Did the Alberta government and Houston-based Apache Corp. just try to cover up one of the largest tar sands related spills in North American history?
“The Dene Tha are already reporting wide spread damage from dead trees, to poisoned wetlands and tributaries to impacts on wildlife and waterfowl. With over 42 hectares, the size of 52 CFL football fields affected the effects could be quite long lasting and hard to clean-up.”
- Mike Hudema Greenpeace Canada
A better reference for Texans: The spill impacted over 100 acres, or the equivalent of 200 of the world’s largest TV screen in Cowboys Stadium, itself about half the size of a football field.
Please SHARE. It is up to social media to expose this catastrophic spill.

If you think the government spying on you is NEW news, you’ve not been paying attention. Ever hear of The Patriot Act? Most of you people wanted it. It was going to “make us safer”, they said, and we all bought it. Having a bit of buyer’s remorse now, are we?
Almost half of Republicans think “It might be necessary to have an armed insurrection against the US government” soon.
Fibbertarians and neo-fascists look away, because you won’t like this… but
There is no instance, EVEN IN THE ABSTRACT, when liberty could be, or would need to be, preserved, at the insignificant point of your weapon (see: drones, Seals, Rangers, satellites, etc). There are MUCH better ways to make your voice heard, than to be the next David Koresh…
You can’t cap this gusher… and that’s EXACTLY how it f^cking should be. #BradleyManningIsAHero
