When government no longer represents the people, it's time to overturn it.

When elected officials no longer represent the people who elected them, but outside interests of Big Oil & Gas, and other Mega Cops, you no longer have a Democracy...it's time to vote the Yoyos out...Power to the People.

Refer to this site as they claim they will upgrade everything and monitor everything 24/7. Here's the site:http://www.vancouversun.com/business/2035/Northern+Gateway+pipeline+will+protect+environment/8760224/story.html
That's all well and good until we learn that they will hook up with the existing lines in Alberta and eventually through Sarnia, ON. These lines use the old 30" pipes with the corrosive drag resistance agents that are necessary to make the heavier bitumen crude flow. It is the same aged configuration they tried to use at Kalamazoo, MI.
The cubic weight of the bitumen crude coupled with the friction caused by the drag resistance agents caused the pipes to rupture. It took the two days to locate it. Even now the environment has not returned to any normal semblance of its original nature.
This whole proposal threatens major aquifers across Canada. There are several directly in its path and south of its path. Here in Southern Ontario alone; a major leak threatens the Guelph Amabel Aquifer and the Oak Ridges Moraine north of Toronto. A spill threatens the fresh water for 16 million people.
Are we ready to risk that not to mention the irreparable damage done to all things in the environment? I want more assurances than Enbridge or Athabaska or the Federal Government is willing to give me. I refuse to shut up and drink the Koolaid and neither should you. Let's get vocal.
