Northern Gateway Pipeline Protect BC and our Coast

(scroll down for Pipeline Petitions, news and links)
Enbridge isn't fit to build sausage casings. In Alberta on June 18th, an Enbridge pipeline leaked 230,000 litres of heavy crude oil  Enbridge oil leak at a pumping station near Elk Point. This oil spill follow another spill of  spilled 28,000 barrels in northern Alberta Read more Another Alberta pipeline spilled 19,500 barrels in May at Rainbow Lake was only spotted by chance. Source That makes 100 oil and gas leaks in Canada this last year alone. Source
Yup, another Enbridge oil spill by. This time in Wisconsin Friday July 27th, spilling another 190,000 litres of oil. The US shut Enbridge down upon further review.  This on the anniversary of millions of barrels contaminating the Kalamazoo, or which Enbridge knew about small cracks in the pipeline for five years.
Also in July, a 40 year old Enbridge chemical spill seeping contamination in Regina halted construction. And.. Dangerously exposed Enbridge pipelines in Ontario in what is soon to be a national park.
Our gov. answer, call anyone who opposes these bitumen dreams an extremist? Cut air pollution monitoring, cuts marine pollution monitoring, cuts environmental scientist, who else is a threat to bitumen pipeline profits? FisheriesFirst NationsUnionsHealthcareMigrant Workers Rights, WomenAuditor General, will Churches be next since they have voiced their opposition?
Have you seen 805-Oil-Spill-Enbridge's Northern Gateway Pipeline propaganda commercials?  This version is much closer to the truth. Although they say "could" damage. With 804 (+1) (update +2) oils spills based on their own records, Enbridge "will" damage BC.

On a good note, I seen we are no longer bombarded by Enbridge Northern Gateway commercials.
And it seems Alberta tarsands / oilsands have seen record losses this last quarter. The fact that other countries are flourishing with clean energy alternatives makes this devastation all the more asinine.

Too true! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGrgxaewsiQ

Considering Christy Clark, our BC Premier was undemocratically "appointed", and still has her involvement of the BC Rail privatization scandal hanging over her head, we can expect no less. Clark replaces chief staff with Tory strategist former Enbridge lobbyist
I've learned it's the chemicals they need to add to bitumen that makes it the seizure / cancer / deathly toxic sludge we see in the Kalamazoo. When it's transported by truck or train, there is no need for these additives. Seems even the industry doesn't know what's in it! Source 
Northern Gateway Pipeline is NOT worth the dire risks to health, economy and land. Risking 20 000 existing jobs and $ billions in existing industries for 560 Enbridge pipeline jobs is ridiculous. When asked "Do you support the Northern Gateway Pipeline", results show Only seven per cent said they supported the pipeline unreservedly. Source 80% of Canadians oppose the Northern Gateway Pipeline. 1: Northern Gateway Pipeline Poll. 2: Northern Gateway Pipeline Poll, 3: Northern Gateway Pipeline Poll and their proposed 200+ supertankers threatening our BC coast. Industry funded opinion polls released were found to be untrue. Enbridge has had 803+ oil spills (based on their own records (update 805) (update
806) . 180 First Nations tribes who would be most affected stand united against these bullies. Yet Harper labels those opposed as foreign funded radical environmentalists. $Billions in existing industries are threatened. Of 4000+ speakers scheduled at the hearings, 12 are foreign funded, all 12 are big oil backers. Yet the bullying continues. Now our Canadian, uh, Harper government wants to sanction First Nations funding for opposing the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline. Alberta commonly sells Waivers of Law to Corps (*I read 4000+ to date) When Amnesty needs to help the poisoned and dying communities subject to these practices downstream, our government's answer is 20 years of litigation.
The public hearing has virtually gagged all testimony to silence environmental, scientific, economic and health concerns. Moratoriums keeping oil tankers out of BC waters has mysteriously gone missing. Endangered Orca has legal protection again this week in court. 805-Oil-Spill-Enbridge and Canada's "Harper government" troll off to China to sell a pipe dream, Canada's resources and our sovereignty in exchange paying $1000+ a day for rented panda's.  By all accounts, what our gov. is subjecting us to is illegal and quite frankly treasonous.  B.C. oil tanker ban motion passes in Commons. If this "deal" ever comes to be more than oil exec pillow-talk, we will know for certain that Canada is no longer a democracy.

The chart to the left shows the current damage and the proposed damage
of bitumen tarsands extraction and projections.
*The list of the waiver of law link is dead, if someone knows where to find it, please send me the link)
Speaking of democracy.. Listening to our parliament on CPAC I see there are deep concerns about this budget and the attempted manipulation of our democracy. Nationwide protests were spurred by this "bill C38"The blackoutspeakout.ca saw 500+ websites go dark in protest of the Harper government's proposed Bill C38. Fair wages, citizens rights, pensions, protection to water, governance and our democracy would all be compromised or destroyed with this budget" bill. 400+ page "omnibill" and 3/4 of it destroys laws in order to circumvent Canadian's protection our land and civil rights. Corp. shill at it's finest. Our gov. answer is not to make it right, but to go on a national propaganda blitz. War and Prisons are the only winners in this "bill" What can we expect from a mans who owes everything to prison profiteers and bitumen. (Conservatives have spent $26 million on "job action" propaganda alone while making the average job pay $10 000 less than before 08). Do we really want to hand over our protections, rights and democracy for corp. tarsands profits for China and 805-oil-spill-Enbridge? The threats to BC economy and our coast for an estimated 100+ pipe jobs per province is asinine. This bill c38 would destroy BC and Canada's economy.
This "Budget Bill" is the biggest threat Canada has ever witnessed. The Stop Bill C-38 online petition has received 36000+ signatures in only days. Please sign and share. Link

During a time in Canada when the crime rates are the LOWEST since 1970 Harper cuts social and public serves while investing taxpayers money in more in jails. $20 000 000 000 of taxpayers money just to build the jails Canada currently does not need... privatized prisons... harsher youth sentencing... cuts to public services... sounds like more private returns with the ultimate public liability... sound lucrative for someone who has no soul. What other reason could there be for these diabolical actions?

Texas tried it... cost billions... crime grew... switched to reform and treatment... saved billions. Texas gov. wrote Harper to tell him the error of this bill as did many of our public servants here in Canada

That is approaching triple the ratio of 1976, which was around 31 times.

Corporate Tyranny in our Food
Do we want big corporations like Monsanto ruling our food and land? Monsanto already hold a key FDA position in the US. Hundreds of thousands of deaths in India have been attributed to Monsanto. Mutated crops are being found in countries who have rejected the sterile genetically modified round up ready patented crops of Monsanto. The tyranny of corporatism does not end at our oil industry in Canada. Currently Canadian farmers are fighting to stop Harper from destroying their Wheat Board: http://stopthesteamroller.ca/
Democracy and Freedom of Speech are no longer Canadian Standards
"President of the Canadian Wheat Board stated that a dual marketing system would be "as wrong as it is un-Canadian" and could harm the ability of Western Canadian farmers "to deliver the world-class grain for which we are known." That same month, the Board was faced with a “gag order” from the federal government, which was later found to be unconstitutional by the federal court." Source.

Today The Harper Governement forced the closure of Canada's Wheat Board, despite massive opposition from farmers and citizens. In a fair and just society, farmers would have been given a vote. Canadian farmers should have been given the choice.Source
Will this action going to open the floodgates for Monsanto's patented sterile "round up ready" genetically engineered "food" to contaminate everything and make corporate slaves out of all our farmers. They did it in the US and India and will do it here. Entire countries are standing up against this abomination, but our "leader" is corporate shill as they have proven time and time again.
