Elections Have Consequences

China and Canada have cut a multibillion-dollar trade and business agreements to ship additional Canadian petroleum, uranium and other products to the Asian superpower.

More details at Hot Air:

Harper announced Thursday, following meetings with Chinese President Hu Jintao and Vice-Premier Li Keqiang, that the countries have struck an agreement that will allow Canadian uranium companies to “substantially increase exports to China.”

“We expect to see similar success stories in Canadian energy exports to China, once infrastructure is in place.”

Harper has said building pipelines to the West Coast — such as the proposed Northern Gateway oilsands pipeline and a separate one for liquefied natural gas — is a national priority as Canada looks to ship its vast resources to Asia.

As I am sure you know that Canada first offered that oil to it’s neighbor, but was stiffed by President Obama who refused to allow the Canadian company to build the XL-Pipeline to Texas.   That oil offered to US businesses will soon be going to China, which our companies have to compete with in the global markets.

Elections have consequences, it is time for a change in Washington.
