^^This link is just one of many to the SK river spill last summer. There's another link to polluted drinking water from the same spill. I'll post it when you've had time to read this one:

Here's the link to how dilbit spills in rivers are not only devastating to birds, fish, and other wildlife, but to humans as well:

Nothing at all. Carry on. Flood as many links as you like with nothing to attach them to.

Is it?
A First Nations community in Saskatchewan is feeling abandoned with poisoned waters in the wake of a major pipeline spill that has leaked massive amounts of oil and other toxins onto its territory.

The devastating impacts that the James Smith Cree Nation observed this week on wildlife, nearly 300 kilometres away from the source of a Husky Energy pipeline spill, are coming to light as the Calgary-based oil company dismissed allegations that it hired an industry-friendly consulting firm to assist with water testing in order to downplay the disaster.
The article seems to be more about a conflict between Husky Energy and first nations related to cleanup efforts and response times.

I'm sure you'll quote the relevant portions you think are important eventually.

^^^^This is fear mongering nonsense.

but rabid right-wing supporters don't care and, like ostriches, bury their heads in the (oil) sands rather than read about any of it.


And this just makes me not want to even listen to you, even if I didn't already know that all the NDP lovers here do is lie, about basically everything.

I'm not asking you to listen to me, GB. All I'm asking you to do is read the reports in many different publications. Google is your friend.

I honestly don't get your point, at all. It just seems so mind-numbingly stupid to be against pipelines, it defies all logic and reason.

Especially if you think you are against them to protect wildlife or the environment.

The reason you don't get my point is because you refuse to read the links I provided. Maybe you should try googling 'wildlife killed by oil spills in rivers' and click on the links you prefer. Eventually you're going to have to admit the inconvenient truth that only a few die-hard 'oil' sands promoters refuse to acknowledge.
