To address the question of pipeline construction however, a new pipeline from Alberta to Vancouver is under construction now. I haven't heard of any major protest problems with it this year.There's a limit on gathering here and look how well that has worked out! I take it the mounties take enforcement a bit more seriously and robustly than the pathetic excuse for constabulary we currently seem to enjoy on this side of the pond...?
The main problem though is going to be the new pipeline to the US. Large parts of it have already been built, but US candidate for president Biden has said he will stop it if he is elected. With Trump's re-election looking shaky, Alberta could could be in trouble when it comes to export capacity to their biggest market.
