Oil Sands Propaganda
Quoted from the AAEV Environmental Voters Party of Canada) : “Harper intends to make toothless most of the legal and regulatory framework that protects Canada’s environment and animals. The Species at Risk Act, the Fisheries Act, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, the National Energy Board, all these and more are being gutted, hamstrung, neutered to give Harper-friendly industries unfettered license to degrade, to destroy, to kill the environment and animals. All to fuel their reckless drive for profit – and damn the cost!”
In a message from Director, Liz White:
“The Harper Conservatives have declared war on environmental charities. They’ve threatened them with the Canada Revenue Agency persecuting them and revoking their charitable status if they speak out honestly and accurately about Canada’s most environmentally destructive industries. It’s for this reason that Dr. David Suzuki was forced to resign from his own foundation. It was the only way he could be free to speak out.”
“The Minister at the Canada Revenue Agency which the Conservatives will use to persecute environmental charities is none other than Gail Shea, the former Fisheries Minister who waged war on harp seals and grey seals with deceit, bogus science, and baseless slander against animal protection groups. She’ll relish persecuting green charities.”
We continue to be inundated with high cost television ads touting the benefits of continued Oil Sands development and expansion. Our tax dollars fuel the placement of this advertisement. We continue to have our own Canadian researchers allegedly gagged when new findings need to be revealed to the public.
We continue to bathed in propaganda…..what we are not bathed in are facts….
As a concerned Environmentalist I strongly suggest that the sites below be visited.
