And here's a sleeper issue, Harper mentioning the oil sands in his news conference with Bush:
We discussed the critical role Canada — in particular our oilsands — can play in providing energy security. The president and I have agreed to task our officials to provide a more forward-looking approach, focused on the environment, climate change, air quality and energy issues on which our governments can cooperate.Guess who had dinner with "Steve" last night? That's right, the Halliburton oil man himself, Vice Cheney. Bet those oil sands are of great interest to the oil administration (and Halliburton). Wonder what Dick's got in store for Alberta?
