Also, both are trying to screw the Russians(who are dependent on oil money).

Russia hasn't nearly as negatively impacted as Canada, so far. Look at the Canadian dollar plummeting compared to USD. I always thought Russia was more known for natural gas than oil, granted I haven't researched that at all.

Seriously, compare Russia to where they were 10 years ago, then do the same for Canada. Stuck in Western media talking points & cold war mindset
