There's a few pipelines being built in BC, taking bitumen and LNG to Washington and beyond. My neighbor tells me he suspects they're for water not energy.

İmage

I'm not sure what to think of this 13.gif

What's his rationale for saying that? I'm not familiar with the area, is it all running from, or near large bodies of water?

The SW is running out of water, CA expects crops to fall by 60% this summer. And yes, Williston Lake 150 miles long and many many more lakes and river are in N Alberta and BC. Water, clean water, is becoming extremely scarce in the US especially with fracking, and there's battles going on between the states who have and the ones who have not.

Quote:A few years ago I was privileged to attend a talk by Robert Kennedy Jr. He warned his Canadian audience not be complacent; that the mindset of most Americans is that Canada is keeping "their" water cold for them so it will be there when they need it.

In a water war, Canada could get hosed

It has been predicted numerous times that water will be the next issue wars are fought over. I can see that happening. sad2.gif

Under NAFTA, once water becomes 'commodified' it's sale can not be restricted. IOW, once the first bucket of water sold crosses the border it is a commodity. I'm quite sure that's happened already. But once Canada's lakes and rivers have been drained, then what?

I think Agenda 21 would be implemented before all the water is gone. damned.gif

Yes. Corporations will own the land, the water, and our health. There's been a long standing wish of the CDN gov to take control of all private wells. Another tax. So far it hasn't made progress. Typical though, you do the work, invest in an asset you think belongs to you and the gov grabs all it can. Everything. You're allowed enough to keep working.

Anyways, I thought it worth thinking about. That a pipeline may very well be taking BC's water to a parched California. Water flows uphill to money.

Remember what I said before? When they control the food and water they control the people.

Monsanto nearly controls all of the food.

The water is getting more corporately controlled daily.

They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

never privatize water.
access to drinking water should be a human right.
they tried to do that shït here in my area. the city tried to sell our water resources in a cloak and dagger operation but as soon as the citizens got wind of it they withdrew from the deal.

they're still trying. probably just waiting for the right moment. damned.gif

I don't think privatization of water would go over very well here either. But yes you're probably right, attempts will be made to covertly do it. damned.gif
