David Marsden, of the Clagary Herald editorial board, complains about troubles facing the Energy East and other pipelines:
Quebec separation appears to be dead for the time being. But if Alberta is continually thwarted by politicians peddling spurious arguments, don’t be surprised if talk of Alberta separation begins to catch fire once again.
I guess the question really is: who cares? Does anyone in Alberta think it would find it easier get pipeline built as a separate country? The mention of Quebec here is apropos: Alberta stands to Canada where Quebec did about a decade ago: we're tired of their incessant whining, and no longer moved by their threats. In fact I would suggest that the ROC has come to realize that we have Alta. by the balls. Its time they figured that out, else we decide to squeeze 'em.
