Conservation must be our central order of business

Unless we practice conservation, those who come after us will have to pay the
price of misery, degradation, and failure for the progress and prosperity of our day.
(Gifford Pinchot 1865-1946, first Chief of U.S. Forest Service)

In 2008, the energy-giant Enbridge proposed a $5.5 billion pipeline that would shuttle a half million gallons of oil--everyday--from Alberta’s tar sands to oil tankers working British Columbia’s rugged west coast.

The proposal ticked off countless environmental non-profits, First Nations groups, and conservation photographers, like Neil Ever Osborne. This summer, Osborne flew the proposed pipeline’s course, snapping aerial photos of wild B.C. that he hopes will convince the Canadian government to vote "no" on the pipeline. Here are his pictures.

  1. Campbell signed in favor of the dirty tar sands oil and the dirty oil tankers, before he left. He has been working for Harper all along.

    Harper wants to be an, energy giant. He wants to feel important, on the worlds stage. Neither Harper, nor Campbell give a damn about polluting the planet. Harper and Campbell will con every country they can, into accepting the dirty Alberta tar sands oil.

    BC is a very beautiful province. However, Campbell dirtied our provinces beauty, with the ugly run of the rivers. We also have filthy diseased fish farms.

    All Campbell and Harper see in BC is, how much dirty money can they make by polluting our province.

    They will destroy BC, to achieve Harper's goal. He is rabid for the power and glory, to be on the worlds stage of stupidity.
