    Kevin has it right.
    AB’s oil industry has the lowest taxes and lowest royalties of any oil producing jurisdiction in the world. Compared to the states of the USA, including those along AB’s border, AB’s industry is massively subsidized. The greed of Calgary’s oil industry and the sense of entitlement that personifies the industry in AB, is sickening on at least two levels: (1) the financial loss to Albertan’s as resource owners and (2) the impact on Democracy through what Mr Taft correctly characterized as oil’s “deep state”..
