Harper Government Pulls Fast One on Arctic Oil Exploration?  Inuit Consider Lawsuit – Cornwall Ontario – July 23, 2010

Cornwall ON – The Harper Government has enraged Inuit over their 3 card monty shuffle over oil exploration in one of the richest wild life areas of the Canadian Arctic.

Lancaster Sound’s cliff-studded coastline is interspersed with bays, inlets and deep fiords. Most of the world’s narwhal, as well as large numbers of beluga and bowhead whales, swim amongst the icebergs that bob in its waters.

Polynyas — large sections of year-round, ice-free water — make rich habitat for seals and walrus, which in turn attract numerous polar bears. Seabirds flock there in the hundreds of thousands.

This is where the Harper government wants to explore for oil??  If BP wasn’t enough to worry about check out this story about an oil spill in China.  The picture alone is frightening.

One cleanup worker has drowned, his body coated in crude.

“I’ve been to a few bays today and discovered they were almost entirely covered with dark oil,” said Zhong Yu with environmental group Greenpeace China, who spent the day on a boat inspecting the spill.

We need a 100% moratorium on Oil exploration in sensitive areas of our country.  Some things money just can’t fix.

I agree that we should not be drilling there, however with the US trying to control the worlds commodities it may be due diligence being carried out by Harper. So far in order to earn control of many commodities the US has gone to war and or economically divested countries to take and pilfer the resources. They offer their aid and assistance with the ROI being access to the natural resources. The next country to have this done will be Afghanistan. The minerals are worth billions. The issue is the US is so broke and they cannot afford to pay… Read more »
