***Please pay careful attention to the Athabasca River and the tailoring ponds in the images below. The Athabasca River is the water of our brothers and sisters of the Cree Nations. Their drinking water is being poisoned and the Oil companies and they are using legal tactics to wait for them to die of cancer from this environmental disaster.
Rethink Alberta – Tar (Oil) Sands Pollute Athabasca River
Suncor Energy admits the tailoring ponds kill an average of 5000 birds including ducks and Canadian geese every year. I’ve read of 1000’s of birds ever day parish in the tar sands tailing ponds.
In 1989, Suncor Energy was fined only $3 000 000 because a flock of 1606 Canadian Geese were recovered after they landed on the Tailoring ponds … To date, Suncor admits that there is an average of 5000 birds recovered from the tailoring ponds every year, most sink to the bottom and are unrecoverable. There is a 100% fatality rate when a bird enters any one of the 170 of square kilometers stretched over hundreds of these make shift tailoring ponds.
Please understand that the oil companies remedy to this environmental disaster is to fill the empty tar sand pits with rain water and hope the population will forget about it. Each tar pit will become a toxic sea.
The following images are of one of the tar sand mines. There are three others just as vast and many more applicants awaiting approval from our Canadian Dictatorship.
If you are a Canadian and you participate or do nothing then it is safe to say that you are about to become the biggest Environmental Terrorist the World has ever known.
