Here is a little cut n paste from a story in the Globe n Mail...
"according to the Canadian Energy Research Institute.
The Calgary-based think tank calculates that 94 per cent of the economic benefits of the oil sands (about $84-billion annually through 2035) stay in Alberta, but many of the materials needed for oil-sands development, such as vehicles and their parts, as well as pumps and gauges, are manufactured in Ontario and elsewhere far from the oil sands.
CERI also projected that over the same 25-year time frame, British Columbia could expect $28-billion in economic benefits and 31,500 jobs connected to the oil sands, while Quebec may see $14-billion and 16,380 jobs.
Ontario urged to speak up for oil sands - The Globe and Mail
And who is the Canadian Research Energy Institute ?...Well, they are the oil companies, the numbers are bogus, this is pure hogwash propaganda coming from the oil whores....And where are these 31,500 jobs, Enbridge northern gateway pipeline according to Enbridge will create 150 full-time jobs???
And where is that money, Alberta hasn`t offered any part of the royalties to British Columbia, of course the Globe n Mail ask no questions, they run that article with no scrutiny...Because perhaps they missed another article with another set of numbers, only these numbers are from The University of Calgary, but here`s the deal, the Canadian Energy Research Institute`s numbers are 200 hundred times higher than the University of Calgary`s numbers...Have a look..
"The University of Calgary's School of Public Policy issued an analysis Thursday concluding that with expanded pipeline access to U.S. and Asian markets, Canada's gross domestic product would jump $132 billion in 2010 dollars between 2016 and 2030, generating $27 billion in federal, provincial and municipal taxes and 649,000 person-years of employment.
But the study also shows that the overwhelming economic benefit of pipeline expansion to B.C. goes to Alberta.
The opening of the Asian market would trigger $10.5 billion in gains and 52,000 person-years of employment in Canada, but almost $10 billion of that wealth and 44,000 person-years go to Alberta. Ontario would get $286 million and 4,000 person-years, while B.C. would enjoy $131 million and 2,000 person-years.
The study also suggests that B.C. would gain an additional $85 million in GDP and another 1,000 person-years due to increased exports to California if pipelines are built to the West Coast."
