If any will look at a map of Northern Saskatchewan they will see it covered with lakes . This lake region extends to the Eastern part of Northern Alberta where the tar sands have their greatest extent. Having canoed and fished in that area it was at one time so very pristine.

Many may not be aware of it but Canada has more freshwater lakes than the rest of the world combined. They teem with fish in this region and support all manner of wildlife . It was not unusual to be on one of these lakes and be the only person there.

It all changed now. The lakes are to be drained and used to store tailings. Fish are now being found with cancers and mutations as chemicals find their way into the water.

Premier Wall can kiss my ass. It a lot cleaner than is the once pristine water now coming out of those lakes thanks to his oil and gas.
