Post by firstname.lastname@example.org Hell, most of Alberta's revenue from the dirty tar sands go into Texan pockets. Is there a difference?
Yes, in Alberta the tax revenues stay in Alberta. In Ontario, not so much.
You sure they stay in Alberta? Notley and Trudeau are telling us that the Kinder Morgan pipeline and exporting of their bitumen is "in the country's interests". How can that be if the tax revenues stay in Alberta? https://globalnews.ca/video/4145478/trudeau-maintains-that-building-tran-mountain-pipeline-in-national-interests/
The fact that something does not benefit you personally does not mean that it cannot benefit the nation as a whole.
