from four Northwestern States
a huge EXXON (Esso) mega-shipment destined
for the TarSands.

At a time when the present Reform/ Alliance coalition government of Canada, masquerading as conservatives are claiming their priority is jobs for Canadians, they are allowing Korea to manufacture the necessary parts for Canada’s shame in northern Alberta.
They must have known this was happening because they had to issue import licences.
Why did they think these could not be made in Canada?
Why were they not willing to tell Exxon, “Get it done in Canada or forget it.”
The size and scope and costs of this is breathtaking and we get nothing but the destruction of Alberta roads and a larger mness near Fort McMurray Alberta.
How much are they willing to help Alberta with the destruction of those roads to be used?
Are they really serious about creating jobs in Canada?
There are so many questions here that need to be answered.
One of those questions will be are you the mainstream media in Western Canada going to even look into this and then report it?
Thanks to the American States which have refused to allow these shipments to destroy their roads and towns on route.
If ever we needed proof that Stephen ‘I make the rules’ Harper is out of touch with the needs of the Canadian people and reality this is it.
This is from President Obama’s speech to the UN on 23rd September 2010:
The world that America seeks is not one we can build on our own. For human rights to reach those who suffer the boot of oppression, we need your voices to speak out. In particular, I appeal to those nations who emerged from tyranny and inspired the world in the second half of the last century — from South Africa to South Asia; from Eastern Europe to South America. Don’t stand idly by, don’t be silent, when dissidents elsewhere are imprisoned and protesters are beaten. Recall your own history. Because part of the price of our own freedom is standing up for the freedom of others.
What I believe he is saying to those nations is “Speak out against Canada for what they did to their dissidents and peaceful protestors in Toronto at the G8, G20 meetings this last summer”.
I wonder if any of them dare, but if they do dare the USA will have to back them up.
Way to go Stephen (I make the rules) Harper, way to go.
But never mind, Israel will stand behind you !
To all MPs and a majority of the Senators,
Bill C-36, an act respecting consumer product safety.
Strange isn’t it how things work out.
I, along with many others, wrote to you all about Bill C-36, and NHPs.
Section 4 (3) states:
For greater certainty, this Act does not apply to natural health products as defined in 1(1) of the Natural Health Products Regulations made under the Food and Drug Act.
What I wrote to you all time and again was that this was a red herring because the NHPs were going to be attacked under the regulations made to the Food and Drug Act and which came into force last January, and so Section 4 (3) was a meaningless paragraph.
But of course you all knew better did you not? This was a victory for you wasn’t it?Just as you knew better about Canada’s sovereignty and rule of Law.
There have been a series of swat team type raids on natural health foods purveyors already and the damn is about to break.
This is what I received by email today from two different sources.
I regret to be the bearer of bad news. I have received confirmation of the new Health Canada enforcement intent for 2011. On March 1, 2011 Health Canada begins full enforcement of nhp’s. Here are the details:
· On March 1, 2011 retailers will not be permitted to purchase unlicensed stock from suppliers (EN or NPN is required), regardless of a submission being in queue.
· On March 1, 2011 importers will not be allowed to import unlicensed products (EN or NPN required).
· On September 1, 2011 retailers will not be allowed to sell to consumers any product that does not have an EN or NPN. In other words, retailers will be allowed to continue selling out unlicensed stock from now until September 1, 2011 — but after September 1, 2011 they will not be permitted to sell unlicensed stock.
Do any of you have any idea how many applications there are for EN or NPNs that are being ignored by Health Canada for years because their pharmaceutical masters tell to do so? Do any of you know how many products are being delisted for the same reason? Maybe one of you should check it out as it is not hard to find the answer. (Clue: it is in the 500,000 + range). Not one single pharmaceutical drug has been refused or delisted, inspite of hundreds of thousands of deaths, in how many years?
So for those if you who were so proud that you had managed to get this “concession” and therefore claimed that this Bill C-36 was very good for Canada and Canadians and so you did not need to listen to what we were saying to you, I say thank you for altering the very fabric of Canada, her citizens’ health and certainly her peoples’ freedoms to practice their own health care and privacy by your careless acceptance and passage of Bill C-36 with a catchy name.
It is way too late for you to re-read what you so blithely passed with hardly even looking at the Bill and it’s gross attack on Canada’s sovereignty and Rules of Law. Even though the valiant fight goes by a few Canadians in the Senate which is no longer a chamber of sober second thought but an extension of one man’s personal ideology and determination to destroy Canada by handing our parliament, courts and people over to his corporate masters. No it is a forgone conclusion unless some of those Harper minions in the Senate realise what is happening and decide that Canada is more important than a really dangerous Bill with a catchy name.
The Minister of Health has done a great job of selling you on the need for this Bill C-36 without ever referring to the real purpose behind the bill. All you MPs fell for it without regard for your constituents, whom you are supposed to represent, and without listening to their cries of alarm. Great work. I expect you all to to be rewarded in the next election.
When the first regulations come rolling in from EU, USA, China, Israel, or wherever without you even being made aware of them; when our agriculture and food supplies are all controlled by Monsanto; when our budget is under the direction of the IMF and/or the Bank of International Settlements, remember this…YOU WERE WARNED.
I will not take the drugs that Health Canada will try to force on me as they did last year with the untested, untried dangerous H1N1 vaccine for a fake pandemic, but rather I will seek out the black market for those natural foods which are good for my body. Since I am now getting old it will not be long before I start to rot due to the lack of availability of healthy nutrition for low income seniors, so thank you all very much.
My greatest contempt is for the leaders of the parties who told you what to do and you did it blindly. When the deaths start to happen due to malnutrition and excessive pharmaceutical drug use; from the fear of and the actuality of raids by armed riot police for the simple “suspected” possession of a possibly dangerous product; from the removal of personal possessions simply because they can be removed indefinitely, remember Health Canada, Health Canada’s real masters, Bill C-36 and your part in it.
My admiration to those who are still fighting for Canada in the Senate, and you know who you are. You are included in this simply so you know what I think of the rest, but I thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of Canada, my children and grandchildren. May the force be with you.
For the rest of you I have nothing but pity and some measure of contempt.
