This is an experiment in presenting Brian Zinchuk's regular column, From the Top of the Pile. The text version of this column was published March 30. The video features photos and video clips taken in the Saskatchewan oilpatch over the last 12 years, and the end includes discussion of how Keystone XL, now under construction, plays into this. Tell us what you think of this in the comments, and share if you like it. Just because Keystone XL is now being built, finally, it doesn't get the East off Saudi oil.
