Therefore, Canada should build the Keystone XL pipeline because the supply and demand need calls for it, it is the safest way to transport oil, and it has many economic benefits. Canada’s supply of oil is greater than its demand and building the Keystone XL pipeline would fix this issue. Firstly, Canada currently has a lot of oil, the 3rd largest oil reserve in the world (“The Great…” DVD).

The more developed countries (MDC) aren't the ones having to the problem. MDC's actually pay their farmers not to grow as much of a crop and will buy it from other counties.
