Keystone XL: a line in the sand for Obama

brentmcgillis's comment 24 August 2011 7:56PM

I honestly doubt that most readers even have the most rudimentary understanding of the issues at hand it this debate. Most Canadians, and I am sure that most Americans simply do not have enough information on the Keystone Project or the relationship between the Houston Oil magnates and their historical relationship with the province of Alberta, where all of the wide open destruction is being carried on with wild gleeful abandon. Houston Texas, basically runs the province of Alberta. We do have farcical elections every 4 yrs to satisfy the public need for some kind of verification that we actually live in N. America. But the our entire phony democracy facade here in Alberta is corrupted by the Conservative Good Ol' boys club, that has ruled here for 40 years. The Alberta Conservative Party corrupted our political process in the last election by appointing All of the returning officers from their own party. I know a proud election worker with 30 years experience, a woman who worked the last election and vows never to work a provincial election in Alberta ever again. Because they did not even know who the returning officer was until the last moment, and then some guy just showed up and whisked off with the returns. They were severely short of staff, with no observer and were treated very rudely by election officials, this is how an election is conducted here in the Oil Industrial heartland of Canada. The opposition party was almost wiped off the map in our last election. The ruling Alberta Conservative Party has very close ties to the Republican Party in the United States. Our next Premier in waiting for the province of Alberta is Ted Morton, the son of a Republican Speaker of the house in Wyoming. Ted father worked for the Oil & Gas companies. Alberta has for the last 20 years elected the "Chosen One" to run this province so rich in Natural resources. By some miracle of god, this province elected a self confessed drunkard 3 times to run Alberta. Our last premier had one of his corrupt backbenchers Hung Pham, who was caught and charged by police with elections fraud appointed to run the Treasury of Alberta less than 2 years after he and his cronies were charged with elections tampering. This is how corrupt Alberta is. There is no separation between the executive and the Justice Department in this province. The very building blocks of Democracy No Longer exist here in the most corrupt province in Canada. Our own prime minister and the Conservatives across Canada are very closely linked with the Republicans in the United States. Including such wing nuts as MIke Huckabee who worked closely to influence and mentor Conservative youth, in the Prime Minister drive to split the left and unite the right, in order to win supreme power in Canada. Canada is now primarily, simply another super corrupt Oil State. Canada is increasingly a "Petro Dollar" reliant economy. The Conservative Party of Canada, run by Stephen Harper, who worked for Esso Canada is now fully in control. Environmental laws have been completely thrown out the window in this super corrupt "Oil State", and it has been this way for years now. Ralph Klein, our half corked ex-premier paved the way for the eco-disaster looming before us. As Canadians, we are now powerless to stop the corruption and wide open destruction, deforestation and ultimately what will result in a wide scale Eco-disaster which will permanently poison one of the worlds longest watersheds, the Mackenzie river drainage basin. Stephen Harper, Ed Stelmach, and the next premier of Alberta simply do NOT CARE what the rest of the world thinks of the wide open unregulated pollution of our rivers and the biosphere itself. The Conservative Party and their unbridled GREED will not allow them to deviate from there gluttonous pursuit of Tar Sands Wealth, even if it's costs the rest of Planet Earth horrible consequences. What the rest of the World does not realize, is that Oil & Gas is allowed to "Self Regulate" themselves here in Alberta. So the true numbers of not only harmful substances being released into the atmosphere{e.g. So2}, but the true data of how much green house gases that are being voraciously pumped into the biosphere here in Alberta will NEVER be known. The province of Alberta is like a Oil Executives Wet Dream come true here in Alberta, wild, wide open, unregulated freedom to do as you please. With absolutely no fear of any pesky politicians or any other prying eyes being allowed to ask or investigate what is really going on here. And all of this is being run from Houston Texas. Our electoral system here is nothing more than a Dog & Pony show. Bush & Cheney still run the Oil of America which includes Alberta, and they are not going to allow a Black Guy & a bunch of whiny Eco-nuts stand in the way of their complete and total domination of the price of Oil in America. To much of "Their Own Money" is at stake, for them to allow that to happen.
"And so it goes".
