Tar Sands, Tories and Ethical Oil – an interview with Shelley Glover, MP

St. Boniface MP Shelley Glover recently lectured Winnipeg broadcaster Michael Welch of CKUW-FM 95.9 on the virtues of “ethical oil” and the “balanced” approach of the Conservative government to energy development that has obtained the “support” of aboriginal people for tar sands development and the Enbridge Pipeline Proposal. Michael checked her assertions with Gerald Amos, former elected Chief Councillor for the Haisla First Nation for 12 years and a leader of the fierce opposition that is being mounted by communities across BC to the Enbridge proposal.

Was Glover poorly informed or spinning for her boss, Stephen Harper? Watch the video and judge for yourself.

After you’ve watched this, you may want to watch Tar Sands, Pipelines and Tankers – the forum at which Gerald Amos spoke, along with Wade Davis, Lynne Fernandez and Anne Lindsey.

    OMG This person is so far off the truth about how people feel about this TAR SANDS development. There is no support in BC for this project and we are willing to fight to the end to stop it from happening. Hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost in BC when the spill happens and we in BC value our beautiful province and will fight to keep it that way. The Conservative Government has sold us out and are willing to label its people as radical against Canada if we disagree with what they are doing. The few jobs this project will create is not worth the loss to our environment and we will stand up to big oil

    What a puppet.
