Reversing the Flow? Quebec Says 'No' to Tar Sands Pipelines

Business  (tags: Enbridge, line 9, Quebec, Tar Sands, Trailbreaker )

- 1951 days ago -
Bringing tar sands oil out east is a bad deal for the climate, a bad deal for the economy, and a bad deal for the 99 municipalities, the 18 First Nation communities, and the 9 million people who live within 50km of the pipeline route.

Thank you, everyone. The mining, transporting, and refining of tar sands oil is one of the most destructive projects ever, in so many ways. I fight it any way I can, and I'm so glad others are fighting like hell against its many tentacles.

There is no stopping these oil moguls from doing what they want. They invested in politics to have things go their way. Millions of dollars just happen to drop on the floor after having a meeting with our honest political leaders, that are enployees of the people, which they have all seemed to have forgotten and do the bidding of the few, with added perts, such as subsidies. The XL pipe-line was given approval in 2010, with a completion date in 2014. Now that Obama won his second term, he we give his approval for the Northern half as early as Febuary. Peaceful protest will not do the job

Nice to see people standing up to such an ecological boondoggle.

Noted & posted. Of course the point might be moot come this March when the State Department gives its ruling on the Keystone's new proposed direction through Nebraska. It is said that the new route will avoid the major aquifer. The governor of Nebraska has already faxed Obama and has given his approval.
