The Periodic Table tells us water and oil don’t really like each other. Much like what we are witnessing in today’s Hatfield-McCoy like feud between the BC and Alberta governments. West Coast (First Nations) Environmentalists versus the prairie Crude Oil Industrialists… Eco-Protectionist’s versus the (Canadian) Alberta Oil Economy.
Now with the Federal Court “enforcing its own blockade” on the Trans Mountain Pipeline, AB Premiere Rachel Notely is going to pick up her marbles and walk away from the National Climate Plan. #FoodFightPolitics

The new NDP Horgan government have reneged on their promise to the Moberly First Nation choosing to turn their backs on the First Nation People of Peace River. Contending flooding 10,000 hectares of sacred lands and rural farmlands is worth the 4 billion dollars it will save on its debt as it offers nothing in return for the people of this province (as the voices of the First Nation People and rural farmers have nothing to offer our province).
