First Nations say they will fight oilsands, pipeline

The Canadian Press -- An alliance of First Nations leaders is preparing to fight proposed new pipelines in the courts and through unspecified direct action.

Native leaders from Canada and the United States were on Parliament Hill on Wednesday to underline opposition to both the Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipelines.

The first would tie the Alberta oil sands to the West Coast, while the second would send bitumen to refineries on the American Gulf Coast.

Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver said the federal government is consulting with First Nations, and is ready to hear their concerns.

Oliver said the government supports peaceful protests as part of a democracy, but "we do expect people to live within the confines of the law."

If they are so sure that the pipelines should not exist then they should get no gas for their cars and no oil or gas to heat their homes.

Some people assume that they have all the answers and don't need to listen to anyone. Well, until it's too late.

The OK indians benefited, and still do, from OK oil
First Nations, there may be a lesson here

Also, Harper, who is from Alberta, has rising popularity. OIl is Now the biggest foreign currency surplus for Canada, surpassing vehicles (a combination of the rising $CA and increased oil production in Alberta, Saskatchewan and BC).

If BHO doesn't approve Keystone the oil will go to China, reduce oil prices there and end polluting more than if refined in the US.

This First Nations issue could force an early decision on oil sands-- especially if BHO continues to stall.

No trust that Pig-Oil will ever do the 'Right' thing for the consumer or the land owner. When they have 100's of lawyers on the payroll to determine what their financial risk is and what to anticipate in settlements when making decisions that improve profits, you know they are in it only for their bottom line and nothing more.
