According to data obtained by the Reuters news agency, the U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates America’s oil imports from Canada will almost double by 2025, from 1.6 million barrels a day to 2.7 million barrels a day. The vast majority of that increased production will come from Alberta’s oil sands, which are expected to produce as much as three million barrels a day by 2020 . . .
