The Dilbit Diaries...The Bonfire Of The Flack Hackeries.


In case you missed it there is a pretty big dilbit ooze going down in and around Cold Lake Alberta that started sometime last summer.

And instead of really investigating and figuring out what is really going on, it would appear that Environment Canada has been more concerned with keeping any and all leaks to the media contained.

Mike De Souza, now working for the TStar has the story.

Here's his lede:

OTTAWA—Environment Canada’s enforcement branch asked a spokesman to “limit information” given to reporters about how long it took to launch a federal investigation into a serious Alberta oilsands leak last summer.

The comments were included in more than 100 pages of emails obtained by the Star that were generated in response to questions from journalists last summer about the mysterious leak in Cold Lake, Alta., that now totals about 1.2 million litres of bitumen emulsion, a mixture of heavy oil and water...


Don't worry.

It's ethical!

Well, that and Neil Young was way wrong.


Meanwhile, in other environmental news of our world...Tens of thousands of farm fish are dying in Nootka Sound and Alexandra Morton is not buying the industry's 'explanation' handed to the media.

We did hear of this, quite some time back. Rumor to-day is, Cold Lake is to be another tar sands operation. One way to hide the lies and deceit, and the ignoring of this atrocity.

Environment Canada, doesn't give a S#!~ about, tanker oil spills, pipe bursts, Climate Change, polluting our, rivers, streams, lands, air, nor the sea. They too are of, Harper's fascist regime. All of Harper supporters, are of his Borg.

There is acid in the ocean, right up to the shores of BC. The acid eats the shells off the crustaceans. There was a massive die off of Scallops, at least 10 million they say. If the oceans die? We die.

It is as they say? Man is the most destructive animal on this earth. And, the most stupid ones at that. However, Harper is at the top of the list for stupid, in this world.

well thank you for that information. It isn't the first time there have been large numbers of dead fish and it won't be the last. Probably some new worker who wasn't trained properly or perhaps even what they feed the fish.

thank heavens for Ms. Morton. That executive isn't going to make this stench go away, even if they bury the fish. They ought to find out if the fish is very soft, as in almost jelly like. It wouldn't be the first time
