    That’s cap and trade, folks!

    January 23, 2018 by Roger McKnight

    So, I got bored with my latest collector’s edition of the Farmers’ Almanac and switched my intellectual channel to, “Home Remedies that Prevent Death and Other Things.” Don’t smirk, this is a first edition and possibly the one and only

    An inconvenient truth in global crude

    January 16, 2018 by Roger McKnight

    Another year, another fuel price increase

    January 10, 2018 by Roger McKnight

    Ah yes, a new year and a new opportunity for new thoughts or thought processes … at least that’s what I believed on New Year’s Eve. But thinking is a foreign invader in the lexicon sanctity of governmental direction. I

    Wake up Canada! We need to move oil across this country to tidewater – and soon!

    December 11, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    Let’s face it, changing your mind is just re-targeting to a more ‘hittable target,’ or focusing on the ‘focusable.’ Recently, two people come to mind who have changed their minds and are re-focusing — Alberta’s Premier, Rachel Notely, and me

    Wheels coming off the logic wagon with Clean Energy Canada

    December 7, 2017 by Roger McKnight

      I often wonder if in the days before the webernet, and even before Prime Minister Trudeau’s, “Say, hey! What you say, don’t you love my sunny ways?’ decriminalization of marijuana, what the difference was between real and surreal. Shortly

    The National Energy Board should take a page from the Liberals’ wacky tabacky concept

    September 25, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    I admit that I’m in a strange minority – better known as the minority of the strange. That’s because I actually read a hard copy of the news and, yes, I am equal opportunity strange in that I subscribe to

    Stop criticizing and start coming up with good solutions

    August 28, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    Should crude oil from Alberta be refined in Alberta?

    August 21, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    The quest for Wally World inside the world of crude oil refining

    August 15, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    It’s with the threat of a tsunami of frustration, impending doom, and boredom that I will attempt to lighten this discussion by using personification to capture your interest, thus preventing terminal glassy-eyed (or should I say gassy-eyed) syndrome, which accompanies

    July 10, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    If you want to make a blurry TV picture less blurry, you just have to adjust the contrast. But if you try messing with the colours, then you’ll forget what you were looking at in the first place. The Canadian

    Fifty ways to leave your lover – or NAFTA

    July 4, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover is the title of a song that I found tedious, so I gave up at number seven. If there were another 43 options, then the relationship was never fully related. But with Canada Day on

    Is our world a little cuckoo?

    June 22, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    NAFTA is an heirloom we should hold on to

    May 23, 2017 by Roger McKnight

    Like it or not (I go for curtain two), this is regretfully the season of the garage sale – which in my opinion, should be called a “garbage” sale. In our household, the optics of this event is that of
