US Shale Gas Comes to Ontario


CALGARY — Struggling natural gas markets in Western Canada stand to take a further body blow this winter as infrastructure expansions bring northeast U.S. shale gas to Ontario, says a report from U.S. energy market analysts.

Hey, I'll heat the house with US shale gas.  Do I owe Calgary a living?  This is great, the US gets all the earthquakes, and in the process learns something about Precambrian geology.  We get the cheap gas.  It's a lot better than importing electricity from the Ohio Valley, where we get to choke on all the smog.

If we get flooded with cheap shale gas, then we don't have to do our own injection into the Hamilton Fault.  This might keep away the earthquakes for another year or two.  :)
