FFS! Calgary Stampede “committing to” no longer covering up rape of kids for decades isn’t good enough. “Committing to” means nothing. Just look to frac’ers, the popes and catholic church for ample example of that.
Marky Mark@MrkStdngr: The whole “Transgendered People are grooming our Children” was a Lie made up by the establishment involving Church and State to deflect from the real abusers (Priests, Executives, etc). True: “Statistically your child is far safer with a … Continue reading
Love. Courage. Truth. Integrity. Kindness. They called you crazy to deny it. Rest well Sinéad. “It’s asking for trouble, to stick out your neck.” You did it anyways and served raped kids justice when no authority would (too cowardly to take on the popes).

‘The Petroleum Industry is a Fire Industry.’ Interview with John Vaillant on his new book Fire Weather, The Making of a Beast
In my view it’s propaganda to call it fire season. There’s no such thing. Earth has, or used to have, four seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter. It’s human greed, selfishness and pollution-induced climate change/global warming causing extreme conditions leading … Continue reading

Misogynistic Canadian “justice” strikes victims yet again. David Kukoly, ex cop who sexually abused 11 women, gets rewarded by Justice Richard Blouin with tiny sentence to spend sweetly at home even though the judge said some assaults were “harrowing” causing “a significant impact on the psychological health” of victims.

Sexism in science: Poor pathetic old white man Nobel laureate Kurt Wüthrich claims diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) discriminates against men. Science: “60 women have been awarded Nobel Prizes, compared with 892 men. Just five of this year’s 39 invited Lindau speakers were women.”
As a woman with a career in science working for decades in the even more sexist oil and gas industry in misogynistic Alberta, this Lindau Nobel news is hideous, but typical. It’s standard abusive behaviour by many old white men … Continue reading

Canada needs to start jailing law-violating polluting frac’ers too. Ohio: Benjamin Altier and his company ordered to pay more than $20,000.00 in fines and sentenced to 30 days in jail, 50 hours community service, three years of community control for theft (fabricating wastewater disposal tickets and taking money for them), dumping waste on land, improperly storing the rest.
In my view, the reason corporations like Teck, tarsands miners, and Encana/Ovintiv et al intentionally break the law and pollute, is because they know Canadian “regulators” and courts will let them get away with it more often than not. And … Continue reading
