Ok, try this one on for size...
Who is the only country who seems to be riding out this current economic plunge...whose banking policies pretty much protected it from the mortgage
debacle? Why Canada, of course!
And what is bolstering up our economy in spite of the flight of heavy industry...steel, auto... to Asia? Why, the Athabaska Tar Sands!
We have known about the tar sands for years...I was up there in 1975 and they were doing limited extraction. Limited, because it is a very expensive
way of getting oil. Only worth your while if the price of crude is way up there.
So, how you gonna bring Canada's economy down commensurate with the rest of the slaughter? Why you depress the price of gasoline!!
Today's Toronto Star, one column, page 3, "Alberta's Big Boom Going Bust". I got gas for $.80/litre (you do the math).
This depresssion/recession is an artificial construct to raid the middle class boomers of a hell of a lot of wealth...mostly based upon real estate.
Even during our recent election, Steve-o opined that this would be a good time to buy stock. Idiot just can't keep a secret.
And that's why I'm not jumping for joy over cheap gas.
