We've been fighting against Tar Sands
in Canada for quite awhile now, for all
the right reasons. Now, there is plain evidence of
the effect Tar Sands are having on wildlife. and it
was predictable. I don;t ecpect that Big Oil is going
to take it's eyes off their bottom line, but we'll keep
fighting them all the same.
Thanks, Cal.

I don't like the fact that humans think that just because we can speak we have the right to loiter over animals and sniff out their lives. All animals are created by God for a reason and I know killing them is not what He had in mind. Sadly noted, thank you Cal.

This is sad news and all because of the greed of man and this pollution will take decades to reverse.
