“We're fighting it up here for exactly the same reasons you list, but our prime minister and his (minions) party is nothing more than a shill for the tar sands. He's gutted our environmental protection laws, and as you've probably read recently from the NY Times editorial, has muzzled our tax-payer funded scientists, all to move that goo to asian markets via the Enbridge Northern Gateway. They have a major problem though. It has to pass through BC First Nations territories to reach the west coast, lands that are protected under our constitution. Don't even get me started on the super-tanker traffic on our beautiful, rugged west coast.
We will make sure it is tied up in court for a very, very, long time.
Yours in solidarity.”

“Fully agree.
All it takes is lobbyists to tell Harper it would make him look good, and tough on crime if he makes changes to our Canadian law, which would in turn provide private corporations their "clients" needed to keep the jails full.
Already been done in the States kids, and the ones mostly hit are the minorities and the poor.
With all the cuts being made to our court systems, I see easy pickins'.
I'm just curious how the Gov't is going to spin this. Imported fear-mongering tactics like those used in the States? Won't work here, we're too well read. As a cost savings? Same answer.
Seriously, the next election just seems so damn far away.”

Canada-China FIPA Challenge By Hupacasath First Nation Rejected

“"The FIPA will expose Canada to lawsuits from Chinese companies and investors who claim their profits have been lowered somehow by a government decision, including environmental legislation, resource conservation measures, or actions that fulfilled constitutional responsibilities with respect to First Nations. Canadian firms receive the same rights to challenge public policy in China. Like with NAFTA and other bilateral investment treaties, these lawsuits would be decided by paid arbitrators in closed-door hearings outside of Canada’s legal system." canadians.org
And...
"Incredibly, if BC tries to regulate or block Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline, Sinopec, another Chinese state-owned oil company with investments in Canada’s natural resource infrastructure, may be able to sue for damages, and we may never even hear about it the case or the details of the results" Leadnow.ca
So, after Harper signs away our soverienty, it will be too late for all Canadians to pursue any legal avenues to stop what we value. All we are is to be harvested, picked clean, and they'll move on to another bought-and-paid-for government. Our opposition leaders should have this front and centre, not going after the antics of our senators.”

“Incredibly poorly thought out, from the company to our elected officials. Now, both are back-pedaling, to save their azzes.

"HD Mining has insisted its long-term plan is to train and hire Canadians."
By that time, Chinese workers will have filled all the jobs. (at substantially lower wages)
Lack of qualified workers?
Bull.
"He also noted HD Mining is working on a $15 million housing project linked to the mine".
Again, probably with the majority of chinese labourers.
This stinks to high heaven.

“Again, a good, common sense article Diane.
The problem with regulations, and this gov't, is when it becomes too costly, or gets in the way, they just legislate the irritants away. I have no trust in gov't overseeing the safety and protection of our environment, when China has invested billions.
@ slohand
Enbridge has already said that by going the Rupert route, it is much harder and unstable. Besides that, the pipeline will run 80kms along the Skeena River. You know that's not about to happen.”
