    Talk about hell with the lid off! This is excruciating to listen to, but we’ve known about this insane negligence and slow death for years. Nothing is ever done because the short-term careerist politician types understand only too well on which side their radio-active bread is buttered & by whom.

    The heavy metal market is god. All means are justified by the one and only sanctified end, extractive corporate profit at any cost. That is the precious capitalist way, an idiocy that beggars belief ~ we must all get all the benefit but share none of the responsibility.

    Canada is on the same page as the criminal US, Rio Tinto and all their kindred fascist bio-phobes. Remember this name ~ Dr. Jim Harding, on Canada’s Deadly Secret? The truth is ugly and gut wrenching.

    It fills me with deep sadness and then the rage wells up as I hear these stories of Gehenna. One day the Earth will split and swallow up this parasitic affliction upon mankind and scourge of our native planet, consuming the persecutors of wholesome beauty that gorge on predatory destruction.

    Owe Aku!
