So After All The Lawsuits And Bad Jokes...
I took a drive, and got some fresh air, snapped a few pictures (Yes, those are buffalo!).
I'm tired of Alberta being made out to be the big bad polluter, that is ruining our children's lives. Seriously, I'm sick of it.
I know it sells well in Ontario and Quebec for the Liberals, but people in Alberta are hard working, caring, and generous. We are also conservators, we like our land, rivers, and air to be clean. Farmers are the best conservators of our land, they make their living off of it, why would they kill it? In fact most Albertan's I know have a deep connection to the land, not the concrete like in Toronto.
Years ago, we drove across Canada to PEI, with 3 dogs. We stopped by rivers and let the dogs drink that water in every province we visited except Ontario and Quebec. We would not let our dogs drink the brown, smelly river water, it was disgusting.
Manufacturing has killed rivers and lakes in Ontario, but Alberta oil sands are now the big bad polluters? We are "easy" targets for ignorant Canadians, who will blindly believe "big oil" with their "big profits" are responsible for all their problems. Bet most central Canadians don't even know that they get their "blood" oil from Arab countries, not from safe, secure, freedom loving, Alberta.
Dion came here and told us we were disgraceful. That went over well. NOT! He has said nothing about our 4 BILLION dollar plan to capture carbon and expand transportation. He's too busy deploring a lawsuit against his party. Environmentalists have also been silent, except to say, carbon capture might not work. Wait until we decide to build a nuclear plant up north, that should get them going.
So, how many smog days has Toronto had so far this year? Is Lake Erie still a "dead" lake? Just thinking, maybe Ontario and Quebec should get their own provinces in order before they slag Alberta. I really hate that the Liberals with their NEP II plan, have started the east/west argument again, it's disgusting.
Oh, and those pictures? I lied, they aren't from around Edmonton, although they could be, nope, they are from reclaimed land by Syncrude, up there at the nasty oil sands. But, Dion wouldn't know that, he never went there.
