Eco-nuts and Quebec want our dirty oil banned, let's go for it, let's stop selling our oil and gas to the US, tomorrow. Just for one week. See we care about the polar bears and our millions of miles of trees and our untouched wilderness. Have you noticed that every time oil goes up the TSX also goes up? Funny that.
Save Us Unholy Sinners!
Canadian church leaders head to northern Alberta tomorrow to explore the theological, moral and ethical implications of the oilsands.
The clergy aren't the only people interested in the oilsands this week.
Down in Washington, D.C., one of North America's top energy research consultants will testify before the U.S. Congress on the importance of the oilsands to future energy supply.
Canada now supplies 19% of U.S. energy needs, but if oilsands production is accelerated, that could rise to 37%, according to a new report by IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA).
That in turn would translate into an injection of billions of dollars into the Canadian economy. Alberta isn't the only province that benefits. This massive industrial project creates a national demand for jobs, technology and manufactured goods.
The enormous tax revenue generated by all this activity benefits everyone.
Yikes, they want us to pollute more!! How many smog days has Alberta had? NONE. How many smog days for Toronto only? Too many to count. Last trip across Canada, we stopped at streams to let our dogs drink, until we hit Ontario, no way were we letting our dogs drink out of those brown polluted rivers.
The solution is getting back to nature. This article gives us an idea of how we can start.
Bison turn back the clock on a patch of prairie
CALGARY — In a remote part of the already remote Grasslands National Park in the southwest corner of Saskatchewan, a herd of plains bison is in the midst of calving season with another bumper crop of babies.
Three years ago, 72 pure-blooded animals were introduced to the 181-square-kilometre refuge as part of a Parks Canada initiative to bring large herbivores to an area that hasn't felt bison hooves in more than 120 years.
Now, that little herd has become prolific beyond expectations.
The animals in Grasslands were shipped as two-year-olds from Elk Island National Park near Edmonton, where Mr. Olson was based for 25 years. The youngsters acclimatized in a paddock before stepping beyond the gate where they had to learn how to behave like bison without guidance from adults.
Yahoo, I bet the eco-nuts love this, bison back on the prairies. I actually love it too. The more bison the better. They are actually a really healthy eat. HA!
They should be allowed to free range, like this:
I bet the eco-nuts are ecstatic about this herd of 300 Wood Bison.....NO? Oops, guess they don't want us to know that they are part of an oilsands reclamation project.
It's bad enough that Obama is trying to destroy our economy with "Buy American" protectionism. When Canadians like the Bloc in Quebec want to shut down the oilsands without even seeing them, ignorance is bliss. Quebec, listen to this, Alberta sends 8 billion into the equalization fund, you get 8 billion, do you see any connection? So sure we can shut down, but then you do not get 8 billion. Think about that, let it rattle around in your heads, prove to me you are not stupid.
