“Local / New Brunswick”

Irving Oil turfs Gordon Dalzell, clean air activist, from group   { Gordon Dalzell is an award-winning environmental advocate who was part of Irving Oil’s community Liaison committee- He was told they no longer want him on their committee because he released proprietary information to the media. * This may be a case where a corporation believes it can over-rule a citizen’s constitutional rights. —jim w— }

Brian Gallant’s hydro-fracking moratorium is risky, expert says   { In another case where corporations believe they can dictate around or above the laws of a sovereign nation some businesses are suing various provincial, state, and federal governments. After Quebec banned hydro-fracking the U.S.-based Lone Pine Resources sued the federal government of Canada for $250 million in compensation. Andrea Bjorklund, a professor of international commercial law at McGill University in Montreal, said the Liberals have to be careful about how the moratorium will be instituted. -Bjorklund, who was a part of the U.S. State Department’s NAFTA arbitration team, said provinces have the right to change laws under NAFTA, especially to protect people or the environment. – But Bjorklund said they also have to respect the rights of investors. ** And the guys at “Half Past Human dot com” have seen a time when the ‘Banksters’ will try to take down sovereign governments and while this will not be pleasant for anybody- the Banksters will not emerge victorious.  -When it’s us vs them in a fight for our lives, there are a hell of a lot more of us than there are of them.- Bjorklund was interviewed on local CBC early morning news this morning and said a bunch of times that fracking is safe and they have science to prove it. She was really good at trying to deflect her way around questions the interviewer asked, but he was better and I think you didn’t have to be psychic to see through her. After she was gone from the program someone sent email in to the host of the morning news and he read that on the air. The email ripped her arguments apart and accused her of believing that the general public was stupid and got their information by carrier pigeon. —jim w— }

Transition to Liberal Brian Gallant government begins   { “New Brunswick’s new Liberal government is expected to be sworn in within two weeks. – The first step toward the transition took place on Wednesday, with a meeting between Premier-designate Brian Gallant and outgoing Premier David Alward in Fredericton. – Gallant says he’s confident the process will go well, but a firm date has not yet been set. – “The premier’s been very co-operative, his team has been very co-operative, and committed to us that he would do everything he possibly can to make this the smoothest transition it can be,” Gallant told reporters after the meeting.” —jim w— }

Threats against police must stop, Moncton judge says   { I wonder if the judge thought of applying that to threats made by police as well. —jim w— }

“Aboriginal”

McMaster wants aboriginal child taken from family for chemotherapy   { Somebody should spirit the ice-holes who made that decision away and give them chemotherapy. Feed them lots of Genetically modified corn sweetener until their intestines burst and/or hold the idjits down and force feed them flouride five or six times a day, a whole tube of toothpaste at a time. How long do you think they’d survive? Doctors have known for years that there are better, almost free cures for cancer that they will not endorse because the big phamaceutical companies can’t get rich if everybody knows they can cure themselves for free.  Would that be cruel or unusual punishment? —jim w— }
