough to win the election. It makes so much sense. Even the losers win. Everyone wins when the economy is free to grow. Everyone wins when people are free to grow and prosper and improve their lives and the lives of others.
Obama’s response to his purposeful increase in energy prices? -Tap the Strategic Oil Reserve...again. Unbelievable. Just incredible. I’m going to stay away from the whys and wherefores of Obama’s disastrous energy policies. Suffice it to say that at the very least President Obama is grossly ill equipped and woefully incompetent to lead the free world.
It’s never that simple though is it? Do you suppose it’s just a case of Forest Gump accidentally landing in the Oval Office?
The Prime Minister made an excellent move calling the Keystone XL a “no brainer.” In a world of lies the truth is a potent tool. Ezra Levant can also feel ebullient since the core essence of the “Ethical Oil” argument is also contained in the passage above. Sound logic and potent truth: deadly.
Sun News can also take pride in providing another quote from HMPM Stephen Harper. They do so alongside the company of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Department of Energy and so on.
Canadian PM Harper: “Look, the very fact that a 'no' could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets…We cannot be, as a country, in a situation where our one and, in many cases, only energy partner could say no to our energy products. We just cannot be in that position.” (Bryn Weese, “Harper Determined To Get Canadian Oil To Asia,” Sun News, 4/3/12)
Read the whole thing right here. It’s important. I have only just scanned it myself. Every wonk and politico in the hemisphere will be all over it before long. Google has almost 4000 news articles at the time I write this already. Enjoy!Energy Policy White Paper 8.23
