Whereas, Canada is the number one exporter of oil to the United States, and its oilsands contain the world’s third largest proven oil reserves, after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela;
Whereas, the United States imports millions of barrels of Conflict Oil every day from politically oppressive and environmentally reckless regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Venezuela;
Whereas, the United States can reduce its dependence on Conflict Oil by increasing imports of Ethical Oil from Canada’s oilsands;
We the undersigned urge the Obama Administration to support initiatives – including the creation of new pipelines like Keystone XL - that will reduce U.S. dependence on Conflict Oil by allowing more Americans to choose Ethical Oil from Canada, its oilsands, and other liberal democracies.
