    We have sustainable ways to live – they just don’t make MONEY. That is why it’s not being done. Like David McFatridge stated – these people are gaining the whole world and losing their souls.

    Premier Darrell Pasloski repeats the same mantra heard from every energy corporation “JOBS JOBS JOBS” while they rape the land, destroying the environment for private profit at the expense of the people. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul.

    Please tell me that everything we have been fighting for doesn’t boil down to MONEY – That is my greatest fear – that the love of power will continue to overrun the power of love.. We HAVE to find new ways of producing heat and hydro – ways that do NOT include Killing our mother the EARTH – she is dying, and without her so do WE!!!
