Conservatives Spin Oil on the West Coast
My old friend Rick helped clean up the crude oil from a small spill in the early 1980’s at Long Beach near tofino Pacific Rim National Park … it was an ugly job and a decade before exxon valdez up in Alaska.
You know about exxon valdez in alaska don’t you?
What do we know about the Harper Conservative Federal Government.
Well we know they are in power ……. unfortunately via an electoral system that is not truly representative of the people
WE know they extoll the tar sands which is environmentally unsustainable.
WE know they want oil on the west coast of Canada, pipelines and tankers for China.
We know they are an environmental embarrassment to the world and Canada by not supporting
the Kyoto Protocol when we should be leaders.
WE know the Harper Government now wants to rewrite the fisheries act and any other acts and laws that have the potential to slow economic development of oil pipelines pulp mills etc.
We know the Conservatives want to and are negating public debate and consultation, due process and transparency in forums that are not only environmental.
Many people, groups and organizations and previous governments have worked long and hard to ensure environmental integrity.
The 2012 Olympics had an introductory show that highlighted the environment with state of the art 3-D holograms of the orca and grizzly and spirit bears.
With no environment we just have the spin and the holograms.
Does that matter to you it matters to me.
Four previous fisheries ministers even of the same party do not agree with Harpers Government and their proposals
My conservative MP says I am not on the same page as him ………… I told him he was right.
You have to write and call all these dickheads and let them know what you think ……… tell them that you support oil on the west coast of Canada….. if you really do.
Enbridge has had major oil spills from ruptures in North America… research it …. Kinder Morgan too. Halliburton in the Camisea Project near Machu Picchu in Peru has had 5 pipeline ruptures since 2004.
There’s collateral damage, thats fact ….. is it something that you can live with? It might be alright if you are oblivious and don’t know what British Columbia has to offer.
The West Coast is a nutrient pool unique. Do you want an oil slick on it? What are you going to do?
