    No it was in conjunction with the length of her term and how much of that term was spent in a controlled parameter prison before transferring to a healing lodge.

    The language that a prisoner must not spend much of their sentence in a healing lodge did not exit until this amendment. A healing lodge will now be a "finishing" step in the prison system rather than a place a prisoner can serve most of their term.

    Then why would you quote something unrelated?

    You could stop importing any oil and you would still have over production. Exporting is a better investment than domestic initives believe it or not.

    You had specifically questioned whether the policy was amended to include mention of controlled parameter and it was in conjunction with other thresholds in regard to future tranfers so it is related.

    There's this place called Saudi Arabia. They're pieces of shit and we should stop supporting them which should be the priority of a group of people whom claim to be very concerned about human rights.

    You also can't actually have true overproduction. That's a bit of a myth.

    and it doesn't include a requirement for controlled perimeters. So I'm not sure why you're dwelling on that.

    It absolutely does. The policy amends how a prisoner from a controlled perimeter prison moves to non-controlled perimeter prison.

    The quote you provided specifically says defined and not controlled.

    Well Alberta is producing X amount for whatever economic reason and it's way way way too much to be consumed by the whole Canadian economy even if all imports were stopped. I agree that the Saudis as well as a couple other countries that are currently exporting to Canada suck.

    Good news. Oil doesn't go bad, and we aren't going to stop using it anytime soon.

    Well, if you read the exchange that was the cornerstone of what you're saying is the drastically improved policy.

    Me: and it doesn't include a requirement for controlled perimeters. So I'm not sure why you're dwelling on that.
    You: It absolutely does. The policy amends how a prisoner from a controlled perimeter prison moves to non-controlled perimeter prison.
    Me: The quote you provided specifically says defined and not controlled.

    Oil exports and the secondary industries and services are a vital part of the Canadian GDP. You stop exporting oil you will become Venezuela #2.

    The policy amendment is to how prison inmates are transfer from a prison (which has a controlled perimeter) to healing lodge (which has a defined but not controlled perimeter).

    You said over production is a myth. It's the number by which your economy is in surplus and that's why they are over producing. If you reduce that (because it doesn't go bad) it puts your exports and the secondary industries and services in the red. So it's not a myth. It's the reality which keeps the industry viable.

    I'm a little confused by your language. If you reduce what?

    Rachel Notley claims we are basically giving our oil away for free... yet the corporations are still happy to produce it and are making a profit off it.

    Anyone else have a sneaking suspicion the oil companies are behind this to inflate the prices?

    You are "losing money" compared to others in market so they are turning out more to make up for the sluggish price.

    You really don't have the infrastructure to take it out of Alberta in a timely fashion. That's why anywhere eastern of Ontario is cheaper to buy from US and even Saudiassholia even though you have a surplus of oil in Alberta.

    I believe there's a west-east pipeline that isn't used at full capacity. Even if there's no pipeline at all, build one. Problem solved and you've created some jobs along the way.
