Pro

The XL keystone pipeline wil create minimum infrastructure in NOrth America. This will indeed be eco friendly and save carbon emissions from trucks, ships, trains etc. The oil will also be handled by Canadians so that we control what we are selling and we are not jeopardizing our power of authority

Con

Canadians cannot be trusted with oil. I should know, I am one.

Pro

I will refute the negatives argument by stating the following. According to the Trans Canada website. The oil will be handled by the U.S. but controlled by Canada to my understanding. this will allow a fair reasoning of responsibility to be held between these two countries.

Con

Objection: Canadians are snakes and liars (much like the jews are to Cartman) and therefore, the Trans Canada website cannot be trusted.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to pro because con used racism by saying "Canadians are snakes and liars." Grammer to pro was determined by copy and pasting into Word. Convincing arguments is to pro, as con didn't back up any of his claims, and his points were really just racism, and pointless opinions that held no relevance to the argument Sources to pro because con didn't even bother to relate anything to sources, whereas pro linked his arguments to sources and in R2 where he links his source to a website, therefore trumping cons amount of sources, which was none.
