Perhaps they opened up the shipping issue themselves through their legislation banning tankers from the north shore?

Canada does not control shipping in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Americans are less likely to commit economic hari kari than Canadians.  I'm guessing that over time, despite whatever Canada decides, ships heading into the Port of Seattle will be killing whales in ever increasing numbers.  Also note that we haven't strangled the Ports of Montreal, Quebec, and the Great Lakes despite an unsustainable loss of whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Both the US and Canada are working together to reduce impacts on the resident Killer whales. In fact the EPA has far more teeth than CEAA ever had and can force requirements onto shipping.

Nice to see WTI trading at $71.50 a barrel, Saudi Arabia getting $$78.71 for its heavy oil and even basketcase Venezuelan Merey getting $67.38/barrel. Canada’s WCS oil? $15.97
LET THAT SINK IN. WAKE UP CANADA.

If Quebec had to sell power and Ontario had to sell automotive and BC had to sell tourism at these kinds of disgusting discounts, we would say the country's in crisis. But the Ottawa attitude on this economic catastrophe for #Alberta is  "there's nothing to see here."
