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.)

[Editor: And on the theme of what could be done with $4.5 billion and counting!]

In explaining Canada's decision to nationalise the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5bn, Bill Morneau went hard on the economic argument. “Make no mistake,” the finance minister said. “This is an investment in Canada’s future.”

In fact, since 1999, more than $200bn has been invested into the Alberta oil sands for that future. But what if that cash had gone into wind energy instead?

Let’s compare.
