OCTOBER 20, 2009, 5:44 A.M. ET BP May Look At Building Position In Canada Oil Sands
LONDON (Dow Jones)--BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward said Tuesday the U.K. oil giant may look at increasing its drilling position in Canada.
"We have a modest position in Canada's oil sands. We can see if we can make it even bigger over time," Hayward told an industry conference here.
He also said governments, particularly in the U.S. and Europe, need to play "a more active and pragmatic role" in helping the oil industry meet rising energy demands while mitigating carbon emissions.

Bashers work to bring the price down to either increase their position at the expense of others or help a Short make their bones.
The Bashers Handbook
Lesson 1: Remember, BASHERS NEVER Bash A BAD STOCK. Check the boards for stocks with no potential. They never have any Bashers. Bashers only go after stocks that are moving up or have excellent potential to do so. Bashers work to bring the price down to either increase their position at the expense of others or help a Short make their bones.
Lesson 2: BASHERS ALWAYS BRING UP OLD NEWS THAT YOU HAVE HEARD MANY TIMES. New startup companies always have a few bits of bad news. The Basher will post this over and over again. Unsophisticated Bashers will try to freshen up old news with a new date or by-line in an attempt to fool you.
Lesson 3: BASHERS POST MANY TIMES A DAY. They try to wear you out. They comment on everything, every other post, and can answer every question. THEY KNOW IT ALL! There is no positive comment they won't Bash. They try to control the board. True longs may have to confront the Bashers or they will appear to the newbies as being the people with all the information. This is best accomplished by posting positive, well researched data on the company, repetitively, while trying hard not to engage the Bashers in direct repartee. REMEMBER - LONGS... RESIST USING THE BASHERS ALIAS!
