I can't stop laughing....oh please stop...

In response to the Green Party announcement about ending billions in taxpayer subsidies to Canada's (read Alberta, err Calgary) oil industry the voice of big oil had this to say;

it drew a decided shrug from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. "We don't believe there are any subsidies to the oil-gas sector right now,"said CAPP vice-president Greg Stringham

Oh puuuuulllleaaaaaaase he said in he best Roger Rabbit, make it stop. I can't write for laughing so hard. Of course he doesn't believe he is subsidized, why would he. Never let the facts get in the way of an Alberta soundbite. You see that comment might work in Calgary, but this is a national media story so watch for the blowback when the National Media start looking into the facts.
