-Canada- Shale gas development divides voters, CBC poll finds   { The poll reports that 49 percent of voters ‘completely or mostly’ support exploration and development of the shale gas industry – Which involves Fracking – while 44 per cent mostly or completely oppose it. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5% * Those who back the exploration and development believe the party line b.s. that a lot of jobs and a big economic boost will come from allowing the oil and gas conglomerates to frack them where they live. – As the photo of the poster we ran a couple times here shows, Oil and Gas investments return 2 jobs for every million dollars invested, while Clean Energy returns 15 jobs per million dollars invested, and Building Efficiency returns 14 jobs for every million bucks invested. Maybe we should run a poll and see if anybody really cares about not being able to afford to get healthy safe drinkable water as long as their fiendish local gas company gets millions of dollars from further fleecing them after they’ve been fracked into not being able to live on the property they over-paid for. —djo— }

-New- 3 firms tied to Liberal Andrew Harvey defaulted on ACOA loans   { “ACOA” = Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. Andrew Harvey is the Liberal candidate for provincial office who was suspended from the Liberal party when charges were laid against him, even though the party leader complained that the timing of those charges was highly suspicious. Andrew Harvey is listed as a member of the board of directors on 3 companies which received loans for the ACOA and haven’t paid them back yet. A court granted a ruling that two of these companies were in default as of 2009 and in 2011 the clerk of the court entered a judgement against the two companies for $225,000 plus $825.00 in interest. In March of 2012, the third company that Mr Harvey is involved with withdrew its statement of defence in their case and that December -2012?- the court entered a judgment against the company for $228,977.12 plus $728.98 in interest. Andrew Harvey is still running for a seat in his riding (which those of you in the U.S.A. would call a ‘district’) But, if he wins, he will ‘sit as an independent’ and not with Liberal party members. —djo—  }
