"Ooh, there's oil up there! Oh, but it belongs to other people. What's that? There's a whole other country up there? Dang."

You really think we're worth that much? Why not just invade us...

Actually, now that we've elected the conservatives, we may just be giving them our oil for free.

An estimated 175 billion barrels of oil @ $40 US per barrell... that's about $7 Trillion. I expect to see some cool stuff coming out of Canada besides great musicians, great hockey and um, great stock photo companies.

If all the oil were in Quebec, you know the US would just invade immediately. =P
