Say NO to Kinder Morgan. Use Canadian money for Canadians. I have yet to hear anyone say how this pipeline is in the national interest, yet I hear this phrase repeated over and over again. I see that it is in the interest of Alberta. And let’s get real about that. Alberta is blaming the non building of this pipe line on the loss of jobs in the oil field. As I recall, it was a glut of oil in the world that caused many of the oil companies to pull out of Alberta. It became unprofitable for them to continue extracting tar. And Premier Notely is giving a final last gasp to the oil industry by pushing for the extraction of tar that no one, apparently, wants.
DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY OR FINANCIAL ASSURANCES TO KINDER MORGAN. I stand with the Indigenous peoples of this most beautiful province and contest this fiasco.
