Until I see posts from Canadians on here that are against foreign oil import to Canada by countries that openly fund terrorists organizations like ISIS, or hell even from the USA, then I will ignore all posts by them who want to destroy Canadian energy independence. The "it's okay pollute in their backyard" mentality is just one reason these rebels/radicals/islamists/whatever, are against the West.. amongst many others. These people should use their energy to establish business models, propose ideas.. this happens at the oil company I work for, like massive upgrades to our water treatmeant facilities due to new technology. They proposed, we closed on the deal for safer practice.. and more regulation. The tailing pond cleanup issue is a massive one.. start there, find better ways do to it, make it beneficial. There's a project for you.

While I await your edit, I will say these things:
I am pro-Canadian.

I am pro-peaceful protest.

I am pro-pipeline.

I can only guess what kind of quandary I will face here.

Ok.
I think that you fine Canadians should exploit your natural resources intelligently. Use them to increase your manufacturing base of high tech products.
A pipeline is the smart way to move oil, compared to trains, trucks or ships.

Oh, when things get rolling really well, can you sponsor me to move up there?

I totally agree that Canada should stop importing oil if we can be self-sustained. Although I am against the way we harvest schist gas, having a pipeline to distribute oil all over Canada is ecologically the best plan on a short term.

Sorry if I'm off with what I say, I know absolutly nothing about where the pipelines are suppose to go to.

I said short term because I strongly think we should move away from burning fuel to provide energy and keep this resource for plastics.

Me? Why should the companies get to pass the buck?

I'll bet those companies would pay you handsomely for a better solution if you came to them with it.

Rumour in northern Alberta is that the process for extracting oil from the oil-sands started with an oil man's wife trying to clean her hubbies clothes. Reminds me of the farmers that proposed to use hay to clean oil slicks off water surface. Lots of ideas out there.

I never thought of the rebels/radicals being Islamist. In that case these professional protestars are being paid to protect OPEC oil. I was under the impression they were tree huggers who got around on unicorns. Or are they tree huggers who don't understand who is funding them and why?

I think that for many, who is funding them is largely irrelevant, as long as they can get their message out.
2nd.

This. A problem is usually an opportunity for someone.

I'd say, if you come up with a new and better idea and presented it to a corporation, they'd take your idea and any research you did, then call you with a rejection some time later, or you never hear from them again.

After about a month, they will come out and tell the public about some great idea they came up with and that they patented it. Then, when you complain that they stole your idea, they deny they ever heard of or from you. You try like hell to prove you came up with it first, but their lawyers tear you a new one and you never see a cent or any credit for the idea.

That is how that one works in my opinion.

Better solution for whom? The tailing ponds are the best solution for the companies as its the cheapest and easiest route.
