RAVEN - Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs

Gas pains! The Montreal Gazette Op-Ed by Janet Bagnall

Harper refuses to recognize the urgent need for action to reduce greenhouse gases…  

“But if the Harper government seems prepared to blow off international criticism, it’s going to find it harder to ignore when the British come over here and put money down to draw attention to our hypocrisy.”

In this insightful opinion piece, Janet Bagnall quotes Jack Woodward about the Beaver Lake Cree Nation lawsuit, placing the issue within the context of the current G8 meeting in Italy.  “Canada as a nation will realize that the expansion of the tar sands is morally and economically untenable.”  Ms Bagnall also includes comments from Manchester’s Co-operative Bank, which is supporting the Beaver Lake Cree financially.
