Of course, none of us will be around to see that. Canada has the second largest oil reserve in the world and has an estimated 300+ million barrels that require more expensive production. The government cites we have enough oil available to fuel Canada and the US demands for 100 years. That is enough time to develop alternate fuels or completely evolve the ways we get around. Gulfstream Aerospce recently completes a transatlantic flight in a G450 using alternate fuels (biofuel) so change is happening.
