One of the most horrendous examples yet of Harper promoting the Alberta Oil Sands at the expense of the environment. In fact, this deal will "punish" future governments for trying to protect the environment at the expense of this pact.
It also makes it increasingly difficult to place limits on the green house gas emissions from the Oil Sands and gives Europe unprecedented access to precious natural resources.
In addition, it also exposes delicate ecosystems to European mining in the north and once again, sticks it to First Nations people inhabiting those lands.
And the Harper Government refuses to talk about it!
