According to Albertans the sky is falling as Bill C-48, is unfair because it prevents Oilsands Bitumen from going to market, and it's hypocritical because Quebec doesn't ban tankers. It's a Supertanker ban for Hecate Strait and the Douglas Channel. It does not stop smaller oil tankers from carrying sweet crude. My tweet thread below explains why there is no double standard and why the ban is warranted, especially given it's been informal policy for over 20 yrs.
"Alberta isn’t a victim of unfair treatment. Rather, much of what is lamented today is a side effect of Alberta’s economic strength. Especially when it comes to equalization. No tweak to a program meant to transfer funds to lower income provinces should ever transfer to the richest."
