Racist Caveman Canada Frac Rape & LNG Pillage up next with Pieridae’s 5,000 worker camp 50 km from Paqtnkek First Nation? Women and children sacrificed to keep oil and gas polluting the world and CEO pockets bulging? Stop it! “Lead in Love” instead!

Dr. Sandra Steingraber:

Frac’ing is not only systemic racism,

It’s not only misogyny,

It’s not only genocide against Indigenous people,

It’s also hate against people who are queer.

That’s just very plain in the frac’ing fields of the United States. …

The culture that comes in. … When you go into the frac’ing fields of America and you look around in the truck stops, in the bars, in the culture at large, you see things like people wearing T-shirts that say things like:

Going deep and pumping hard.

Frac that hole, Drill baby drill.

A coffee hut called Bakken Babes Breast Coffee.

Big cock country.

The brutality and disappearances that we see…that are violence that accompanies frac’ing. Every time frac’ing comes into a community, we have public health data showing violent victimization against women goes up, drunk driving rates go up, rape, sex trafficing go up…hate crimes, intersections with homophobia and disability rights…those are things we’re keeping an eye on, as we’re gathering data. …

Frac’ing requires a whole landscape to build the infrastructure out on. There’s no kind of industrial zone. It uses our own communities, literaly our own back yards as its factory floor. …

The permitting is easier in some kind of communities. It’s like a kind of frac’ing redlighting.

There’s not just one law for everyone.

‘Man camp’ threat to Mi’kmaw women unchanged since MMIWG inquiry, say advocates, ‘I don’t care what jobs come . . . my entire core tells me that this is wrong,’ says We’koqma’q chief by Nic Meloney, CBC News, Jun 16, 2021

A Mi’kmaw chief and advocate for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls is taking a stand against a proposed $13-billion liquid natural gas plant and work camp in Nova Scotia.

Final investment decisions on the Goldboro LNG project, being developed by Calgary-based Pieridae Energy Ltd., are expected by June 30. The project would require a 5,000-person work camp to build the plant on the province’s eastern shore, around 50 kilometres from Paqtnkek First Nation.

Annie Bernard-Daisley, chief of We’koqma’q First Nation and former president of the Nova Scotia Native Women’s Association, said she’s concerned that resource extraction projects still pose the same threats to Indigenous women outlined two years ago in the final report of the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG).

The report drew a link between the resource extraction industry’s transient worker camps and violence against Indigenous women and called for industry to consider the safety of Indigenous women in project planning and mitigate risks.

Safety concerns for Indigenous women in resource development: MMIWG inquiry

Mi’kmaw opponents of Goldboro LNG say workcamp could be unsafe for women

Bernard-Daisley said while she’s worried about the project’s environmental impact and the stress it may put on nearby communities, the potential harm to Mi’kmaq “tips the scale” for her.

“It’s very well documented that these camps increase risks to our public, who are already at a higher vulnerability,” she said.

“When you look at other camps in the rest of Canada . . . there’s nothing that can compare. I don’t care what jobs come, what money comes, my entire core tells me that this is wrong.

Mi’kmaw communities stand to earn millions from contracts for service delivery at the camp. In a June 4 news release, the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Chiefs said the group will monitor concerns in the event the project moves forward without their participation. Pieridae is also seeking guidance from the female chiefs on how to mitigate safety concerns.

Bernard-Daisley points to data on human trafficking in Mi’kma’ki/the Atlantic region to highlight why she believes sexual violence against Mi’kmaq could be unavoidable if the project is green-lit.

“It’s been two years since [the report] was released,” she said.

“If there was any substantial movement surrounding [work camps] across Canada, perhaps my mindset would have been changed, but I’ve seen no movement. Why are we left to determine the criteria that’s going to build a safer ‘man camp?'”

Pieridae working to address concerns
In an emailed statement, Pieridae spokesperson James Millar said the company is working with Mi’kmaw communities and hopes “to also include the Nova Scotia Native Women’s Association as we look for solutions to address concerns related to the issue.” Hope is totally useless at preventing rape and murder, an escape hatch word loved by industry and its rape-enabling politicians and regulators. No! Not one more rape and murder for Canada’s frac patch!

Millar said Pieridae is preparing information sessions, culturally relevant awareness training, camp safety and security protocols and a “REDress” installation at the entrance to the camp.

Pierdae currently has “policies in place that are strictly followed, including ones such as our Code of Ethical Conduct,” he said. pfffft, on that fake shit.

The decision to move ahead with the project will involve Goldboro LNG potential business partners, including the German company Uniper, which has a 20-year contract to receive half of the project’s total gas product.

A spokesperson for Uniper said the company is a customer of Pierdae’s, and is “not really a big part” of the project’s development. The spokesperson deferred questions about the safety of Indigenous women to back to Pierdae. They don’t give a damn who gets raped, or murdered, as long as they get what they want. Pathetic.

Denise Pictou Maloney, a former employee of the MMIWG inquiry and a family member affected by the issue, said the oil and gas industry needs to change its approach.

“There’s a lot of talk about safety and protections for staff [at the work camps], but the social responsibility is not there,” she said.

“I think that we don’t have to quantify it by saying ‘this many’ lives will be lost and then it’s a crisis. One woman being impacted by this is too much.”

“Nothing says diversity like eight white guys sitting round a table.” So many racist misogynistic Canadian old white men in positions of power enabling rape of women, children, communities, drinking water and our environment.

Frac’ers rape the rule of law and gag Canadian First Nations under the guise of “Benefit Agreements”

New study: Frac’ing is a Big Fat Fail; Appalachia’s frac boom failed to deliver on promises of local jobs and benefits. Of course it did, frac’ers and their enablers knew it would; frac’ing survives on conning investors, massive debt and gagging the harmed. Locals get: health harms; toxic homes, schools, water, air and land; frac’d authorities and courts; massive stress and sleepless noisy stadium light-filled nights; damaged roads and other infrastructure; more women and children raped; more STDs; lies and useless commitments from companies and lobby groups; fraud from experts and regulators; mega $Billions in clean-up.

Why wasn’t Nova Scotia legal profession’s most infamous sexual predator and Premier, Gerald Regan, disbarred? Simple: 1) He was a white man in Caveman Canada; 2) He was a lawyer in Caveman Canada; 3) He was in a position of power in Caveman Canada; 4) “Justice” is not available for raped women (or the environment) in Caveman Canada, just expensive lawyers.

“It’s the judges!” enabling rape and murder of women. No kidding. In Canada too.

Why does Canada not sack bad judges? Do bad judges fill a niche that Rape & Pillage Canada Needs?

Why won’t Canadian politicians lead in love and stop letting oil, gas, frac & LNG companies rape us?

Letter by Paul Strome on “boondoggle” bizarre notoriously polluting Goldboro LNG scheme. “When you take a look at what Pieridae’s performance is on the stock market right now and how Pieridae has done for the past several years in the market you will understand my lack of faith in their ability to perform.”

Another “No Duty of Care” legally immune AER “shell” game to let big polluter Shell avoid clean up? Looks like it. AER gives Shell-Pieridae sour gas marriage a hearing

Hello Pieridae, Are you watching? Another LNG project bites the-damning-environmental-report dust

Is Pieridae going to threaten to SLAPP the Chronicle Herald too, for reporting on *public* information vital to the *public* interest?

Quebec Environmental Law Centre to aid Environnement Vert Plus and spokesperson, Pascal Bergeron, threatened with legal action by Pieridae Energy Ltd. for having shared *public* information vital to the **public interest** that the company wants kept secret even though it demanded nearly $1Billion from the public. Law centre Director Genevieve Paul: “This is akin to an attempted gag order that clearly aims to intimidate people who are mobilized.”

“Bad Corporate Citizen” Pieridae, after demanding nearly $1Billion of public’s money (during a pandemic no less) while promoting dubious Goldboro LNG in Nova Scotia, now threatens legal action to silence concerned citizens. Bradley Toms: “If there’s one way to show you’ve got bad intentions it’s threatening a SLAPP lawsuit against people who are just repeating things that you’ve said.”

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau and Natural Resources Canada Minister Seamus O’Regan:

In my view, LNG is an oil patch con job that will never make economic or environmental sense. It’s a high risk deadly polluting bomb that seems to be mostly about laundering taxpayer money into oil patch CEO pockets. Pieridae, Shell, AIMCo and AER have proven they are untrustworthy and suit their sour marriage well.

Our tax dollars are better used to assist the harmed Canadians, fish and wildlife by oil patch rape and pillage and deal with the industry’s toxic contamination dumped across our country (including in drinking water aquifers). Do not throw away more of our money on more rape and pillage of Canadians and our environment. You must say NO to Pieridae and I request that you file a complaint with the appropriate law society regarding the company’s lawyer’s bullying tactics that in my view are out of bounds and anti-democratic.

Sincerely, Jessica Ernst

“Polluter” Shell & “Penny Stock” Pieridae to retry their sour gas marriage, coached by AER, funded by “Loser” AIMCo. Stewart Shields: “Alberta Conservative gov’ts becoming recognized as the worst petroleum managers in the free world—as this story by the famous Andrew Nikiforuk describes so pointedly!!”

Look out Albertans whose pensions Kenney gave to AIMCo. Crazy Days in Alberta: The Poison Wells File. The province let oil and gas firms create a $100-billion disaster. New example?
