It's the other dirty little secret of the oil sands: Foreign companies and their shareholders are benefitting from the huge dividends produced by Alberta's vast bitumen sand deposits while Canadians are stuck with the vast bill for the cleanup.

It's like a latter-day update on one of those country and western hurtin' songs we love so much out here in Wild Rose Country: They get the goldmine, we get the shaft.

So while it's shocking, the facts released in a report yesterday by three prominent environmental organizations aren't exactly a shock.
