Refinery sale could result in closure

As I read the article in The Citizen about the possible sale of the Husky refinery, I am concerned. Since the North American Free Trade Agreement of the Brian Mulroney government, British Columbia has lost four refineries.

That's right, folks, - we had four refineries in the Vancouver area, one here in Prince George and one in Taylor. Canada doesn't have enough refinery capacity to meet its existing needs. If these refineries were still in operation, Canada wouldn't have to import fuel. These refineries were closed because of down sizing not that the need wasn't there. They were closed because of greed.

I believe its time for Canadians to start investing in Canadian industry. If the Americans buy this refinery, they will shut it down.
