… For gawd sakes, take plenty of pictures this time -and turn them into posters! I was recently at the Saturday Market here in Portland and was asking all the Photographer Vendors if any of them had taken any pictures of the Green Peace activists who did the same thing a few years back off of the St Johns bridge. None of them did -and they all regretted it…

British Columbia another most beautiful place on earth. That tanker highway will pass through the wild Olympic Coast, The Makah Native American People of The Cape the Beginning of the World the tip of the Olympic Pennisula, Olympic National Park Shi Shi and Kalaoch beachs, Gulf, and San Juan Islands, Vancouver Island, Oregon Coast, Northern California Coast. The Gulf Islands are a Canadian National Park Reserve. Marine life to include Orca Pods. Numerous Native First Nation People’s Waterways. The list goes on and on; however, Democratic Governors Jay Inslee Washington, Kate Brown Oregon, and Jerry Brown of course California appear silent on the tanker traffic. What gives governors? Also, do not forget the First Nation People and the Islands of Haida Gwaii to the North of Vancouver B.C.

Good for them. A little concerned, hope that line we see in the picture is not his/her belay line. Always a good day for rappelling.

Hold on to what is good,
Even if it’s a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.

SUPPORT Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it’s a long way from here.

Hold on to your life,
Even if it’s easier to let go.

Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I’ll be gone away from you.

Yanis Varufakis on democracy and corporatism - same underlying caveats - we all need each other.

Today may be a good day, but tomorrow may not. These companies are not aftaid of protesters. A more aggresive plan may change their minds if you are willing. If not you will lose again. Think about whats coming down the pike…them think about how much we have lost.

The Kinder-Morgan-Trudeau pipeline is a disaster in so many ways. One of the last semi-pristine wilderness coastal areas on this continent will be ruined by it.
These activists directly stopping the death machine are a good example for anyone who is healthy and courageous.
Read and emulate the heroes in the book The Monkey Wrench Gang, and here’s a handy manual:

Wow, when Canada has declared war on water in B.C and America, then Canada also declares war on all the people in BC and America.

So, QUI BONO here? Who benefits? Its not the PEOPLE and its not the WATER, and it’s not the ENVIRONMENT----------I like what Rhode Island is doing —suing the OIL companies for ruining the present and the future!

What do we have to do, to get one of these brave souls to run for President, Congress, Governor, Mayor, County Council?

You gotta love these people. They are the best of us.

Cetacea. These waters are the whale capitol of the pacific.

Cetacea is a planned port for super tankers that will load from the Kinder-Morgan pipeline by order of clueless Trudeau. Same trip for the richest salmon river on Earth, to the north.

Giant oil and fracked gas tankers will churn their way through the cetacean whale and dolphin capitol and then on across the Pacific Ocean. Perhaps to fuel slave ships harvesting shrimp for added big-box savings.

Trudeau is obviously NOT a leader, but a stooge following the orders given him by his korporate owners.  Politicians in Canada are no better than politicians in the U.S. — minions of the Fat Cats who
run the Korpocracy under which we live.

Because we all share and depend the one life after all.
