That I came across.

Suncor boosts heavy oil sales to U.S.

This is a HUGE deal; as a result of the largest single tar sands operator expanding the amount of procesing done in the US, the number-- according to the FTA and NAFTA-- can NEVER GO BACK DOWN in terms of percentage, or "proportion".

This is where the "proportionality clause" kicks in; the amount of an energy source sent south in one day must stay at that proportion permanently.

Therefore this is the announcement that the state of Canada is now further beholden to the US state, never mind what happens to the indigenous nations as a direct result.

Where on earth are our politicians?

Don't we have any opposition.
