Im still pondering if TMX is going to be filled with fresh water.... if Canada is going green, where's the revenue coming from? Reply With Quote

Sep 18, 2020 | 04:20 2 One huge opportunity for northwest AB would be to run a water pipeline from a source close to the mountains down to areas in Colorado or Arizona. This would open up some areas at mid latitudes to habitation which would be worth billions while being a large revenue generator for us stuck in a cold inhospitable climate which is now in the third world. Far better idea than trying to irrigate land next to the north pole with a 90 day growing season. Reply With Quote
Sep 18, 2020 | 07:45 3 Ajl, your vision is visionary (from usa perspective).
- You could partner that concept with indigenous leaders and creat a natural grass fed buffalo sanctuary where no roads are allowed only foot traffic only. Turn the lights off when you leave.
- no question the usa wants our water, at zero cost as they are or have come close to running out with the current water use programs
- projects you describe will funnel money to eastern canada, where have we seen this before, (oil, grains, etc)
- why is it that no one wants to build infrastructure and industry ( includes farming) at home vs let somebody else do it some place else?
- sounds like farming of all types shouldn’t occur north of South Dakota ( tax free state), that will solve over production, productivity, etc
- drain the north and south saskatchewan rivers divert them south so the governments and generate income to equalize, include, harmonize society, pay off and grow all minority groups at the detriment of the people who built this country.
- run Sask. Into a desert, take away the water - couple of dry years - where will every one move to ? - south of South Dakota

That’s it, just hit a nerve. We have resources that can build a quality of life, the envy of the world, but ... Reply With Quote

Sep 18, 2020 | 08:07 4 Well western canuckistan is buffalo pasture, albeit one that has become worth money due to the power of inflation and the unstoppable money printing press. Anyways to expand on the vision, first we become the 51 state and then the water gets piped to where we have our winter home in milder climes. Right now most of this resource is unused and just flows on by to Hudson bay. That will continue to be the case in the future. Sask. government wants to waste billions of resources it does not have to set up irrigation to try and use some of that waste but that infrastructure is frozen 8 months of the year. Just can't get around that so this type of investment is always a guaranteed money loser. So might as well sell the water. Reply With Quote
Sep 18, 2020 | 08:31 5 FYI pipeline to the usa would have to be 20 foot diameter, not sure how many, the only other solution —- canals cement lined. Save the plovers 😊

Seems most minority groups don’t want pipelines, canals etc unless they can be paid off Reply With Quote

The US won't want our water. Some environmentalists will say its not organic (no offense to anyone) or come up with some reason that its not the right color, weight or that for some reason it doesn't run up hill like it should.

To me, the following is what we need to keep working on as I feel our fresh water is ending up in the ocean's from storms or being polluted by the ever increasing pissers and shitters that only have time for rally's or riots.

  • Sep 18, 2020 | 11:56 9 True Canadian style, we would sell it to the US cheaper then we sell it to ourselves, then they turn around and use it instead of the Ogallala aquifer because their resources are too precious, then they'd subsidize the cost to the corn and wheat farmers that would compete directly with Canadian producers, am I close?
