Mother Earth can’t take this disrespect
Re Trans Mountain Turning Point (NOW, May 3-9). Thanks NOW and Pamela Palmater for bringing this story to Toronto.
This struggle reminds me of when Lubicon Cree Chief Bernard Ominayak and elders would come to Toronto to educate the world on what was happening to the Cree Nation of Little Buffalo and Mother Earth.
Back then, environmentalists, churches, First Nations and concerned citizens joined in the struggle to stop logging, organizing boycotts against the oil and gas industry and clear-cut logging. The press do not give us coverage like they used to, which makes things harder.
With climate change you’d think the government would take concerns about this pipeline seriously. There is enough evidence now for the world to see that Mother Earth cannot take this disrespect.
