This is coming down to the wire - so much deliberately false information distributed by these health impact statements, most are simply corporate scientists bought by the companies to concoct wordy lies that sound "scientific", but have no basis in fact -- they want money!
Thanks Cal

It is common to lie about the environmental issues while awaiting the permit to build something to be approved. We had our own environmental crisis, the Talvivaara mine, and it has polluted almost 1/3 of the country already, and the situation is not getting better, but worse. The environmental officials are too often too lazy to study the applications thoroughly and investigate the site area and all that is connected to it. The Keystone XL seems just the same kind of environmental disaster just waiting to happen, and it must not be accepted. There ate too large areas it can pollute, too many wildlife species to be destroyed, if it came into being. We already are losing too many fauna and flora to extinction, we do not need more threats on nature.and wildlife. The decision makers need to study the spills and destructions that have already taken place, before they allow the Keystone XL any permits.
Shared and noted, petion signed earlier.

Noted. It's good to read that protesters far outnumbered supporters of the pipeline, and were there to give testimony with photos and facts. From all I've been reading, the protesters always outnumber supporters and have proven the number of jobs is far less than supporters claim.
