SUPREME COURT STRIKES DOWN PROSTITUTION LAWS

A thought for our Justice Minister: Just declare the work zones Endangered Species Habitat – then she’ll have to pay taxes, but won’t be able to use it.
 

Justice Minister Peter MacKay said the government is reviewing the decision and "exploring all possible options to ensure the criminal law continues to address the significant harms that flow from prostitution to communities, those engaged in prostitution, and vulnerable persons."

BUT I WANT MY HELICOPTER AND LAKE HOUSE TOO!

With a hat tip to Kate at Small Dead Animals, today we "juxtapose".
Are farmers on a bender?

"Sales of self-propelled combines, including an $850,000 John Deere (DE) model with iPod system, navigational equipment and heated seats and an attachment that harvests the corn, jumped 40 percent in November."
(...)
"...but we’ve found for the most part farmers are cautious by nature...”

PROPERTY RIGHTS ADVOCATES HELP POISONED FAMILIES; REGULATORS DITHER

Subject: Families forced from homes by Baytex Energy . . . Let's help them get home for Christmas
 
Colleen,
 
I am helping some farm families near Peace River who have been forced from their homes by an unusual form of oil sands production.  Baytex Energy is operating dozens of oil sands wells that are connected to 86 super-heated bitumen tanks around these people’s homes and farms.  In fact, all of these heated tanks and wells are within a 1 by 5 mile area. 
 
But Baytex is open-venting the heated tanks to maximize production.  The aerosol plume and tar-solvent like smell I encountered when I was up there on October 28th was unlike anything I have every experienced before.  It was overwhelming.
 
These people and their kids started to get sick and had to abandon their homes.  The government is even concerned and has called a public inquiry but that does not get these people back into their homes or relocated. 
 
We need people power to help get this fixed. 
 
It turns out that the banks like CIBC, BMO, RBC and others are the major shareholders in Baytex.  The hope is that if enough people email the banks and other institutional shareholders about what Baytex is doing that Baytex will get the message and stop harming these people.
 
Below is an email from the families explaining their nightmare and how easily people can help.  The are not looking for donations, just people to email the banks and shareholders. 
 
All they have to do is go to their Stop Baytex website, and click on the yellow banner at the top.  A fresh email will open for people to send their concerns directly to the shareholders.  Here is the link to their website:  http://www.stopbaytex.ca/
 
The Labrecques are hardworking, honest farm families.  They really need our help.  It’s just wrong what’s happening to them.  Please send this to others. 
 
Also, here is a link to YouTube video a videographer from Britain made this summer that shows firsthand the nightmare these families are living:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqfFeKWm9lc
 
Thanks for your help with this.

EPA: FRIEND OR FOE OF THE FARMER?

"We at EPA really want to partner with them (farmers/landowners) to get to the common goals we all share: cleaner air, cleaner water, cleaner land..."

http://www.agweb.com/article/epa_friend_or_foe_of_the_farmer_NAA_Tyne_Morgan/

Nothing quite like a "partner" who takes your property rights by force of statutory law and regulation, and then threatens you with jail if you don't like it.

Thank goodness there will be a "comment period" prior to the taking.


Sounds just like here in Ontario!

GAIN A TURBINE - LOSE YOUR LAND. SOLAR PANELERS BEWARE

"Wind companies operating in Ontario are frequently owned outside Canada, and are not interested in “saving the planet for our grandchildren” or “curing climate change” as those weary clich├ęs would have you believe. Rather, they’re only after the biggest possible profits guaranteed over a period of from 21 to 40 years by our provincial government using the proceeds of Ontario residents’ constantly increasing hydro bills and taxes."
