re: #12 Buck

Americans will buy and use the same amount of oil, no matter where it is purchased from. You miss the point.

Which is why this is pointless, since the Saudis will be making just as much money. With the US buying more oil, Canada will probably wind up importing more Middle Eastern oil.

Since most of the companies doing the oil sales are multinational corporations, what the hell does this matter, anyway? The corporations aren’t the people of Canada, the wealth that goes to them doesn’t go to Canada, so what’s the ethical connection?
