Flooded Calgary Could Be Sans Power for Months

June 24, 2013

Calgary, the heart of Canada’s energy sector, could be without power for weeks or even months in the wake of floods that have forced 100,000 people from their homes and killed at least four. In the aftermath of the floods, the worst in the province of Alberta’s history, “we are facing an absolutely gargantuan task,” to restore power and infrastructure, a city official says. The heavy rain was blamed for a 750-barrel spill from an oil pipeline in the north of the province, Reuters reports.

Keystone XL Activists Labeled Possible Eco-Terrorists in Internal TransCanada Documents

June 14, 2013

 

Documents recently obtained by Bold Nebraska show that TransCanada – owner of the hotly-contested Keystone XL (KXL)tar sands pipeline – has colluded with an FBI/DHS Fusion Center in Nebraska, labeling non-violent activists as possible candidates for “terrorism” charges and other serious criminal charges.

Further, the language in some of the documents is so vague that it could also ensnare journalists, researchers and academics, as well.
