The pair discuss a range of topics, including the Harper Government’s taxpayer-funded Tar Sands PR campaign and the characterization of environmentalists and citizens opposed to the proposed Enbridge pipelines as radicals and threats to the national interest.

Listen to this ten minute discussion on Wake Up with Co-op re: the renewed Site C Dam
proposal and a recent rally in Victoria to voice opposition to the plan. This past
Sunday, First Nations, ranchers, conservationists, and citizens from the Peace River
region and around BC paddled to the Legislature to deliver their message to the
premier and public. They are concerned Site C will unnecessarily flood important
farmland, ecosystems, and traditional aboriginal territories at great cost to the
public and BC Hydro ratepayers – all to subsidize the Tar Sands and resource mining
for multi-national corporations, the United States, and Asia.
