Canada's two asbestos mines have shut down production and an NDP motion on abestos has revealed cracks in Conservative Party 'unity'

 

Is this the beginning of the end of the asbestos industry in Canada?

Sunshine Ski Resort Expansion Is Bad News For Banff National Park

If you care about Banff National Park and the system of Canadian national parks then read this and act now before it is too late.

In Canada's national parks there is a fine balance between the primary protection and preservation of the parks and the secondary regulation of viable commercial services within the parks.  That balance is under immediate threat by the failure of Parks Canada to properly regulate commercial operators and there is no better example of the problem than Sunshine Village Ski Resort owned by the Scurfield family of Calgary.

Why To Occupy? In Favour of the 99%

http://whytooccupy.org/

We designed this site as a go-to for anyone who might care to sample
the many good reasons, valid issues, and eloquent explanations that
are being offered to support the growing OCCUPY movement.

The support comes from a myriad of mortals--economists, actors,
writers, musicians, veterans, scientists, gurus, pundits,
personalities--the list goes on. And will grow. Heck, even the US
Chairman of the Federal Reserve has chimed in with encouragement. Go
figure.

So if anyone tells you this movement is just a bunch of scruffy kids
passing the time--send them here.

Premier Christy Clark trade junket to China

 

Thanks, from me. Don't mind the rant! Skip this if you are not interested....

 

Yes, I sent the letter as to NRCD as shown below to Premier Christy Clark. 

This issue has not had any comment from her, she has been very cagey about the oil tanker question. She avoided any statements about Enbridge proposal before the election, didn't answer any letters we sent asking for her position. I even joined the Liberal Party BC (gag) before the election to try and get feedback from the inside. Nada.
