When oil prices are high then yea Alberta does it more share but when oil prices crashes , Alberta is saved by being part of Canada....is that what you mean jimmy? If not I don't get it....

no what I mean is  the whole idea that "Albertans do more" is an insult to the rest of the country. The fact is, and its a fact, no individual Albertan does any more than any other tax paying Canadian. So to say that they do more, carry Canada, yada yada is just self serving tripe, and very destructive, mostly to Albertans psyche. They are an angry group, worked themselves into a frenzy based on a bunch of bs.

So many intelligent/brave canadiansn now speaking out / standing up for our country....

 

More than 20 Indigenous youth are blocking the entrance to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources on Blanshard Street to deliver a message to the Minister Michelle Mungall and Premier John Horgan.

 

The protesters delivered a letter to Mungall that stated Indigenous youth were not only inheriting a climate crisis “driven by fossil fuel projects like [Coastal GasLink] CGL, but Canada’s legacy of colonization, genocide and gendered violence against Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people.” In other words, they are supporting Wet’suwet’en sovereignty and opposing RCMP actions.

 

The letter includes a list of the four demands made by the Hereditary Chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation, including ceasing construction of CGL’s pipeline, that RCMP withdrawn for the area and that all levels of government, RCMP and CGL respect the Nations sovereignty and refrain from using force to access the land or to remove supporters.

What about the clear cutting of mountain sides? I know that's illegal but go up white swan road down by canal flats and you'll see it plain to day. 

Oil and logging arnt much different cause I know of a few areas that haven't been replanted like your suppose to do after logging an area lol

jesus. Both are bad for the world but we need both ha and both provinces need the money earned from them....

Who's wood is up White Swan? Canfor? If it is private land outside a license it can be clear cut. If you drive thru Yahk all that wood on the east side of the road is from private land. If you get as far as Creston look to the north and you will see the mountain side above Wynndel is bare. Private land.

We are but for some reason Alberta gets attacked while some here want to praise BC. I'm sorry but is totally hypocritical...many wildfires because of logging companies not cleaning up after they move on. That's a burden to all of you taxpayers in BC.

 

What cleanup are logging companies not doing? I know that burning waste piles have been cut back or even eliminated. In the 80's & 90's I was involved in control burns to clear up waste. Enviromentalists didn't like that. Like everywhere the combustable material in the bush was building up over the years because of how efficient fire crews were in stopping fires. A lot of fires now are let burn by forestry.

Colonists seized first nations lands in the 1800's and put in place the Indian Act in 1876 to put their own legal system in place......

 

I think it is essential now that we honor the house chiefs that are primarily concerned with being stewards of their first nations territories...

 

We have destroyed so much of our provinces natural environment through the pursuit of economy .... maybe it is time for us all to think about being stewards of our province wilderness......    The way we are going now there will be nothing left to protect in our province.......

 

We have so much to learn from Indigenous people in our province about how to live together with our natural environment.

I think it is time to listen to our house chiefs and work together with them on not losing more of our province.   

 

Reconciliation means respectfully working together with first nations.... and this must include hereditary house chiefs.....

The indian act has always been a failure. Look at where it has gotten us.  Cultural genocide.

As with all things....balance.

 

While it would be nice to have unanimous agreement from all parties, that's just not the way the world works. Acceptance by a large majority constitutes a mandate, IMHO.

 

As much as I sympathize with the hereditary chiefs, I think anti-pipeline protesters are missing one point: The oil will be sent to the coast one way or another. If not by pipeline, then by increased rail and truck transport. Not only does this increase emissions, it also increases the likelihood of a spill. (It's worth noting that rail lines and roads follow river paths quite a bit of the time)

 

Far better, IMO, to twin the already existing pipeline, using up to date standards for construction and maintenance, than to force the producers to move their product by more expensive and less safe methods.

Cause thx to the wages the patch pays , people can afford to travel and buy houses in b.c. And other things if they want. 

Alberta only does well if oil does and Canada only does well if Alberta does well.....see the Trend....

 I believe John Horgan said they were going to make it mandatory so it's hard to believe it could be eliminated considering he's only been the premier for 2 years or two and a half
