Saudi Arabia is America’s second largest source of foreign oil behind Canada. Less understood perhaps, is that Canada itself spends some $26 billion a year importing oil from other countries and some $8 billion of that comes from middle east exporters including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Algeria, Angola. Money that could be kept at home to fund life-sustaining and enriching programs instead. More excellent reasons to end our self-destructive reliance on oil.
