I think that article makes some good points and we all know our provincial government would never back a new refinery. Its easy to say your in favor of something when you know it will never happen. No one has any plans to build a refinery in BC so why not back it. Its just an excuse they are using to save face and try to limit the back lash. Our own refineries are tiny compared to the other provinces something like 55,000 bbl/day for the bby one. The only thing viable right now is selling the crude oil.
