If Canada is the second largest supplier of oil and gas to the U.S. next to the Saudis. How can the u.s. retail price of fuel be lower than it is here in Canada. We just rolled over $1 per litre in Southern Alberta.
CattleCo said:You mean the Canadina Ag economy is not flourishing like the Ag Economy here in the US? TO hear Agman tell it his charts and graphs tell us we are all rolling in economic clover? :roll:
Maybe we have the same economist and commodity brokers running back and forth across the border? Sounds like you Canadians are getting more bull crap data like our COF report!
BIG PROBLEM.....AG commodity prices go up and go down and go up etc.......cost of PRODUCTIONS GOES UP and UP and UP and UP GET THE PICTURE......???? But we are rolling in clover........looks like 5 wt calves on the Video today are under a buck fifteen ! What happenend to those 150.00 calves from last month......looks like if you waited a month you could save [email protected] head!! :roll:

elwapo said:would it not be better to apply the tax to the product in the pipeline heading south. Since the big pipelines have gone through to the south we have lost a very large industry (methanex) that relied on the afforable gas we produced here in southern Alberta reducing us again to a supplier of raw product and losing jobs to the U.S. Given the way we have been colonialized by NAFTA, I think it is time to rethink the way we do business. We need fair trade not one sided trade that illegally applies tarrifs and other restrictions to soft wood lumber , wheat, and beef. The U.S is just ignoring WTO judgements at will and at the expense of Canadians.
elwapo said:Agman do you think energy prices are the prime inflationary influence we are facing. I read in a financial paper that inflation is being seriously under-reported at this time.
