A sweary, angry yet accurate report on Stephen Harper’s time in office

“Harper’s government is a steaming pile of failure and broken promises. Let’s make sure everyone knows.” – Source: A sweary, angry yet accurate report on Stephen Harper’s time in office

 

This is really funny…

As a side note, I know I’ve been very obvious about my hatred, but I want to make sure everyone knows how FUCKED we are going to be if he gets back in office for another 4 years.

The Cut – Shane Koyczan  →Harper’s “Canada”

An incredible piece of poetry.

||Listen to his words (maybe ignore the sappy background music)

Think about what has happened to Canada in the past 9+ years, do we really want to keep this up? Do we really want to keep selling off pieces of (stolen) Canadian soil to China?

If Stephen Harper is re-elected, he will become one of the top 5 longest elected Prime Ministers in Canadian history. So when you mark your ballot on October 19, think about what kind of Canada you want to be proud of.

Why is America telling me this?

Almost 2 weeks ago a pipeline spill occurred in Alberta, Canada just south of Fort McMurray.
My only knowledge of this occurred when checking my inbox… What the hell, Canada?

Why have I not heard ANYTHING about this in Canadian news & media?  (to be fair, I haven’t checked CBC)

An American source sent me the email and THAT is how I heard about this! I’m appalled by us Canadians. Where have our values gone?!?
Nation of Change, an entirely non-profit American news source that encourages honest journalism about real issues that are not being covered by mainstream media was created because corporations buy mainstream news agencies and filter/sensor most of the news.
e.x. CP24, owned by Bell Media.

The oil industry is so big, and with so much at stake for politicians (Harper loves his liquid dinosaurs and is still pushing new pipelines) and corporations.  I am sure covering something so close to home during a time of record-forest fires in Saskatchewan AND THE ELECTIONS is not the best move. When spills happen in California, along the Gulf Coast or in Asia, its o.k. to report: We are removed from the issue because it “does not directly affect us” making the news more sensational as opposed to catastrophic.

So what happened?

 “[…] the largest pipeline spill in the province in 35 years, when a 54,000 barrel oil spill became Canada’s worst-ever pipeline incident.”SourceAustralia's Great Barrier Reef

& This is not the only issue that has come up recently.

“Meanwhile, Alberta is not the only place where oil spills are demanding attention. Halfway around the world in Australia, a potential oil spill was found on Friday along the Great Barrier Reef. The Reef, an especially delicate ecosystem and World Heritage Site, has come under multiple stressors in recent years, including development, fossil fuel export, and climate change.” – Source

Australia has been extorted by fossil fuel exporters for a long time. With major detrimental effects on the quality of life for people and animals on the island. If you want to know more, watch the documentary I blogged about in  Fracking Our Lives Away

As shocked as I am, I’m not surprised.

These kind of events remind me to keep my eyes open and my mind constantly questioning, asking for more answers. It is our responsibility to take care of this planet. If we leave major decisions and law-making to a select few sociopaths, the next few generations may not have a planet worth living on.

I will leave you with my mantra, in the words of my favorite band ever: Free Thinkers are Dangerous.

Fracking our lives away.

Gasland 2 is the sequel to an American documentary that focuses on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and what happens to regular people because of the gas industries we support everyday. If you drive a car, heat your home, own a cellphone OR eat food that doesn’t come from your backyard WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY.

Do you know there are places in America that don’t have any clean water because of fracking?
Kids who can’t swim or play in ponds near their home because of the chemicals irresponsibly released into their water supply?

Dimock, Pennsylvania’s water is flammable because of improper disposal of waste water from drilling. There is gasoline and methane in their drinking water!

Flaming hoses… in Texas, too!

Fracking in the neighborhood doesn’t just manifest itself in water. Chemicals blowing in the wind can cause health problems (more…)
