Hogan has nothing to do with a east-west pipeline

There's no need for an additional east-west pipeline for the foreseeable future.  There's barely a need for the existing one, as eastern Canada is well-supplied with US oil right now.

Double bull crap, Alberta has never done anything for Ontario

Saying something like this makes you look like a complete moron.

Central Canada did not set out to find settlers to populate the prairies out of the goodness of their hearts.  Central Canadian producers have done very well making finished goods from the raw materials obtained from the regions. In earlier times that may have been principally grain, but since then other products as well.  And while Ontario may have subsidized the early days of the Alberta oil industry, but the 1970s it turns out that Ontario was very well served by having access to oil that wasn't subject to Middle Eastern instability. (Quebec refineries at the time were also receiving Alberta oil... sporadically at best... by tanker, via Vancouver and the Panama Canal.)  Ontario was already receiving oil below world market price by the 1970s, and of course that culminated in Ontario getting oil for drastically below the world price at the height of the NEP.

As well, the revenue generated by the oil industry has benefited all of Canada.
