Why doesn’t Canada just build their pipeline through another country?

    Exactly which other country would you suggest. Before you answer, you might want to look at a map of Canada, and neighboring countries.

    Canada could run their pipeline due west to Vancouver, but it would be more expensive, and adding oil loading facilities to a lovely harbor city like that would be ugly and risk spillage.  Much cheaper and easier for Canada to pipe it thru the US and let the US take the risks.

    I don't think you quite understand the law of pyshics

    The only land country connected to Canada IS the USA, there are two oceans seperating Canada from Europe and Asia. You cannot build a pipeline under water, its physically not possible...

    Oil has been shipped from Canada to the US via rail for decades. Guess who makes most of the money from it? Warren Buffet. Now Mr. Buffet doesn't want to see his investment lose money, so he has always been keen to terminate the project, and now his efforts have met with success.

    They could pipe it across to their own sea coast, Build refineries in BC, or sell the sand tar crude directly in cargo ships to China.

    Oil is sold and priced on the world market. Always has been.

    Maybe you should look at a map of North America and give them that information they are lead by a liberal government so we know they are not to bright.

    What other country can they build it through? The US is the only country that borders Canada.

    It might be a bit of a stretch to get it to go through Zimbabwe or Nepal

    Of course that's absurd, but why not build it to one of their own ports?

    What's wrong with building it where it's already contracted and work has begun? 

    And, obviously, Canada borders no other country.
