Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is proposing Ottawa get into the crude-by-rail business — at least temporarily — so that producers in her province can get a better price for their oil. 

“We are in the midst of putting together a specific business case that we'll be taking to the federal government late this week, early next week, where we lay out the specific costs,'' Notley said Monday following a meeting with energy industry leaders in Calgary.

Editor: This article shows the need for a change in the way people survive and find satisfaction in their lives.  At the very least governments should be encouraging jobs in producing alternative/sustainable energy.  The article shows a misunderstanding of the effects of fracked gas which is a greenhouse gas contributing to global climate change. The damaging effects of fracking, pipeline building and ultimate burning of the gas on the environment and climate are overlooked.)

Octt 19, 2018 - During these weeks leading up to the electoral reform referendum, I’ve been giving a lot of talks, making the case for switching to a system of proportional representation (pro rep). Invariably, during Q&A, I get asked how I personally plan to rank the three reform options on the ballot’s second question.

But until now, I’ve resisted publicly answering this question; how one ranks the reform options is a personal choice.
