Utah and the western slope are in big trouble, but at least they aren't as messed up at this place......

Canada:
Tar sands- unchecked
#1 world exporter of DDT
#1 world exporter of uranium
Exports 150,000 tons of asbestos:only country in G8
Canada was one of the first countries to sign the Kyoto protocol. It was also the first to formally withdraw from it.

Congratulations Canada! You export cancer...

Tarbuster mining sands in Utah? Oh the shame. Roy, give it up.




I can't believe I was first on this smart ass website.

Thanks for noticing Steve. Canada loves the international accolades!

The asbestos exports are to keep Thetford Mines Quebec and the FLQ from reuniting and blowing up our mail boxes. You know, keep those cards and letters coming!

And Uranium, it's the new green. Like covering the coast of B.C. with a Charlotte's web of transmission lines from all the little dams on all the little rivers and all the little streams...

Here's a complimentary link to help play pin the condom on who's spraying the most moral toxic goo;

Now this is from 1991. Please tell us what has improved in 12 years so us baby seal clubbers may receive the lambasting we so richly deserve.

Jim, don't get me started on the fish farm chaos (unregulated ) on the west coast of BC. I'm sure we can both agree on that being a bad idea?

Anyway, I've got to burn some jet fuel in the AM so I'm no better than the rest....


Ps. Any recommendations on movies/tv show to get me up to snuff on Canada and its structure of governance.? The stuff I've been reading has clearly led me astray :-)
