Difficult one really. I can see you being against it if you live in Canada, destroying huge areas of natural beauty but i guess it will have to happen one day unless we develop new forms of renewable energy in the near future which in my opinion i really can't see happening. There is enough oil around to last us 100's of years and the Canadian tar sands make a large percentage of that up. It's getting costly and fast! to extract conventional oil so major tar sand extraction is close.
What are your views?
I'm a first year student studying Energy Engineering by the way.
