I Am A Radical

I've never truly thought of myself as a radical. Maybe a little out there and opinionated when it comes to things that are close to my heart but not quite radical but then I read this on Annie's blog today and I had to share it here with you to.

"On January 9th 2012 Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, Joe Oliver, released an open letter to Canadians in which he stated that anyone who speaks out against the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project is a “radical” and has a “radical ideological agenda”. In his letter he implied that such radicals are also opposed to all mining, forestry, oil and gas and hydro-electric development in Canada."

So I ask you, are you a radical? If you are one of these 'Canadian Radicals' as we have been officially named then please take a minute to go to this website and let our government know just what you think! I did and I hope you will to.

If you are unsure of what Enbridge would bring to our beautiful province or are sitting on the fence as to whether you are for or opposed to the Northern Gateway Pipeline then I ask you to please watch this short video and see just what BC is gambling with and why we should stand up to protect our coastal waters, the Great Bear Rainforest and all of the life that it would pass through. This video actually makes me cry and just tears my heart out :(

And maybe listen to this fantastic song by Rachelle Van Zanten that was inspired by images of Tahltan women blockading Shell in defense of the Sacred Headwaters in northern British Columbia.

You can find out more and join the BC fight against Enbridge at the following websites.


PS. If you are receiving this via email you may have to pop over to my blog to view the videos if they don't show up in your email.
