Sorry, folks, but time and time again our federal government does not heed the majority will. Otherwise, the tar sands would have been shut down long ago and of course the seal slaughter would be ancient history.... There's a lot more....but what the hell............

Is everyone paying attention to the very first sentence, in this article?
'The U.S. Dept. of Defence is the world's largest comsumer of petroleum.'
When you consider this fact, doesn't it put a different spin on the oil situation?

Definitely signed! It's a hugely destructive practice!

I watched a very sobering documentary about the Alberta sands the other day. What shone through clearly is that local people are making lots of money, everything costs more than it does elsewhere. House prices are extortionate! People living in one room, the very basic, are paying thousands for the privilege every month. Trees are being cut down like there is no tomorrow! When some local men were asked about the destruction of the environment their answers were they'll be dead soon and the problem will be the next generation's to deal with. They are making money and that is good.

I've been writing letters for years...and signing petitions, but the fact of the matter Pm Harper is from there, and heck we've got medical insurance don't we--so what ya complaining about?

Write to OBAMA and let him if he makes even a gesture towards the tar sands, he's TOAST.
[and BURNED toast, too--no pun intended, seriously]

[I know too many people who've gone out there for the $$$.. and 6 months later, are diagnosed with cancer.]

Namaste! xo
