An Exxon Valdex EVERY WEEK

Back in the day when we gave a shit about things, the wreckage and subsequent spillage from the Exxon Valdez in 1989 really got under our skin.

At the time, 11 million gallons (about 42 million litres) really felt like things couldn’t possibly get worse.

Welcome to the world of today, where the Tar Sands rule this country.

Today, a subset of Environment Canada released a report stating matter of factly that about 6.5 million litres of waste escape from ONE tailings pond in the Tar Sands region into the Athabaska River.

THAT’S ONE EXXON VALDEZ PER WEEK.

PER WEEK.

From ONE tailings pond.

I did a quick search to see just how many more there were 77 square kilometres of tailings ponds, although there didn’t seem to be a lot of ‘shouting from the rooftops’ about the actual number in existence.

Wake up people.  We should be horrified by this atrocity, but we just don’t seem to care.

PS Don’t be surprised to find this department to be closed damn soon, the authors begging for tuna sandwiches in downtown Vancouver in a few months and the report to vaporize in the book kilns of our Fascist leaders.
