It is easy to shrug as it is a long way away in a foreign country. Put this in perspective – imagine your favourite CBC journalist critiquing our federal overlords and for so doing is tortured, murdered, dismembered and body hidden. Of course this will not happen in Canada but is does bring about a perspective and why the world should be concerned.
I did not keep the URl so I can’t reference for accuracy, but I believe I read that the value of Canadian oil is $52 and a barrel of West Texas crude in valued in the $80s. Why the large difference?
