Dear Friends and Partners,

We're up again, no we're down again. Like a ball in the air, it has been tough to know exactly where it'll land - that has been our economy and politics of late. I suppose in a sense that is consistent. If you've been trying to figure out what Greece, Italy, France, Iran and the U.S.A. are going to do - don't. I have attached a quote at the bottom of this newsletter that offers sage advice for these uncertain times. Another good saying to practice now is "Hope for the best and plan for the worst". The Keystone pipeline is a good example, if we're not going to build it now; we can build it later. If not to the U.S.A., then to China. Use today to practice optimism like water; flow around your obstacles.

Lamphier: Economic Future Lies With Booming Asia

By Gary Lamphier, Edmonton Journal, November 7th 2011

EDMONTON - It’s all about Asia now. As is increasingly obvious, that’s where Canada’s economic future lies.
If you don’t get that, you can’t appreciate what we’ll need to do to sustain our comfy Canadian living standards or secure our kids’ economic futures in the years ahead.

The world has changed. When some 20 million Americans remain jobless two years into a recovery, and crisis-ridden Europe is forced to beg China for bailout money, you know it’s different this time.

Asia’s soaring economic clout is reflected in the changing makeup of the world’s 250 largest energy firms, a list that’s compiled each year by Platts, a New York-based commodity research firm. GRAB THIS STORY

Canada Defiant After U.S. Oil Pipeline Rebuff

By David Ljunggern, Reuters. Thursday November 10th, 2011

OTTAWA/CALGARY, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Canada will keep promoting crude from the tar sands of northern Alberta as a secure source of energy despite a U.S. decision to delay approval of a pipeline to carry the oil from Alberta to Texas, officials said on Thursday.
The Canadian government and the oil industry have limited options, however, as another controversial proposal to build a pipeline to export tar sands crude to Asian markets is just at the beginning of a lengthy review process.

The U.S. move to put off a decision on TransCanada Corp's proposed $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline for 18 months is a significant blow for Ottawa, which has strongly backed the project. READ MORE HERE.
