Early on Sunday morning...the Mayor of Mexico City sent hundreds of riot police into a working class neighbourhood to evict occupiers and ensure that work can proceed on his pet freeway project...Residents of the neighbourhood Magdalena Contreras along with supporters from the...(Broad Front Against the Western Superhighway and in Defense of the Environment) have mounted an occupation which has been ongoing for over a year.
I’ve been watching the sky like a hawk for quite a while now. The past month and a half I’ve witnessed unprecedented amounts of scalar electromagnetic waves dominating the skies here in Halifax, Canada. It was frequent before but now it seems to be almost non-stop and should attract the attention of even the most casual observer. Even as I write this, another barrage of manipulation is up there yet again.

Canada's global reputation is in tatters, and the reasons why are plain to see...It was the Canadian government who fired the opening salvo of the talks, when news broke that they planned to withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol...They promised to "play hardball" with impoverished, developing countries, and dismissed as a "historical guilty card" the demand for industrialized nations to take responsibility for two centuries of emissions. "It poisoned the negotiations..."
Eventually, what I uncovered baffled and disgusted me. I would like to stress that I do not seek to alarm anyone with the information presented here. Morgellons is downright creepy and exhausting to even think about. I’m really not surprised why I just found out about Morgellons now, despite having researched and filmed chemtrails for over a year.

Grassroots environmental groups and organizers were hit hard by the federal government's announcement on October 13 that the half-million dollars that funds Canada's environmental networks will be terminated..."For this tiny amount of money, Environment Canada is shooting itself in the foot...[Nova Scotia Environmental Network] has shown us how to approach government and community in an intelligent way."
Hundreds of millions of gallons of toxic waste fluids are dumped into rivers and streams annually. No regulations prohibit it. Wastewater treatment plants can't flush out toxins let alone dangerous radioactive materials contaminating areas forever.

As the negative environmental and health impacts of the Alberta tar sands grow, defenders of the huge oil extraction project continue to try to green-wash the endeavor by leaning on arguments that make it appear more environmentally friendly than it truly is. Recently, industry backers have added "pink-washing" — brandishing queer rights to promote Alberta's oil as an ethical choice.
We first heard of the Mega Quarry years ago, while traveling in the Collingwood area. Local environmentalists were talking about a proposed quarry just to the south, a quarry larger than any ever dug in this country, so large it could swallow much of downtown Toronto and so deep that it would be taller than Niagara Falls. It was a nightmare vision – beyond the smog of thousands of trucks, across the polluted springs fed by poisoned aquifers, a devastating wound in the earth would extend past the horizon.
An audio interview with Zak Nicholls, a human rights activist who lives in Sarnia, Ontario.
Last week’s action at Parliament Hill represents a mockery of the proud tradition of civil disobedience. The “civil disobedient” asked...for permission to be arrested without defying law or social convention, and without disrupting Parliament’s daily operations. The sentiment, "arrest me please, because I care and believe power listens to the polite and well-reasoned," may well represent the image of their government some Canadians wish were true, but it is not reality.

The purpose here is...to call out the ethical oilers selective use of "ethics" to justify the continued exploitation of the tar sands. This is the real hypocrisy, as Harper and the ethical oilers apply selective ethical criteria to one product, but not to others. We certainly could adopt an ethical trading policy that put considerations of human rights, indigenous sovereignty and environmental sustainability as the basis for our international trade. However based on those three considerations alone, I doubt Alberta tar-sands would make the cut.

Court documents now reveal that in the 1990s Shell routinely worked with Nigeria's military and mobile police to suppress resistance to its oil activities, often from activists in Ogoniland, in the delta region...According to Ogoni activists, several thousand people were killed in the 1990s and many more fled that wave of terror that took place in the 1990s.
They speak about Canadian asbestos exports, victims of asbestos exposure, a history of asbestos around Sarnia-Lambton's Chemical Valley, and other related topics.

Two ice shelves that existed before Canada was settled by Europeans diminished significantly this northern summer, one nearly disappearing altogether, Canadian scientists say in newly published research...The loss is important as a marker of global warming, returning the Canadian Arctic to conditions that date back thousands of years, scientists say.
