Since we get 15% to 20% of our oil from Canada and about half of Canada's oil production comes from oil sands, I would ask how that is going to the effect greenhouse gas emissions of our fuel. It is estimated that oil sands production produces 3 times the ghg emissions of convention oil recovery techniques and the refining of oil sands oil is estimated to produce about 15% more ghg emissions.

Also since oil sands production involves strip mining large sections of forest I would ask when a land use study is going to done to access how those actions are effecting the environment.

A new energy balance study taking into account the increased use of oil sands oil would also be nice.
