Who Would Have Guessed?

In yet another report from the anti-business, anti-development and just generally acting like we should all stock up on cheap blankets and go back to subsistence farming:

Pembina Institute .... from a report by (who else) CP....

"Alta shouldn't approve Edmonton oilsands refineries without greener rules: report

EDMONTON - Alberta should not approve as many as six more oilsands upgraders near Edmonton until the province has a solid plan to limit the huge amount of fresh water they will use and to better manage the pollution they will produce, a new study says.

The Pembina Institute's Oilsands Fever report, released on Monday, says nine bitumen upgraders are expected to begin operating just northeast of the capital between 2015 and 2020."

I guess if running around waving your hands in the air and screaming that "We're All Going to Die!" is what passes for educated dialog on policy and economic matters and IF you agree ...then CP is acting as megaphone for the right people!

Expect the CBC and CTV echo chambers to be amplifying this story...
