In an age when the words "tar" and "oil" applied to "sands" can delineate opposing sides; when "Keystone" elicits every emotion except indifference; when a proud province becomes a global petro power and citizens debate the legacy of Big Oil, how do journalists balance coverage of the oil patch in the face of a massive industry with powerful roots in their community? What is the view from afar?
