I am extremely grateful to those of you who have given your attention to all efforts aimed at opposing the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Obviously, this is a contentious issue, and since there is BIG money at stake, the truths about environmental impacts are being buried. One of the brazen arguments we have heard time and time again is how safe pipelines are, but did you know that on March 29, 2013, ExxonMobil experienced a pipeline spill in Mayflower, Arkansas, that spewed 85,000 gallons of tar sands crude into the community?
It’s also my sincere pleasure to share the following video from my friends at ¡No Pasaran! (They Shall Not Pass). This and other efforts from this group of talented volunteer British Columbia filmmakers who are opposed to oil tankers on the BC coast provide yet another glimpse into the brave and powerful united front that is emerging to stand against the environmental warfare occurring in Canada and big oil’s epic efforts to monetize them to the detriment of our planet and all its inhabitants.
