Re: “Build the oil refineries in Fort McMurray, Progress letters, April 30.
If only it were that simple.
Okay, build a refinery there with the money you saved from building pipelines.
Now, what do you do with the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel you produce? You have to build a pipeline.
Then, how do you market the valuable by-products left behind that are in demand worldwide for products we use every day and the (bitumen-asphalt )road we drive on?
I got it: dilute the residue with some diesel and build another pipeline.
