    How much of the revenue from the pipeline will be going to the Albertan government?

  • JAcob, Nov 29th, 2012 (1 year ago)

    I'm all up for our economy to make billion upon billions of dollars for our better good! I juSt don't understAnd why our Country continues to sell off our companies to other countries, and by back our products for twice as much! How about sell our product to the chinese instead of selling the companies! As we all know we extract more than 85% of our natural resources to other! So the question here is, the final product that we get from this, is it going to ruin our land after all the extraction is done?

    How much more would go into the economy and how many more short and long term jobs would there be if a refinery was built in Fort MacMurry and the oil was refined in Alberta? Instead of by the Chinese?

    Hi Kailee, thanks for your question.

    Once construction begins, it'll take about three years of work before the pipeline is operational.

  • Kailee, Nov 21st, 2012 (1 year ago)

    How long will the building of the pipeline take?
