Canadian Govt Removes Protection on Lakes and Rivers Paving Way for Industrial Destruction!!
(snip)

Transport Minister Denis Lebel suggested that the changes could ease the burden on companies seeking approval on new industrial projects such as oilsands development or mining extraction.

For example, under the existing law, Transport Canada had urged Shell Canada to provide more information about a proposed “diversion” of the Muskeg River for a new oilsands project.

While this process would continue, future project approvals on that river or many others would not be subject to a review under the new law unless Transport Canada expands its list of protected bodies of water.

Thank you Heil Harper for making it easier for industry to destroy our waterways. How considerate you are of Canadians and the environment. Harperites rejoice!!!

Thanks for the 5 stars!! hf

This is very important for Canadians to know. Millions aren't even aware of the destruction to our way of life that seemingly occurs on a daily basis. Harper is raping this nation!

Do you live in the area where the oil sands are being developed, or are you a thousand miles away?

Please prove that there is serious long term harm. yes, I know that it looks horrible now. But like clear cutting of a forest, a few decades later it looks a lot difference.

If you have proof that there is long term damage, then please let me know. I always try to keep an open mind. But I've learned that the more environmentalist scream, the less they actually have to scream about. Crying wolf again and again leads too many people to ignore the cry.

I live in the Great Lakes region. I used to live on the St. Lawrence which has cleaned up over the years (no thanks to the current government) but used to be a cesspool of industrial waste from paper mills, aluminium smelters, chemical companies and more.

My worry is that this is making it too easy for industry (not just tar sands) to abuse our waterways by not having to go through the red tape, regulation, etc. that is there today. The current process is lengthy and costly to industry and that is how it should be in order to discourage abuse. Instead of tightening regulations Harper is loosening them. I have a hard time understanding how this could be good for the people of Canada. It is only good for BIG business...........foreign business.

Fascism defined.

Destroyed? Mining companies are poised to turn more than 20 lakes across Canada into toxic waste dumps by using a special exemption to federal environmental rules, critics say. [link to www.canada.com]

And now, with anywhere from 3-5 billion barrels of crude discovered
off the shore of NFLD., they can pollute the shit out the Maritimes.

Thanks for posting OP.
