When disaster almost strikes but doesn't, a question always lingers: Was the close brush a reminder that accidents will happen, or proof that we can deal with them when they do? So it went with the Simushir, the Russian container ship that lost power off British Columbia's coast last weekend and drifted into the political shoals of the province's ongoing tanker debates.

While the Haida Nation, B.C. and Canada have taken strides in shared land management, B.C. and Canada oppose Haida Aboriginal Title to the lands and waters of Haida Gwaii. In their legal arguments they completely deny Haida Aboriginal Title and rights. They deny that the Haida owned land. These denials are centuries old and belong to "another time".

Don't Dump Iron -- Dump Rogue Climate Schemes

The press release had a pretty stark headline: "Haida Announce Termination of Russ George." George was the guy who persuaded the small impoverished indigenous community of Old Massett on Haida Gwaii to part with over $2.5-million. He did so under the pretense that dumping iron in the ocean to stimulate a plankton bloom would net lucrative profits in the carbon credit market. Losing the rogue geoengineer may be good for optics, but it is a meaningless step unless the Haida also jettison his junk visions to manipulate the oceans and climate.
