Canadian Conservatives Ponder Huge Gas Pipeline Investment

to maintain spending on greenhouse gas reduction, but it's contemplating a gas-pipeline investment of $1 billion
or more - an effective subsidy of ExxonMobile and its partners.
Never mind the eco-freaks: every libertarian think-tanker in the business should be spitting mad at the very notion of this level of government intervention in the most profitable business in the world.
