Canada's oil patch (Alberta primarily) is currently experiencing unprecedented distress - Canadian oil prices set record lows yesterday at $8/barrel, dramatically below break-even costs:

Western Canadian Select (WCS) was changing hands at one point as low as $7.63 US per barrel, down $4.60 from Tuesday's level. The U.S. benchmark known as West Texas Intermediate (WTI) also fell to below $22 a barrel, a level it has not hit since 2003.

Companies here are going to go bust. "High cost" producers everywhere are in big trouble. This combination of events is the stuff of the Saudis' & Russians' wildest dreams.

This is going to make life hard for a lot of Albertans.
