Time to communicate . . .


CALL YOUR MP or write or e-mail, or do all three. According to Mike Hudema of Greenpeace Canada who has a post on TSS, aka TAR SANDS SOLUTIONS NETWORK you should check out, then get hold of your worthy MP. “Tar Sands spills – Over 1.5 million litres and still spilling!!” shows the callous inertia of the Alberta government and the Stevie chimps, especially as the Stevie chimps are doing everything they can to pipe the poison every direction but North. It's even got an active counter on the leakage — it gets worse while you watch and they're not doing anything about it, maybe hoping that winter will freeze everything, or that it'll be so cold there'll be nobody around to check.

Right now in Alberta, tar sands bitumen is spilling into the environment at four different sites, one directly underneath a lake. All four spills have been spilling for months and the Alberta and Canadian governments know all about it, they are just powerless to stop them.

Well, maybe the light of publicity might help. Your MP is only a couple of clicks away. Help make it happen.

Just curious as the source of Greenpeace's information.

Greed is far more important, than oil spills and pipe bursts. At what point will common sense trump greed? We can't drink oil nor eat money. At the rate Canada and the world are poisoning our water? War's will be over clean drinking water, rather than wars over oil. Greed is so rabid in Canada, it's sickening.

It's as they say? Man is the most destructive animal on earth and, the most stupid ones at that.

The latest is that CNRL has been "ordered" to drain the lake beneath which the leak is and then find a way to staunch its flow, said now to be down to 20 barrels per day. No one, however, can independently verify that the leak has slowed. Something about letting civilians prowl active air weapons ranges.
