Linking Water and OilThe Healing Walk in the Tar Sands - see also Twitter #HealingWalk
Les peuples pour la Terre Mère are in the process of a long walk that began in Cacouna, Québec and that has arrived in Kanehsatà:ke. On the 15th of June this group will depart Kanehsatà:ke to walk to Ottawa, arriving on the 22nd of June. They are walking to draw attention to the pipeline and oil refinery (proposed by TransCanada and Enbridge) that will gravely affect the health of Cacouna, Québec and its surrounding waters. Coule pas chez nous is an excellent French language umbrella site that brings together a variety of citizens' groups. Environmental Defence has put together a series of web pages that describe "Energy East" and the Tar Sands Roger Annis has written an interesting and detailed article on Rabble.ca about the problems of transporating oil by rail and by pipeline.
