    In the minds of conservatives like Harper, Canada is too green and too peace loving. So they are setting about changing that. If we try harder than other countries do to protect our natural environment, as Canadians want, we will not be able to "compete" with those other countries. If a corporation cannot spew its toxic effluent into a lake or river in Canada, then it will simply do business elsewhere. We cannot allow that to happen. The economy is too important. The point that these people miss is that an economy like that is a cancer and is not sustainable. We live in an era of corporate greed and our governments have been bought out.

  • Thank You to the Six Hundred and Twenty Five Scientists and others who are speaking up against changes to the Fisheries Act

    Thank God that 625 Scientists and others have lent their voice of reason to opposing the idiocracy being proposed by the Canadian Government in its move to allow changes to the Federal Fisheries Act, an Act that protects fish habitats. If we let this present Conservative Government in Ottawa do as it wishes in a few short years there will not be one square mile of Canada and its Oceans that won't be contaminated. For God's sake Ottawa wake up and do some accounting of those of us now suffering with Cancer and other diseases most likely caused by the lack of controls over our Environment. Besides Ottawa has been the cause of the catastrophic destruction of the fish bio-mass, where it is presently less than 10% of its former self.

    surely the pm knows more about the environment than a bunch of educated elites.what do the oil companies say? that's the most important thing.

      "Mainlander" may prefer to side with the uneducated clods, but it doesn't take a scientist to realise that the PM could not care less about our natural environment, but rather subsidise corporate destruction of our natural heritage. They get it "free', we lose priceless resources.

    This is indicative of "issues" with the way government works on many levels but one thing is clear....a government should not be empowered to permit the willful destrruction of the planet or the ecosystem. There should be some laws (relating to the air, the water, the soil, etc - items necessary to sustain human life) which cannot be changed by the government using their standard processes. I don't know if there is anything like this in the Charter of Rights and Frredoms? For example, a country's obligation to provide air to breathe or water to drink.

    "... a collection of 625 scientists..." Whaaa? The Harper government hasn't arrested the scientists yet? It’s fine to ignore or denounce the educated infidels, but let’s start getting tough on crime and get some (egg)heads on stakes!
