    Cheney joins the oil sands pilgrimage - By BARRIE MCKENNA, Globe and Mail
    U.S. Vice-President will visit Alberta as a secure energy supply leapfrogs up the list of U.S. priorities

    Free trade in oil, fair trade in softwood - Toronto Star Editorial
    During the Clinton administration, NAFTA was approved by Congress on a bipartisan basis. We supported the agreement and still do. The Star suggests that Klein should tell Cheney that "if Americans want Canada to be their gas station on fair trade terms that serve both countries, they ought to be prepared to shop, fairly, at out lumber yard as well. Free trade in oil and gas should go hand-in-hand with fair trade in softwood. Klein should remind Cheney that our lumber industry is not asking for special treatment, only basic fairness."
