As far as our dependance on Canada's natural gas,pfft. Its all shale in Alberta,which the US oil companies are helping Canada extract. Raised gas prices in the US have more to do with speculation,than actual demand. Our demand has always been high.China and Indias usage increase also increases prices,obviously. So knock off the US bashing,thankyou.
Do you not think the US prospers from Canada? It is a two way street bud. The US depends on Canada as much as Canada depends on the US.
Why do you think the US & China (oil companies) are in Alberta? To play hippity-hop at the barber shop? They need OUR OIL & are desperate for it.
So with all do respect, ease of on your US pride bull****, and show some respect to Canada.
