Former chief of the Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation Terrance Nelson announces his run for national chief of the Assembly of First Nations:
1. Support the Yinka Dene! The Northern Gateway project is dead if I am elected national chief. The Kinder Morgan expansion will become the next topic of discussion after Gateway. This will wake up the Asians, the Americans, and the world that First Nations in Canada will not simply stand by the wayside as our resource wealth is sold off by the immigrants. The immigrant “free ride” on our natural resource wealth is over if I am elected national chief.
Yoiks! On the other hand, at least he didn't refer to us all as "whitey".
Meanwhile, Pattison Outdoor has told Greenpeace that it has rejected their billboard re oil-spills in the Alberta tar-sands. That'll keep those smelly hippies quiet for damn sure!
Meanwhile, a third Alberta oil spill! The Energy Resources Conservation Board, Alberta's oil and gas "regulator", helpfully explains that they usually get about two spills a day, so this recent run is actually pretty decent.
