Thanks Unionist

Did you know that Ralph Nader a long time ago tried to stop the James Bay Hydro Dam project in Quebec, but had the rug pulled out from under him by environments from the Toronto area, who said that Canadians should be the one to stop it?

And after they didn't stop it, some of those same environmentists, got jobs doing research on the project.  

Pollution Probe has quite the Board of Directors for a bunch of environmentalists.

What a shame. If he'd managed to stop it, Quebec (and the New England states we supply) could get our electricity from coal, and then we'd certainly be much better off.

It's a little sickening that, in this thread, you'd insist on gloating about that.

Folks need to chill a bit around here.

cco didn't come across as gloating

He was raising a debatable issue about the James Bay Dams don't you think?
