couple of the reasons why I called an tried hard to speak to you again

Please don't try to tell me that your office does not know what

Subject: Attn PAULINE PHILIBERT and ARNOLD HADLEY of the New Brunswick
Police Commission

New Brunswick Police Commission
435 King Street
Fredericton, New Brunswick
E3B 1E5

A letter to support my complaint about various police forces in New
Brunswick will follow these emails just as I promised on the phone to
you people today.

I have no understanding as to why the Police Commission nor anyone
else holding a governmental mandate in the Province of New Brunswick
has never called me back or answered one email in nearly four years.
Shawn Graham should at least recognize his own documents to my framer
friend, Werner Bock from the time when he sat in opposition and was
the agricutural critic at the same time .

It appears to me that I am not the only one to get mad at the
malicious incompetence of John Foran and the cops of New Brunswick.
What is even more interesting though is the fact that John Foran was
once mad at the Police Commission and they way they investigated
things so secretly against the public's best interests. EH Mr. Volpe?
Rest assured that I ain't holding my breath for the police to continue
to harass me anymore after their nonsense yesterday. Nor will I wait
to see Wayne Steeves say or do the right thing after he has covered up
my concerns about the severe lack of police integrity for his politcal
party's benefit for four god damned years.

For the recod these Youtubes that are this arseholes favoutites were
created by the RCMP and I have no doubt whatsoever the people
slandering me are cops as well.

At least his ID is correct. This is a big old can of worms. N'est Pas?

Mr. David R Amos

Dear Mr. Amos:

On a number of occasions you have called or sent e-mails our office to
raise matters which are of pressing concern to you.

Each time we have tried to respond by explaining to you the relatively
narrow mandate of this Commission and the limits of our powers to deal
with the matters which are of concern to you. I must stress, once
again, that the purpose of this Commission is to provide the public
with an opportunity to make complaints concerning the conduct of
members of the RCMP in the performance of their duties. We have
neither the expertise nor the legal authority to permit us to become
involved in issues beyond the scope of this mandate.

While it is clearly not the intention of the Commission to prevent you
from making complaints against members of the RCMP, an analysis of
your numerous contacts with the Commission indicates that your
concerns fall well outside the confines of our mandate. Further, your
frequent e-mails have been disruptive and unproductive for both you
and for the staff of this office.

Should you determine that some point in the future you have a
complaint concerning the conduct of a member of the RCMP in the
performance of his or her duties, please submit it to the Commission
by Canada Post only. As of now, your e-mails will be deleted unread.

Yours truly,

Andrée Leduc
Enquiries and Complaints Analyst

Dear Mr. Amos:

This will acknowledge receipt of a copy of your e-mail of December 29,
2006 to Corporal Warren McBeath of the RCMP.

Because of the nature of the allegations made in your message, I have
taken the measure of forwarding a copy to Assistant Commissioner Steve
Graham of the RCMP "J" Division in Fredericton.

Dear Mr. Amos,

Thank you for your follow up e-mail to me today. I was on days off over
the holidays and returned to work this evening. Rest assured I was not
ignoring or procrastinating to respond to your concerns.

As your attachment sent today refers from Premier Graham, our position
is clear on your dead calf issue: Our forensic labs do not process
testing on animals in cases such as yours, they are referred to the
Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown who can provide these
services. If you do not choose to utilize their expertise in this
instance, then that is your decision and nothing more can be done.

As for your other concerns regarding the US Government, false
imprisonment and Federal Court Dates in the US, etc... it is clear that
Federal authorities are aware of your concerns both in Canada and the
US. These issues do not fall into the purvue of Detachment policing in
Petitcodiac, NB.

It was indeed an interesting and informative conversation we had on
December 23rd, and I wish you well in all of your future endeavors.

Subject: Attn Rob Moir I have read some of your work perhaps you
should read something from years ago
Date: Wednesday, April 30, 2008, 9:46 PM

First things first meet Lenny Gold, Dougy Foster and Joey Podwika. You
can be certain that these wicked bastards know exactly who I am and
are no doubt quite nervous that the Feds have not figured out a way to
shut me up yet.

Everybody knows that far away corporate lawyers such as these three
stooges have been making the big score off us dumb Maritimers forever
and a day and have been laughing their nasty arses off at us all the
way to their buddies' bank. They appear to fear only one Maritimer and
that is yours truly. Ask them if I am liar or not as I speak of the
Bank Fraud Tax Fraud, Securities Fraud and Murders that you are afraid
to talk about. Shawn Graham should know everthing he partied hardy
with my G.A.L. Brian Bixby's Law firm in Beantown one year ago and I
effected an introduction with the lawyer Leonard Gold because that
very dumb Maritimer came to Beantown to talk to many evil Yankees ten
times more worldly wise than Shawny Baby ever could be.

Your laments Bobby Baby about lost water really rot my socks. You
should know I covered that base years ago and everybody just ran away
scared. Ask the Minister Larry Cannon why I laughed when he gave out a
little federal gold just before Bernie Lord had the writ dropped in
2006 in the provincial election. It was very telling thing just like
all the money being passed out right now.

I noticed that you and all you NDP pals ignored the fact that I ran in
that election as well as the Fed one and the one in Nova Scotia
earlier that year. Yea I saw you and Pat Hannratty ducking out the
back just as I walked in that night in January of 2006. Why you didn't
answer my friend Jack's letter either spoke to your personal integrity
EH? If Rob Moore or none of the Conservatives on the Hill faraway
won't talk to you just ask the lawyer Smith in Saint John the boss of
the NB Securities Commission if I didn't raise a little Hell while he
filled the other lawyer Nicholson's boots in PUB just long enough to
cram the pipeline through to the trunk while the election was on and I
was intervening in the pipeline matter in Saint John at the same time
and Norm Miller and his lawyer ignored my arguments but read my words
about it all on the web all the same.

Better yet why not have some fun and ask the very strange PCS dudes in
Sussex why they had my photo posted at the gate and the RCMP were to
be called if I made an appearance there while I was running against
your pal John Carty in Fat Fred City. Your clue to their malice is UBS
and another lawyer named Dave Aufhauser whom I have been battling with
for six long years. Do you even know who he is? Rest assured Lenny,
Dougy and Joey do.

Whereas you trust the words of the very malicious CBC or the Irvings
and not mine read what the CBC were saying one year ago. Then read
what the local Irving rag wrote about me four god damned years ago.

For the record Bobby Baby I still remember you commenting on the
trouble I was having with the Feds so that my minor son could return
to the USA to comfort his mother and how little milk of human kindness
you have had in your greedy little PHD soul ever since. Can ya tell I
don't like you not even a little bit?

Read on Teacher pay particular attention to my words about oil and
gas.and crossborder public corruption. For the record I have always
considered the water in Penobsquis a federal matter concerning the NEB
and if they ignore me then maybe i would take it up in the Federal
Court. It won't go anywhere though if Maritimers don't finally wise up
start listening to me.

FYI I have started to upload some of my ducument for the public to
view. They can be found here and there will be a great deal more to
follow as my time allows.

This Maritimer Danny Boy Fitzgeral who is studying for his PHD in
Holland made several interesting blogs about me as he attacked my
integrity. In the end methinks I may have turned him my way and in
return I left his school out of my battles.

Perhaps you should study them sometime EH Teacher? You should take
careful notice that college degrees mean less than nothing to me. Just
like any true Maritimer it is fighters, foresters, farmers and
fishermen I admire not rich snots that do not understand the meaning
of hard work. That said it does appear that Danny Boy does work very
hard on his blog. I do know how long such things take and his blog is
a fine and as fancy as anyones and constantly updated. I particularly
apprciate the fact he leaves his comments open without moderation.

Also for the record I signed your Fake Left friends' petition.

Penobsquis Deserves Safe Water

98 Fran Oliver There is no excuse for this situation. A responsible
provincial government and a responsible corporation would never allow
local families to bear the financial and social burden, likely
resulting from a provincial mining operation, while government and
corporation choke on huge profits.

99 David Raymond Amos Ask Garth Moore why my picture is posted at the
gate while I ran for Parliament will ya?

My friends tell me tha the Photo the PCS dudes had posted as some sort
of criminal the RCMP were watching out for was clipped from the pages
of the Kings County Record that contained the following articles.

The following email and two deleted blogs can be found within one
pigheaded Maritimer's blog about government injustice. After the
Irvings had his pal's Chucky Leblanc' former blog wiped out I had to
tease and torture him into doing the right thing and allowing just one
of my comments to stand. Some much for Freedom on Speech on the
Internet when even Maritime bloggers are unethical EH teacher?

For the record only the Gypsy and Danny Boy fitzgerald have allowed
all of my comments to stand the test of time and ethics. Thus far so I
must give credit where credit is due. Your chosen profession such as
it is should at least understand that EH Mr. Moir?

Here is my last post in the blogs tonight. Obviously I do not pretend
to be somebody I am not. N'est Pas?

Hello Lisa,

David Amos asked me to contact you. I met him last June after he became
an independent (not representing any political party) candidate in our
election that was held June 28. He was a candidate in our constituency of
Fundy (now called Fundy-Royal).

I wrote a profile story about him, as I did all other candidates. That
story appeared in the Kings County Record June 22. A second story, written
by one of my reporters, appeared on the same date, which was a report on
the candidates' debate held June 18.

As I recall David Amos came last of four candidates in the election.
The winner got 14,997 votes, while Amos got 358.

I have attached the two stories that appeared, as well as a photo
taken by reporter Erin Hatfield during the debate. I couldn't find the photo
that ran, but this one is very similar.

Raising a Little Hell- Lively Debate Provokes Crowd

By Erin Hatfield

"If you don't like what you got, why don't you change it? If your
world is all screwed up, rearrange it."

The 1979 Trooper song Raise a Little Hell blared on the speakers at
the 8th Hussars Sports Center Friday evening as people filed in to
watch the Fundy candidates debate the issues. It was an accurate, if
unofficial, theme song for the debate.

The crowd of over 200 spectators was dwarfed by the huge arena, but as
they chose their seats, it was clear the battle lines were drawn.
Supporters of Conservative candidate Rob Moore naturally took the blue
chairs on the right of the rink floor while John Herron's Liberalswent
left. There were splashes of orange, supporters of NDP Pat Hanratty,
mixed throughout. Perhaps the loudest applause came from a row towards
the back, where supporters of independent candidate David Amos sat.

The debate was moderated by Leo Melanson of CJCW Radio and was
organized by the Sussex Valley Jaycees. Candidates wereasked a barrage
of questions bypanelists Gisele McKnight of the Kings County Record
and Lisa Spencer of CJCW.

Staying true to party platforms for the most part, candidates
responded to questions about the gun registry, same sex marriage, the
exodus of young people from the Maritimes and regulated gas prices.
Herron and Moore were clear competitors,constantly challenging each
other on their answers and criticizing eachothers' party leaders.
Hanratty flew under the radar, giving short, concise responses to the
questions while Amos provided some food for thought and a bit of comic
relief with quirky answers. "I was raised with a gun," Amos said in
response to the question of thenational gun registry. "Nobody's
getting mine and I'm not paying 10 cents for it."

Herron, a Progressive Conservative MP turned Liberal, veered from his
party'splatform with regard to gun control. "It was ill advised but
well intentioned," Herron said. "No matter what side of the house I am
on, I'm voting against it." Pat Hanratty agreed there were better
places for the gun registry dollars to be spent.Recreational hunters
shouldn't have been penalized by this gun registry," he said.

The gun registry issues provoked the tempers of Herron and Moore. At
one point Herron got out of his seat and threw a piece of paper in
front of Moore. "Read that," Herron said to Moore, referring to the
voting record of Conservative Party leader Steven Harper. According to
Herron, Harper voted in favour of the registry on the first and second
readings of the bill in 1995. "He voted against it when it counted, at
final count," Moore said. "We needa government with courage to
register sex offenders rather than register the property of law
abiding citizens."

The crowd was vocal throughout the evening, with white haired men and
women heckling from the Conservative side. "Shut up John," one woman
yelled. "How can you talk about selling out?" a man yelled whenHerron
spoke about his fear that the Conservatives are selling farmers out.

Although the Liberal side was less vocal, Kings East MLA Leroy
Armstrong weighed in at one point. "You're out of touch," Armstrong
yelled to Moore from the crowd when the debate turned to the cost of
post-secondary education. Later in the evening Amos challenged
Armstrong to a public debate of their own. "Talk is cheap. Any time,
anyplace," Armstrong responded.

As the crowd made its way out of the building following the debate,
candidates worked the room. They shook hands with well-wishers and
fielded questions from spectators-all part of the decision-making
process for the June 28 vote.

Cutline – David Amos, independent candidate in Fundy, with some of his
favourite possessions—motorcycles.


The Unconventional Candidate

David Amos Isn't Campaigning For Your Vote, But….

By Gisele McKnight

FUNDY—He has a pack of cigarettes in his shirt pocket, a chain on his
wallet, a beard at least a foot long, 60 motorcycles and a cell phone
that rings to the tune of "Yankee Doodle."

Meet the latest addition to the Fundy ballot—David Amos.

The independent candidate lives in Milton, Massachusetts with his wife
and two children, but his place of residence does not stop him from
running for office in Canada.

One has only to be at least 18, a Canadian citizen and not be in jail
to meet Elections Canada requirements.

When it came time to launch his political crusade, Amos chose his
favourite place to do so—Fundy.

Amos, 52, is running for political office because of his
dissatisfaction with politicians.

"I've become aware of much corruption involving our two countries," he
said. "The only way to fix corruption is in the political forum."

The journey that eventually led Amos to politics began in Sussex in
1987. He woke up one morning disillusioned with life and decided he
needed to change his life.

"I lost my faith in mankind," he said. "People go through that
sometimes in midlife."

So Amos, who'd lived in Sussex since 1973, closed his Four Corners
motorcycle shop, paid his bills and hit the road with Annie, his 1952
Panhead motorcycle.

"Annie and I rode around for awhile (three years, to be exact)
experiencing the milk of human kindness," he said. "This is how you
renew your faith in mankind – you help anyone you can, you never ask
for anything, but you take what they offer."

For those three years, they offered food, a place to sleep, odd jobs
and conversation all over North America.

Since he and Annie stopped wandering, he has married, fathered a son
and a daughter and become a house-husband – Mr. Mom, as he calls

He also describes himself in far more colourful terms—a motorcyclist
rather than a biker, a "fun-loving, free-thinking, pig-headed
individual," a "pissed-off Maritimer" rather than an activist, a proud
Canadian and a "wild colonial boy."

Ironically, the man who is running for office has never voted in his life.

"But I have no right to criticize unless I offer my name," he said.
"It's alright to bitch in the kitchen, but can you walk the walk?"

Amos has no intention of actively campaigning.

"I didn't appreciate it when they (politicians) pounded on my door
interrupting my dinner," he said. "If people are interested, they can
call me. I'm not going to drive my opinions down their throats."

And he has no campaign budget, nor does he want one.

"I won't take any donations," he said. "Just try to give me some. It's
not about money. It goes against what I'm fighting about."

What he's fighting for is the discussion of issues – tainted blood,
the exploitation of the Maritimes' gas and oil reserves and NAFTA, to
name a few.

"The political issues in the Maritimes involve the three Fs – fishing,
farming and forestry, but they forget foreign issues," he said. "I'm
death on NAFTA, the back room deals and free trade. I say chuck it
(NAFTA) out the window.

NAFTA is the North American Free Trade Agreement which allows an
easier flow of goods between Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Amos disagrees with the idea that a vote for him is a wasted vote.

"There are no wasted votes," he said. "I want people like me,
especially young people, to pay attention and exercise their right.
Don't necessarily vote for me, but vote."

Although…if you're going to vote anyway, Amos would be happy to have
your X by his name.

"I want people to go into that voting booth, see my name, laugh and
say, 'what the hell.'"

Risk and reward: When rural life meets economic development

There are two oft-heard phrases in the village of Penobsquis.

"The streets should be paved in gold, but instead they're sinking,"
says Beth Nixon, a resident here for nearly her entire life. "And
Sussex got the boom and Penobsquis got the shaft."

The remark sparks laughter from the seven people sitting around the
dining room table.

They're pretty happy for disgruntled citizens, or "Concerned
Citizens," as their group is officially called.

They've gathered to hold a weekly steering committee meeting, where
the direction of a broader group, about 60 citizens concerned for the
well-being of their community, is set.

Crowded around a computer screen, they flip through pictures and
charts, and bring up news articles. The Internet has allowed them to
organize and find information with ease. They've even built their own

They share fruit and drinks and go about business, trying their best
to ignore the flash of my camera in the room. They talk about how
Penobsquis has evolved right before their eyes. It seems like
yesterday the village was like every other rural community: a
tranquil, pristine farming community with rolling green pastures; a
tight-knit place, with a village hall, a volunteer fire department, a
church, and an outdoor rink. Today, roads are busy with 18-wheelers,
everyone drives a big pickup truck, and natural gas well pads are
scattered throughout the community.

Those at the table tell different stories about how they've been
affected by the development of their village, located about 15
kilometres north-east of Sussex, New Brunswick.

Chris Bell hosts the meetings every week, and also serves as chair of
the Local Service District in the Parish of Cardwell. She lost running
water into her home when the groundwater well on her property
mysteriously ran dry in 2004.

"We went to the expense and we deepened the spring, and it lasted a
month, and we ended up drilling a new well," says Bell.

That well dried up after two months.

Nearly 50 other homes nearby lost their groundwater source between
that time and 2008.

Nixon, whose family also lost its well, recalls when her nine-year-old
son Allan, who was three at the time, woke one night to what she
thought was an explosion in the furnace.

"The duct work shook, he woke up screaming and attacking his bedside
table," she remembers.

She's convinced the boom came from blasting operations going on nearby.

"I called my husband and he came home and checked at the trailer where
they were doing the monitoring for the blasting," she says. "And they
told him where they were doing the blasting, which was about 400
meters from my house , but they laughed at him when he said our house
has shook."

Another woman, Beth Norrad, says there are sinkholes on her property.

The problems people here experience vary, from living without running
water to being kept up at night by a noisy grouting station or the
bright lights from gas flaring on natural gas well pads. Some say
subsidence from the mine is causing their homes to sink, and others
even complain about frequently chipped windshields because of the
heavy truck traffic on the roads.

And though the events don't appear similar at all, each person at this
table believes the occurrences are directly connected to the ongoing
industrial development of their rural community.

Nixon says what's happening is simple: the quality of life of some is
being sacrificed for the economic prosperity of many.

"The residents of Penobsquis are paying," she says. "We're not only
paying with our water, we're not only paying with reduced property
values because of the (gas) flares, and light pollution, and increased
traffic. Our homes are sinking, so it's a straight-out loss."

Little Texas

A lot is happening here for a village of about 600 people.

You know you've arrived in Penobsquis when you drive past the two
potash mines on opposite sides of the old Trans Canada Highway, Route

On the left is the existing mine, which has stood there since 1983. On
the right is continuing construction on the new $1.66-billion
mineshaft, which will replace the old one by 2011 or 2012. PotashCorp,
the world's largest potash producer, runs the old mine and is building
the new one.

A few kilometres down the highway, in the old Rednex meatstick plant,
is Corridor Resources, a Halifax-based junior oil and gas company,
which set up shop in Penobsquis in the late 90s. Corridor is operating
29 natural gas wells in Penobsquis and the surrounding area. Its
deposit, the McCully gas field, lies deep in the ground beneath the
village, spans horizontally for 15 kilometres, and sits five
kilometres wide, according the Department of Natural Resources. The
first two gas wells began operating in April of 2003 in partnership
with the mine.

"That's when a small village became a lot like a mini Texas," says
Bruce Northrup, the Progressive Conservative MLA for Kings East. "Gas
pads were being established, big 18-wheelers running around
24-hours-a-day, flames coming out of gas stacks, lighting up the whole

It was later that year people in the community began to experience
problems with their ground water source.

In 2004, 15 houses lost their groundwater well, and by 2008, almost 50
homes were without running water.

The Water War

"For Rent: One dry well. $400/year."

That sign is nailed to Gordon Fraser's front porch. Fraser lives in a
small, white paint-chipped house on 2.2 acres of land in Penobsquis.

Inside, he sits at the kitchen table, chewing on canned sardines.

He may be 70-years-old, but he's still sharp, and extremely skeptical.
He's nervous about being recorded, and asks if I'm there secretly on
behalf of the mine. After I field a few questions about my background
and why I'm there to see him, he opens up.

"Don't ever get married," he tells me.

His wife left him five years ago, and he now lives alone with his two
dogs, Sandy and Sabian.

His house is like a time capsule. There's a noose hanging from the
wall above the stove. A friend who worked at the Dorchester
penitentiary gave it to him. In an adjacent room, he's got a turntable
and about 3, 000 records, he guesses. On the table, he flips through
an old Saint John newspaper from the 1970s. There's a dusty CD player
that looks like it's never been used, and pinned to the wall is a
painting of a cardinal he says the notorious New Brunswick murderer
Alan Leger gave to him.

"I was at his trial in Burton, and I wrote and asked him for that,
what he was drawing, and he sent it me," Fraser laughs. "He was
drawing while the trial was going on."

Beside that hangs a framed certificate, made out to Gordon Fraser, for
his twenty years of service to the government of New Brunswick.

He says nothing when asked if he finds it funny that it's the
government he's fighting in an ongoing water dispute that has left
Fraser to live without running water since September.

He has been collecting rain, melting snow and lugging water from a
nearby stream to protest what he calls unfair treatment by the
provincial government.

"I think I've paid enough taxes in my lifetime, that I shouldn't have
to sign a god damned contract to have a drink of water, and pay for
something that was taken from me," says Fraser.

His frustration sums up how more than 60 people in Penobsquis feel
about the fee being imposed on the community for use of a new public
water system. They believe seismic work from the local mine cracked
their aquifer and caused water wells at almost 50 homes to run dry.
They say imposing a $400 annual fee to use the system is unfair.

The government supplied affected homes with tanks, and had been
trucking in free water for household use three times a week. In some
cases, people were receiving deliveries for up to six years. The
government stopped the deliveries when the new water system was turned
on in September 2009, leaving residents no choice but to sign a
contract and hook in.

Northrup tried to establish a fund to pay for the user fees, but his
bill was defeated at second reading in the legislature.

To make matters worse, the government backed out of a promise it made
to residents that would have allowed them to form their own water
commission so they could operate the system. Instead, the job was
farmed out to Sussex Corner, a neighbouring municipality, because the
province didn't want to give the responsibility to an unincorporated

Out of necessity, every person against a fee gave in and signed a
contract with Sussex Corner.

All of them, except for Fraser.

He says he'll never pay.

"It's like someone stealing your car and then selling it back to you," he

Stephen Battah, executive director of community funding and technical
services with the Department of Local Government, says for its part,
the government has done a good job managing the Penobsquis water
dispute. Aside from trucking the water, it paid to decommission the
dried-up wells, and hooked users in to the new system free of charge.
Battah says his department is aware of a senior citizen living without
running water, but stressed that no one can hook into the $9.2 million
system free because it costs money to operate.

"We understand that (losing water) wasn't their fault, but it's not
our fault either," says Battah. "We can't allow anyone not to pay a
fee, because then you've got 45 others who won't want to pay."

So whose responsibility is it, and where did the water go?

A 2005 study, commissioned by the potash mine, was inconclusive in
determining whether or not water flowing into the mine at the time was
from the same aquifer the residents were drawing from.

"Residents began seeing a decline in their water wells, some weren't
able to produce the water that they needed, and early on there was an
investigation to see if there was a link between mining operations and
water loss," said mine manager Mark Fracchia, who has worked there
since 2007. "And at best, the results were inconclusive."

Because PotashCorp mines at depths of 400 to 700 meters, Fracchia says
it isn't likely the water they were drawing was coming from a
residential aquifer, which typically sit less than 120 meters from the

"It's a complex geology in the area, and most water wells draw water
from the aquifers close to the surface," he said. "From what we found
from our test, the only thing we could tell is that we were drawing
water from an aquifer well below those that were producing water for
nearby residents."

The explanations don't fly with Fraser.

As far as he's concerned, it was industry that ran his well dry, and
there's nothing anyone can say to make him believe otherwise.

"The potash (mine) sucked the water out, Corridor over blasted and
choked the veins off, so there'll never be water here, that's what
happened," he says.

The Boom

It was 1978 and Beth Nixon was in grade two when construction began on
the Penobsquis potash mine.

"I thought, 'this is great, maybe someday we'll become a city,'" she
remembers. "It was at that time time Sussex got a second mall, and it
sort of seemed neat and cool."

She grew up on a family farm on the Back Road, one of the main roads
in Penobsquis.

"The only houses were farm houses," she says.

It was a time of big change for Penobsquis. Until then, there was only
a two-room school house, and a church, and everyone knew everyone,
Nixon says. New houses were being built, and new families were moving
in. The mine began operating in July of 1983, and it has been a staple
in the community ever since.

But in 2007, water inflow problems peaked, raising concerns about the
future of the mine and the 340 well-paying jobs it provides the

No one wanted a repeat of what happened 30 kilometres away at the
Cassidy Lake mine, which closed in 1997 because of water inflow. That
was a hectic time for families in Sussex and the surrounding area.
Kids' dads were packing up and heading west to find work. Entire
families were uprooted and gone from the community in weeks.

So when in July 2007, PotashCorp announced it would construct a new,
$1.66-billion mine shaft across the road from the existing mine,
people were relieved. New jobs were available and people were eager.

"The mine held information meetings, and they thought they'd get
people there who were worried about environmental stuff," says
Charlene MacKenzie, a newspaper reporter at the Kings County Record
who covered the water dispute. "The people lined up, and all they
wanted to know was 'when are you hiring?'"

The new mine is expected to have a 25 to 30 year life span, and has
created more than 700 jobs for the period of construction. It should
be operating in full swing by 2015. Fracchia estimates $500 million on
contracts has been spent during construction at the new mine, 70 per
cent of which have been awarded locally.

"We tried pretty hard from the start of the project to ensure high
level of local contracts," he says.

The existing mine paid the provincial government nearly $30 million in
royalties for 2008-2009 fiscal year, according to figures from the
Department of Finance, and the government expects to collect about
$330 million in royalties from the new mine by the end of its

In Sussex, PotashCorp will be the namesake of the long-awaited
wellness centre, after the company gave $1 million toward the
construction. The company has also been lauded for a $100, 000
donation to the Atlantic youth rehabilitation facility, Portage. It
also contributed $1.2 million to the construction of the Penobsquis
water system.

Because of its contributions to the region, the mine sees itself as a
good corporate neighbour.

"We do a survey within the community to gauge perception and the last
survey done about a year and a half ago was very favourable. I think
we have a lot of support in the community,"Fracchia says.

He is aware of the group of people in Penobsquis that believe the mine
is causing property damage, but he says the fears people like Nixon
express —that their homes are sinking, that their property values are
dropping— are misplaced and unfounded.

"We've met with the Concerned Citizens, and I think we've made a
pretty good effort to educate them about how that works, and what the
real impacts are, instead of the ones people fear, the one you see on
the Internet, the worst case scenarios.

"Potash mining has low level, broad, general subsidence," he said. "We
have yet to see any damage caused by that."

PotashCorp is a big player in Penobsquis, but potash isn't the only
game in town.

In 2000, Corridor Resources discovered the McCully gas field, which is
now the home of 29 natural gas wells, producing a little more than 20
million cubic feet of gas per day.

The first two wells were found on a joint drilling operation between
Corridor and the mine.

Corridor's presence in the community has grown significantly since
then. A community liaison committee meets every two months to discuss
concerns people have with the operations. The company also sends out a
newsletter to inform residents of any company news.

"It's been a very useful framework," says Norm Miller, president and
CEO of Corridor Resources. "When there's a new activity that we need
to explain to the community, so when we're building a pipeline or
we're doing a new seismic program, and conducting drilling in a new
area, we'll have an open house to explain."

Corridor pumps its gas into a 50 kilometre pipeline, which hooks into
the Maritimes & North eastern pipeline, and distributes the gas to
markets in the US and Canada.

Miller says natural gas hasn't penetrated the markets in Canada as
deeply as it has in the US, but he believes it will catch on.

"It has less of an environmental footprint than coal or oil, less
greenhouses gases," he says.

Corridor recently learned that one of its deposits holds about 60
trillion cubic feet of natural gas that sits in shale rock east of
Penobsquis, near Elgin. Approximately 1 billion cubic feet can heat
around 5, 000 homes per year. The find is so big, Corridor in December
farmed out some its operations to Apache Canada, an Alberta-based oil
and gas company with "a front line expertise in fracturing and
producing natural gas from shales."

Though they haven't been able to establish how much of the gas, which
is trapped in rock 2,000 to 4,000 meters below the surface, is
salvageable, Miller expects that if they're successful, there'll be
way more natural gas than New Brunswick ever needs.

Premier Shawn Graham believes the development of gas deposits in the
province will lead to a big payout for New Brunswickers in the long

"We've got new potential with some gas finds that are exiting for the
province," says Graham, whose father Alan sits on the board of
directors of Petroworth, an oil and gas company with exploration
operations in New Brunswick. "It will produce new revenue streams that
we'll be able to take and invest in our education and health care
programs, and I think this region of the province is ripe for those
types of opportunities."

The perfect storm
For all the trouble the development in Penobsquis has brought local
residents, some people there are enjoying better lives because of it.

The Timberland Motel, which was dealt a huge blow when it was bypassed
by the four-lane highway from Moncton to Sussex, has a new lease on
life. The parking lot is full most days during the week, filled with
workers from the gas rigs and the mine.

Some families are lucky to have a job at the old mine, and some have
found temporary work on the new mine shaft.

The luckiest residents lease their property to Corridor to house
natural gas infrastructure like a pipeline or a well pad.

With the wealth of natural resources in the ground beneath the
village, what's happening in Penobsquis—home of the province's only
potash and natural gas production operations—is like a sweepstakes or
a lottery.

"Everyone is hoping to have a strike on their land so they have
guaranteed source of revenue coming in," says Graham.

Take the Wallace family, for example. They own a dairy farm on the
Back Road, one kilometre north of the mine. The farm has been in the
family for more than 100 years, and has been milking cows with
Holstein Canada for 98 continuous years. With the exception of a few
hired hands, John and his son Andrew do the all the day-to-day work.
There's no denying farming is backbreaking work, but Andrew says life
in pastures is a little bit easier since his family began leasing its
land to Corridor.

"Having extra money means for flexibility," he says. "I wouldn't say
things (at work) are a whole lot better, but there are definitely less
headaches with the newer equipment and a barn."

They built a new machine shed, bought a John Deere cab tractor, a new
round baler and hay wagons. Those investments have helped the farm
boost its productivity.

"It makes the work a lot easier on hot days," says Wallace, who has
lived on the farm since 1984, the year he was born. "None of this
would have been possible without the gas."

Corridor has gas piping underneath their fields, and a well-pad set up
across the road, on a parcel of land the Wallaces don't use.

"The release of gases that are burned as they exit the flare stacks
are very noisy at times, a constant rumble, and also very bright,"
Andrew says. "Enough to light up inside my home at night."

But the pros of leasing their land outweigh the cons, he says. Wallace
represents a divide in the community, the portion of the population
that didn't lose its water, and doesn't have stories about cracking
foundations and sinking homes.

He is aware there's a group of people who're disgruntled over the
development, but personally, he enjoys it.

"It was exciting at first," says Andrew, who remembers Penobsquis as a
rather boring place to grow up. "Penobsquis used to be a quiet
village without a whole lot going on. Seeing heavy equipment all the
time for the first few years took a little getting used to. I think
they're doing okay. Personally, I have no complaints."

Wallace's optimism isn't shared by the residents who live a few
kilometres away near the Penobsquis Loop Road, the area where most
houses lost their water, where most of the Concerned Citizens reside.
They don't fault anyone in the community for benefiting from the
industry, but they don't see the fruits of the development.

"Penobsquis has become heavily industrialized and the way it has been
done shows that the government can have certain disregard for its own
citizens," says Michel Desneiges, an environmental lawyer who
represents the concerned citizens.

He believes the government deliberately went ahead with its plan for
Penobsquis without consulting local residents. He says the residents
of Penobsquis have been saddled with a huge risk and are entitled to
no reward.

"The issues of subsidence will most likely get worse, the issue of
property values; who wants to lose the value of their property because
of mining development? People invest a lot of money, their life
savings, they buy or build their dream home, and 15 years later
they're left with this. It's a tragedy to a certain degree. That
message has to be relayed to the public."

Graham says his government has a responsibility to maximize the
resources within the province for the benefit of all citizens, but
acknowledges the development in Penobsquis has encroached on people's

"That's the challenge," says Graham. "We have such a small province,
and we're heavily populated in our rural portions of the province.

"Land owners want to see this economic development on their land as
well, so we have the responsibility to have that balanced approach."

Desneiges believes balance would entail compensation for those in the
community who've experienced property damage as a result of mining

"There is a cost for operating that the mining companies aren't
paying," he says. "No one is saying 'no' to mining, but 'do your job
better,' and if there is compensation for people to be given, who lose
their property values, then buy those people out."

Regardless, the Concerned Citizens will continue to meet on Wednesday
nights at Chris Bell's house and figure out what to do next.

Nixon says they're planning legal action, but wouldn't say much more
than that. Even though some people want them to shut up and go away,
the Concerned Citizens say they're here to stay. It's the kind of
resistance you'd expect from rural New Brunswickers.

Penobsquis is their home, and they're determined to have their say
about what becomes of it, even if no one asks them.

NOTE FROM EDITOR; I have put two articles together here, both from the
Council of Canadians. They are both on the issue of "fracking". The
second article is from the Council of Canadians Making Waves Water
Newsletter. "Fracking" impacts underground water reserves as you will

The Toronto Star reports that Calgary-based Mooncor Oil & Gas Corp.
has been buying land rights in southwestern Ontario for shale gas

Mooncor intends to drill in the Kettle Point Formation known as Antrim
Shale in Lambton and Kent counties, and the Collingwood/Blue Mountain
formations known as Utica Shale.

"It has already locked up nearly 23,000 acres (9.30776 hecatres) of
land in Lambton and Kent counties..."

"Shale gas is called an unconventional natural gas because extracting
it isn't as easy as drilling a deep hole into a reservoir and simply
pumping its contents to the surface. Instead, the gas is trapped in
cracks, pores and organic material within a sedimentary rock called
shale, which is made mostly of clay minerals. The resource may be
widely dispersed, but getting at it is tricky. It must often be coaxed
out using a horizontal drilling technique that hydraulically fractures
('fracking') the rock and causes the gas to flow toward a vertical
collection well."

As described by Environmental Leader news, "the hydraulic fracturing
process involves taking water from the ground, pumping fracturing
fluids and sands into the wells under pressure, then separating and
managing the leftover water after withdrawing the gas."

The Toronto Star report continues, "As the rest of the industry rushes
to develop shale-gas projects in the prolific Marcellus shale deposits
of the U.S. northeast (from New York State and Pennsylvania to West
Virginia) and the Utica shales of Quebec, Mooncor is gaining a solid
foothold in Ontario."

The article notes that the gas can presently cause an "egg smell' in
well water, but also that "the rush to develop the Marcellus Shale has
led to widespread concern about the hydraulic fracturing process and
how the use of toxic chemicals in that process could affect the local
watershed and make residents who rely on well water sick."

"New York State has banned high-volume drilling of horizontal wells
until it can thoroughly study the concerns. The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency has also weighed in and could soon have more
industry oversight as a result of a congressional investigation of the

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that this past Thursday the
EPA "launched a study to determine whether (hydraulic fracturing) is
contaminating water supplies."

The WSJ notes, "Last month, Steve Heare, director of EPA's Drinking
Water Protection Division, said at a conference he hadn't seen any
documented cases that the fracking process was contaminating water
supplies. Bill Kappel, a US Geological Survey official, said at the
same conference that contamination of water supplies is more likely to
happen as companies process the waste water from hydrofracking. In
some instances, municipal water systems that treat the water have
reported higher levels of heavy metals and radioactivity."

The Toronto Star article notes that, "A green light from regulators,
however, could unleash a wave of shale-gas development in Ontario." In
fact, Natural Resources Canada and Ontario's Ministry of Natural
Resources promote shale gas drilling in Ontario.

Mooncor is also "preparing to spin off a separate company called DRGN
Resources that will focus its efforts on both conventional and
unconventional gas drilling."

opportunity for the province - is at

Potash Mine drying wells in Penobsquis

Communities across the country are dealing with water contamination
and shortages that are a result of unsustainable industrial
development. For the past several years, 60 residents of Penobsquis
New Brunswick have had their wells dry up. They attribute this to the
activities of a potash mine owned by the New Brunswick subsidiary of
the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, but the government has failed
to investigate the situation. In the meantime, drinking water to the
affected homes is supplied by the potash mine, while the government of
New Brunswick provides water for other uses. The Council of Canadians
received the below entry from a resident who has been active in the
struggle to protect local water resources.

Potash Mine drying wells in Penobsquis by Beth Nixon

In 2004, life in my small rural community started changing in a way
that is difficult to describe. More than 60 homes lost their well
water that year. Until you have lived without water, and have no way
you can think of to get a regular supply, you can't imagine what it is

When the first wells were lost, most in the community just thought it
was an anomaly. But as the numbers increased , people began to suspect
that it might have something to do with the Potash Mine in the area.
Many homes drilled 2nd, or even 3rd wells at their own expense. Others
had their wells deepened. Washing machines and taps were broken due to
the sediment from riley water. Homes that lost their wells were
directly over the mining shafts and stopes that are between 350 & 450m
beneath the surface.

At this time a local Potash Mine was doing seismic testing to explore
for new potash reserves, which involves putting a charge in the ground
— the resulting blast is measured with electronic equipment like
stereo speakers called geophones. This information can tell an
exploration company where rocks of different densities are to assist
them in finding new resources.

Over the next five years more water wells went dry, but uneven water
flows created a situation where excess water nearly flooded the area
around the mine.

More seismic testing was done, and nearby natural gas wells were
developed with the use of a new technology called 'hydraulic
fracturing' (aka fracking) to crack rock deep beneath the surface of
the ground. The water flow into the mine increased as high as 2,300
gallons per minute. In an effort to keep the mine open 250 - 300
transport trucks to haul the water out. The potash mine has built a
pipeline to transport some of the water to the Bay of Fundy. They
built a grouting station next to homes that initially lost their wells
to pump concrete underground to plug the holes. They brought in a
drilling rig to pump aggregate, cement and other materials into the
ground and aquifer to try and stop the flooding from the outside of
the mine.

In the end, more than 60 homes could no longer depend on their water
supply. The New Brunswick government paid for water to be trucked to
the community and the mine provided drinking water. The province
promised the community it would commission a study to verify the
relationship between the flooding of the mine and the drying of the
wells. Unfortunately, the province asked the Potash mine to conduct
the study. The mine hired a consultant to write a report stating there
was no conclusive evidence that the flooding of the mine was related
to the drying up of residential wells . Members of my community have
only seen the executive summary of this reportt. The province says we
cannot see the whole report as it is considered proprietary

Today, the mine is pumping over 11million litres of water a day from
the mining shafts and stopes underneath our homes. So much water is
being taking from underneath our homes, we are experiencing subsidence
— the ground is settling underneath our homes.

If this was happening to you - in your community, what would you do?

BTW this is an interesting blog too bad the owners don't have a name eh?

Honor The Earth "Press Release" Lakota Ride
Environment, News October 14, 2013 Comments: 4
Columbus Day 2013…

Lakota and Ojibwe horse riders are on their second day of a 150 mile
horse ride from the Pine Ridge reservation to the Cheyenne River reservation
in South Dakota, near the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route. Riders, led
by Percy White Plume, (a descendant of the survivors during the 1890 Wounded
Knee massacre), are riding to oppose the "man labor camps" which will
accompany the proposed pipeline, and "to protect our water… we can drink
bottled water, but our relatives in the horse nation, the buffalo nation and
the animals cannot drink bottled water, our water is sacred…," he said.

The proposed KXL pipeline crosses Lakota territory, and there are no
pipelines in this region, home of the Ogallala Aquifer, the primary source
of water for most of the region. The ride began the same day as the 800,000
gallon plus pipeline spill from a Tesoro six inch line near Tioga, ND was
revealed to press, and amidst a federal shutdown, in which it is not clear
that PHMSA (pipeline safety inspectors) are available. The ride also
follows a freak, climate change attributed, two foot blizzard which killed
over l00,000 cattle in the largely rural , ranching state. Amidst the
changing weather, and riding through fields still littered with the
carcasses of dead cattle , overturned trees and flooded creeks, twenty-five
riders and supporters continue north.

The ride has been organized by the Horse Spirit Society of Wounded Knee,
sponsored by Honor the Earth, and supported by the Swift Family Foundation,

"Gitjimitj Harper," Idle No More: Round Two
Economy, News, Opinion July 4, 2013 Leave a comment
The following story was originally published here and is being republished
under a new title.

Written by Winona LaDuke and Frank Jr Molley

Mi'kmaq and Maliseet reserves in Atlantic Canada are the sites of a new
major battle between First Nation activists and the Canadian government that
may represent the next stage of the Idle No More movement. The flash point
came when the Conservative government threw down the gauntlet with what some
call sign-or-starve consent agreements presented to First Nations right
across the country.

Facing increasingly strong opposition to both its extractive industries and
its federal policies, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government has adopted
a hard-line strategy seemingly designed to eliminate First Nations'
negotiating power and rights. Harper's cudgels are annual contribution
agreements between the government and the First Nations that have new,
questionable appendices, that are forcing some of the poorest communities to
take it or leave it, or worse, face third-party management, which would
essentially mean having the Canadian government manage their finances and
governmental affairs. At stake here is title over Indian lands and
minerals, as well as a host of choices on the future direction of Canada.

The government seems to be focused on getting de facto termination of many
constitutionally and treaty protected rights of First Nations. Its first
thrust in this battle was this past fall's Bill C-45, which gutted most of
Canada's environmental laws and was the spur for last year's Idle No More
movement. "It took away a lot of the treaty muscle First Nations have," says
Nina Wilson, one of Idle No More's founders, of that bill.

Since the eruption of the Idle No More movement in early December, there
have been many amendments to Canadian laws that threaten aboriginal peoples
rights and their traditional lands, all of them enacted as part of what the
government calls "Canada's Economic Action Plan." Although dubbed a
long-term plan to strengthen the Canadian economy, the majority of the
"actions" in this plan will curtail aboriginal peoples rights over their
lands and resources. The government appeared to be undermining the
traditional "derogation" provision, a clause that Chelsea Vowel, a Métis
scholar and blogger for, explains "is central to every
agreement between First Nations and the Canadian government."

A non-derogation clause in aboriginal law generally reads like this: Nothing
in this agreement shall be construed so as to abrogate or derogate from the
protection provided for existing aboriginal or treaty rights of the
aboriginal peoples of Canada by the recognition and affirmation of those
rights in section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982.

In "Are you alarmed? You should be," an article posted on, Vowel explains that these new my-way-or-the-highway
agreements include language that is, "typical legal doublespeak. Your rights
are protected… unless we need to violate them to carry out this legislation
that we did not create with adequate consultation with you and further, we
will not consult with you as we carry out these legislative duties."

The new consent agreements bearing these bits of subterfuge are the staple
of financial support for First Nations, funding essential health care,
education and housing. "Some new agreements with the bands are designed to
force a land surrender," says Wilson. "In other cases, basic rights, like
the right to potable water—which is not available in a number of First
Nations—are being linked to a diminishment of rights."

All this comes at a time when many First Nations are in dire financial
straits. "We have been receiving very minimal support for services in our
communities," Wilson explains. "[Federal appropriations are] based on prices
that date back to the last millennium. For instance, one community gets
$4,000 a year for snow removal, and in fact is spending $36,000 a year. That
money has to come from somewhere. [This annual shortfall] has snowballed
into a debt, and bands have no way of taking care of it. Bands now are being
faced with new financial negotiations, and many bands are in the red because
of the low-ball appropriations."

The Omnibus Budget Bill enacted in January 2013 has been criticized by
opposition MPs as an attempt to subvert the democratic process. The bill was
rushed through Parliament, along with many supplementary bills, eight of
which directly affect aboriginal peoples and their lands. Of concern to
First Nations are changes to legislation on water rights, matrimonial law,
the Indian Act, education, health, privatization of Indian lands, taxation
on reserves and on the matter of financial transparency and accountability.

Cree Lawyer Sharon Venne is an international human rights attorney and
watchdog on federal aboriginal policy. Her experience in dealing with the
feds is extensive, most notably as chief negotiator for First Nations for
ten years in Canada's Northwest Territories. In October 2012, she held a
special presentation in Kahnawake, Mohawk territory in which she suggests
that the Federal plan is to absolve federal fiduciary obligations, which are
essential elements of both treaties and federal Indian policy, based on a
notorious set of policy recommendations dating back to the 1960s called the
white paper. "What they are doing [now] is 'frustrating' the application of
S.91(24) in the British North American Act, 'Indians and Lands Reserved for
Indians,' by transferring this stuff to the Provinces and they are doing it
through all kinds of mechanisms. It's not only through legislation, but it's
through the [annual] contribution agreements."

The desired shift would diminish the nation-to-nation relationships between
Canada and all the First Nations—in particular their legal jurisdiction and
responsibilities—by putting them under the control of local Provincial

Bold moves by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada

Esgenoopetitj (Burnt Church) is a Mi'gmaq First Nation community that has an
unenviable claim to fame: it is reported to be the poorest postal code in
all of Canada. In mid-March 2013, it was sent their annual contribution
agreement. This time the agreement was different—it didn't contain the
standard non-derogation clause, which would erodes treaty rights protection
in return for funding. Treaty and aboriginal rights are no longer explicitly
acknowledged, which means they are, implicitly, imperiled. Councilor Mr.
Curtis Bartibogue is outraged by this change in tactics by the government.
"It's blackmail, and it's the most illegal thing ever done.… We told the
[Aboriginal Affairs] Minister it's like you're putting a gun to our head and
telling us to sign."

What happened next surprised many, perhaps the Canadian government most of
all. Despite the dire conditions of the community—80 per cent unemployment,
and essentially full dependency on the promised multi-million-dollar funding
allocation—Burnt Church refused to sign. "The outcome of our meeting was
that we can't sign," Bartibogue says. "We asked the public and informed them
of the situation and they stand behind us not to sign. To accept the social
reform, the omitting clauses of the treaties and the case before the courts,
is something we can't do to our community."

"The government, through its contribution agreements, is trying to get First
Nations to sign onto [their policies] or else be cut from their funding,"
Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation in Alberta told a reporter. He said his nation refused to sign its contribution
agreement, worth more than one-million-dollars, because it doesn't agree
with the federal government's omnibus budget implementation legislation. In
Saskatchewan, Cree First Nations similarly decided to say 'No.' "One of the
council members took the whole appendix home and read it all. There were a
lot of conditions never seen before. Some signed and some didn't," Christine
Dieter, a First Nations woman in southern Saskatchewan, told a reporter for, an electronic newsmagazine. The appendix allegedly requires
the bands to support federal omnibus legislation and proposed resource
developments as a condition of receiving their funding. Some bands have
already signed their contribution agreements out of necessity, noting that
they have done so under duress.

The harsh reality behind this power play is that 146 years of Canadian
development has left First Nation economies underfunded. Canadian mining and
forestry have essentially stripped their resources for a paltry sum. Today,
many of Canada's 633 First Nations live in third-world conditions.
Negotiations are too often uneven. As prominent Native scholar Russell Diabo
wrote, "It seems the negotiating First Nations are so compromised by their
federal loans, and dependent on the negotiations funding stream that they
are unable or unwilling to withdraw from the tables en masse and make real
on the demand that the Harper government reform its comprehensive claims and
self-government policies to be consistent with the articles of the [United
Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples]."

The Manufacturing of Aboriginal Consent

What is at stake for Canada is an estimated $650-billion-dollar extraction
industry worth of minerals, oil, gas and trade-route access for pipeline
companies. Canada's domination of a world minerals market is at risk because
First Nations are saying 'No' and are making demands. For the first time in
six years, Canada failed to top the mining industry's list of the best
mining jurisdictions in the world. Indigenous rights are a challenge to that
economy. "I would say one of the big things that is weighing on mining
investment in Canada right now is First Nations issues," Ewan Downie, told
Reuters. Downie is chief executive officer of Premier Gold Mines, which owns
numerous projects in northern Ontario. Half a million Canadians and their
livelihoods are tied in the 120-billion-a-year industry within the fields of
natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil, oil sands bitumen and other
mineral extractions, according to a 2013 Statistical Handbook issued by
Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. (Many argue that all of those
resources originate on First Nation territories.)

Free, prior and informed consent is a part of the United Nations Declaration
on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and most international protocols. This
becomes an international legal standard of how business is done, after
hundreds of years of theft and genocide, in order to secure lands from
Indigenous peoples. Hence, international accords today enable fair
agreements with Indigenous peoples over their lands and resources. Now, with
an increasingly educated, and empowered Indigenous community, evidenced by
the Idle No More movement, that standard of consent is not looking so easy
to secure. This is particularly true as communities themselves challenge,
what has become, essentially entrenched power.

As Professor Pamela Palmater of Toronto's Ryerson University explains, "[The
Idle No More] movement was about educating First Nations to say no.… " And
saying "no" has already slowed or derailed at least a half-dozen energy and
mining projects in British Columbia. "It's the project-killer, the
investment killer," says Clayton Thomas-Muller, a Cree organizer with the
Indigenous Tar Sands campaign.

This March, Mathias Colomb Cree Nation blocked access for HudBay Minerals
Inc. to its Lalor Lake mine project in Manitoba. Protesters blockaded access
to the gold-copper-zinc mine for several hours, demanding talks with the
company on an ownership stake in the $773.84 million project. Blockades have
increased dramatically over this winter, spurred on by the federal
government's failure to consult, along with their green light nods toward
new aggressive mining interests, many of which are in more remote and
pristine areas than ever before. The companies are also facing a more
politicized and mobilized grassroots movement that is determined to defend
the constitutionally protected rights of First Nations.

Last September former cabinet minister Jim Prentice slammed both the
government and the oil industry for not addressing First Nation concerns.
Yet Canada's Bill C-45 paved the way across aboriginal territory without
much adherence to consultation or accommodation let alone the environment,
opening new resource extraction opportunities with Suncor Energy, Enbridge,
TransCanada and a sleuth of junior mining and natural gas companies
effectively giving their activities the green light.

Last year, Trans Canada Corp. reportedly floated the idea of a pipeline to
the East. New Brunswick's Premier, David Alward, "has been traveling the
country peddling the virtues of a West-East oil pipeline that would see
Alberta and Saskatchewan crude flow to a refinery in Saint John, New
Brunswick," reported the Financial Post. The pipeline might go through
territory of the Maliseet and Mi'kmaq peoples, and one source says that the
Assembly of First Nations Chiefs of New Brunswick were not consulted about
the plans. This is disturbing in many respects, including the fact that
Alward is, thanks to a consolidation of power in the Maritime provinces,
also responsible for aboriginal affairs in the province.

Can the Harper government be thwarted in this attempt to subjugate and
exploit the First Nations? U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Rights of
Indigenous Peoples James Anaya, who is completing a report for the United
Nations on extractive industries and Indigenous Peoples, has been requesting
to formally enter Canada since early 2012. He was finally given formal
approval in April and expected to vist during Fall 2013.

In the meantime, the Idle No More movement that began late last year has
bloomed this Spring with new force, an Indigenous Spring, so to speak, that
is spreading from eastern Canada's Burnt Church to northern Saskatchewan.

Harper Government Pressures Poorest Community To Sign Agreement Despite
Court Injunction
Economy, News, Politics March 15, 2013 Comments: 46
By Frank Jr Molley

Burnt Church First Nation, New Brunswick, Canada

It was just another day at the band office on Tuesday when Burnt Church
First Nation councillor Mr. Curtis Bartibogue first noticed the files on his

"It's that time of the year when Aboriginal Affairs Funding Agreements come
in, I looked at them briefly and set them aside for thursday's meeting," he
said during a telephone interview.

Councillor Curtis Bartibogue, Burnt Church First Nation.

It was that same day that he noticed a similar agreement being discussed
online which caused him some concern, so he went back to take a closer look
at the agreement. Aboriginal Funding agreements are issued across Canada
prior to each fiscal year, a process that has the usual outlines on funding
dollars. Particulars involving Burnt Church First Nation include; Education
(Elementary, Secondary, Post Secondary), Economic Development, Indian
Government Support, Land and Trust Services, Community Infrastructure,
Housing, Social Support Services, Social Assistance, and Headstart & Day

"Certain terminology contained in the prior funding agreements years before
were no longer there," he said as he compared last year's agreement to this
years. "For example, Section 16 would normally have a non-derogation
clause, but that was omitted. These normally state that signing this
agreement does not derogate from any aboriginal or treaty right, this was
replaced and I thought that was strange," he stated. "What I also found was
that it said by signing onto this funding agreement our band would agree to
the federal guidelines on social programs, which meant we would have to
abide by the provincial social rates," Bartibogue said.

Last year Ottawa planned to impose changes to welfare programs on First
Nation communities that would harmonize rates throughout Atlantic Canada
with Provincial rates. But fell short of implementation due to a Federal
Court Judge's decision that effectively placed an injunction until heard in
court. A decision many First Nation leaders of the Maritimes were pleased
with. Despite the existing injunction Chief and Council of Burnt Church
were concerned how this current agreement would affect the case currently
before the courts. Calls were made to the Regional Office requesting a
meeting with the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs to discuss the matter.

"We met with the Minister and his staff last night [Wednesday] in
Miramichi," he said. The Minister was in the province conducting Federal
announcements in both Eel Ground and Buctouche First Nation respectively.
"We asked Minister Valcourt why he didn't recognize the injunction and he
assured us the reason why they are putting the clause into the agreement is
just in case the court votes in favour of the government," Bartibogue said
during the interview conducted with Wabanaki Press on Thursday evening.

"We were told that there was nothing wrong with what they were doing, it was
just in case they win that they would be able to enforce those changes,"
Bartibogue said. Bartibogue believes that if Burnt Church First Nation
signs the funding agreement, prior to the courts decision on social
assistance reform in the Atlantic that is expected in June 2013, it may have
major implications. "So we asked if we did not sign the agreement would we
still be able to get the essential funding outside of social assistance.
The Regional Director, Ian Gray, told us we would not get it because any new
agreement must go through a process with the Treasury Board's approval. He
also said that without signing they cannot release any funding to the
community for April 1, 2013," Bartibogue said.

Burnt Church First Nation, also known as Esgenoopetitj, is a Mi'gmaq
community comprised of approximately 1,800 band members, with an 80 per
cent unemployment rate. In February of 2010, CBC news reported that seven
of the ten poorest postal codes in Canada were First Nation communities and
all of them were within the province of New Brunswick. Burnt Church First
Nation was reported to be the poorest postal code in the country, poorer
than Vancouver's Downtown East Side, according to median income data by
Statistics Canada.

"It's blackmail and it's the most illegal thing ever done," says Bartibogue.
"We told the Minister it's like you're putting a gun to our head and telling
us to sign. He just said if we sign there will be no funding problems,"
said Bartibogue. The meeting took place at Rodds Inn in Miramichi, NB on
Wednesday. Present at the meeting was the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs,
Bernard Valcourt and his staff, including AANDC Regional Director General
Ian Gray, Miramichi MP Tilly O'Neill Gordon, along with Chief Alvery Paul
and eight of twelve Council members from Burnt Church First Nation.

Chief and Council of the Mi'gmaq community were told they have until noon
Friday, March 15, 2013 local time to sign the agreement. Coupled with
pressing economic issues and an annual dependency of Federal Funding
averaging $16 million dollars, the Chief and Council have decided not to
sign the agreement.

"The outcome of our meeting today [Thursday] was that we can't sign. We
asked the public and informed them of the situation and they stand behind us
not to sign. To accept the social reform, the omitting clauses of the
treaties and the case before the courts, is something we can't do to our
community," says Councillor Curtis Bartibogue.

For the poorest postal code in Canada one would have to believe this to be
an area of great concern given the Country's approach to economic stability
and strong Canadian values involving First Nation, Inuit and Metis
communities across the land. However, despite the sudden turn of events for
the Mi'gmaq of Burnt Church First Nation, Canada's Aboriginal Affairs office
announced yesterday the designing and construction of a new school in Eel
Ground First Nation. A similar announcement was later made regarding
funding for a new water treatment facility at Buctouche First Nation, both
communities are located in New Brunswick and both are also Mi'gmaq nations.
Two out of three announcements that prove positive results for the future of
these ancient peoples is cause for applause indeed. The question remains,
how many other Mi'gmaq and Maliseet communities were subjected to signing
these kinds of funding arrangements? Wabanaki Press will continue to follow
this story as it develops.


"The Harper Government remains focused on four priorities, as outlined by
the Prime Minister, that Canadians care most about: their families, the
safety of our streets and communities, their pride in being a citizen of
this country, and their personal financial security." Aboriginal Affairs
and Northern Development Canada website, March 14, 2013, News Release and
Statements. Ref. #2-3768

LaDuke to give lecture in Wolastoqiyik territory.
News February 7, 2013 Leave a comment
Wolastoqiyik territory, New Brunswick.

Winona LaDuke at White Earth Reservation.

Winona LaDuke hails from White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota, she's
Bear Clan. The Harvard graduate admits she's really a Rural Development
Economist but one that applies indigenous multi-generational thinking. She's
held two lectures already, the first at UNB's Marshall D'Avery. The second
at St. Mary's First Nation.

During her lecture at UNB LaDuke said that indigenous values are not valued,
even in a Harvard economics classroom. Indigenous people are cyclical
thinkers who share teachings of sustainability, she added "and [that] the
world is animate. Canada doesn't think like that."

But the idea of progress reveals dullness. As she put it, we could cap
emissions, irrigate water, change regulations and such however it's an
economy based on mining and waste. She arrived in Wolastoqiyik territory to
give a number of lectures, her next public lecture scheduled this Thursday
at St. Thomas University.

Her lecture entitled, "Idle No More, Harper's Big Oil Economy, and All our
Relations," will take place in McCain Hall Auditorium. For more info click

One thing is certain…
News January 10, 2013 Comments: 3
One thing is certain, tomorrow's meeting with the Prime Minister of Canada,
the Governor General and Aboriginal leaders will take place; or it won't.

Streaming through the media coverage, Twitter feeds and Facebook status's
surrounding a special strategy meeting with aboriginal leaders is

The majority of media concerns being expressed on behalf, or in light of,
Idle No More take shape for and against the concept of liberation being
proposed. However, the mainstream media tonight has been absent with any
grass roots voice, especially from the women of Canada's aboriginal nations.

In light of this absence here is one such voice coming out tonight from The
Delta in Ottawa. A voice of an aboriginal woman with a message so important
that it may galvanize and set the tone for all to follow as negotiations run
late into the night.

For those of you around the world, share this within your online social
circles. For it, just by itself, speaks of the power in all aboriginal
women worldwide.

Perhaps it will change the way Canadians perceive the Idle No More movement.
It has realigned this editor back to where the focus of all of this remains,

INM grassroots voice overshadowed by industry concerns.
Economy, Politics January 8, 2013 Comments: 4

Listuguj Idle No More (INM) supporters now remain adamant on blocking all
railway traffic pending the outcome of the January 11 meeting between
Aboriginal leaders and the Harper government. The decision was made hours
after their Monday afternoon meeting with Listuguj Chief and Council and
visiting key regional representatives.

Both governmental and municipal stakeholders along the Gaspé region
travelled to Listuguj in hopes to appeal freight train passage, citing
concerns over their municipal economies.

"The fact is the railway belongs to the municipalities of the Gaspé. There
is a serious impact with the lack of federal funding. They have a serious
issue with being able to get the federal government to pull it's weight when
it comes to supporting the railway and other files as well. In particular
they want to underline that there's a lot of jobs that are on the line that
this railway supports and he has a particular preoccupation with making sure
that those jobs and that industry on the railway can continue." Said NDP
Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Iles-de-la-Madeleine, Mr. Phillip Toone,
translating on behalf of Mr. Bertrand Berger, Président of Conférence
Régionale des Élu(e)s Gaspésie–Iles-de-la-Madeleine.

Mr. Francois Roussy, President of Société de chemin de fer de la Gaspésie
(The Gaspé Railway Company) represented the four Regional County
Municipalities: Avignon, Bonaventure, Le Rocher-Percé, and La
Cote-de-Gaspé. The SCFG president went as far as suggesting VIA Rail
passenger trains should be blocked instead of the regions freight trains.
The premise expressed was that of no effect on putting pressure on the
federal government in terms of blocking the Gaspé regions freight trains.
Freight trains that are owned and operated by the SCFG's 325 km railway that
runs between Matapedia to Gaspé have a lot more to lose regionally in terms
of revenue for the four regional county municipalities. These
municipalities benefit from the use of the Gaspé Railway Company.

In the position expressed by the SCFG's President on their business relation
with Temrex, a leading producer of softwood in the Gaspé, further denial of
passage hurts Temrex.

"Temrex is a business that is going to be affected by the protests that are
being held right now. And our intentions is to find a solution that will
help unblock that but at the same time allow continued protest and in no way
stop the justified protest." Said MP Mr. Phillip Toone, translating on
behalf of Mr. Francois Roussy.

The Quebec government representative, Mr. Gaétan Leliévre, Parti Québécois
(PQ), Minister responsible for the Gaspésie–Iles-de-la-Madeleine, as an act
of good faith asked if there is any other way to help present their ideas in
another fashion. One that perhaps benefits everybody that unifies a way of

Incumbent Chief Dean Vicaire stated that the struggle to provide meaningful
employment for the people of Listuguj is not only difficult but is also
reliant on government to government relationships that can help provide that
employment. He directed his message to Mr. Gaétan Leliévre,

"Two things we've been really pushing and working on is first our Wind Farm,
it's a hundred and fifty mega-watt wind farm that the Mi'mgaq of the
Gaspésie, Gespeg, Gesgapegiag and Listuguj, are ready. We are more than
ready and you know that. It's just a matter of the Minister putting pen to
paper and we can participate on that." Chief Vicaire said.

The main industry concerns being affected along the 325 km shortline railway
was a topic that consumed the majority of the meeting on Monday. At best,
the INM grassroots voice at the table appeared to be overshadowed by
concerns of Regional representatives and that of the Listuguj Mi'gmaq
Government. No amount of resolution would be achieved in the amount of time
allocated for that day's meeting, but the message was clear. The Harper
government continues to hurt the people of this region and Bill C-45, if
anything, forces the local people here to look to each other as ally's. How
this would be achieved depends solely on the amount of leverage each one can
bring to the discussion table.

Alex Morrison, spokesperson for the INM supporters of Listuguj, directed his
attention to Mr. Francois Roussy, President of Société de chemin de fer de
la Gaspésie (The Gaspé Railway Company).

"You want us to help Temrex but what does Temrex do for our community?
Those are our trees that you are cutting in our territory. We made treaties
a long time ago that you guys signed with your ancestors and our ancestors.
The Temrex you are talking about is being fed by our resources on our
territory." Said Morrison.

Temrex plays a major role in the transfer of wood chips and lumber shipped
from the four regional county municipalities and the INM supporters blockade
of the railway in Listuguj is having a real impact, not on Temrex, but on
the regional municipalities that own the railway along the Gaspésie. If the
option to ship is restricted by train, Temrex can simply ship by transport
trailers to their destination plants in Riviere-du-Loup and Gatineau, but at
an additional cost.

"Only Temrex is using the train, at this time. In the summer it is
different," says Temrex general manager, Harold Berube during an interview
following Monday's meeting.

"Using the train to ship our chips is the most [affordable] than by truck,"
he stated.

When asked whether Temrex arrived here in Listuguj for the meeting to help
in the settlement of the issue with the Idle No More railway blockade, the
answer was both "Yes," and, "No."

"At this time we've had a real difficult period for Temrex too, we've lost a
lot of money. We've lost $12 million dollars in the last year and a half."
Said Mr. Berube.

Temrex sells their wood directly to White Birch paper plant. A company that
was the second-largest newsprint manufacturer in North America before filing
for bankruptcy protection in February 2010.

24 Hour Blockade Ends, More Peaceful Protests Planned
News January 3, 2013 Leave a comment
7th District Mi'gmaq Territory

Supporters stand united and brave the cold temperatures in support of Idle
No More and Chief Theresa Spence. (Gesgapegiag First Nation, Qc)

After a cold evening of manning the blockade over highway 132 near Maria,
Qc., supporters and their families of Gesgapegiag First Nation gathered for
a meeting at the Galgoasiet Centre on Wednesday. Over one hundred people
gathered within, away from the cold biting winds. As members sat to discuss
the blockade and express their concerns, a small contingent remained outside
ensuring the highway was blocked.

The Idle No More (INM) movement swept across the Canadian landscape during
the Christmas holidays like a sudden winter storm. It's influence stretched
across the globe with the help of online social media. In its wake stood
Canada's aboriginal grassroots response to Ottawa's Jobs and Growth Act,
also known as Bill C-45. Gesgapegiag is known for being a grassroots
community and their recent actions have come to illustrate this.

Wednesday's meeting would be one of several already held in Gesgapegiag
concerning their show of solidarity with the INM movement. At the forefront
sat the Chief of Gesgapegiag, Mr. Guy Condo who was flanked on either side
by five out of eight elected council members in attendance. Leading the
meeting was councillor Mr. Quentin Condo as he read aloud over a microphone
an information pamphlet in review of Idle No More principles and purpose.

Aboriginal peoples across Canada have kept a close eye on following the
message and direction of the movement which continues to be of peaceful
solidarity and unity. The community had decided that on Tuesday, January
1st, they would organize an event along Rte 132 that runs through the
community with a slowing down of traffic to hand out information about the
Harper Government's Bills C-45 and C-38. Councillor Mr. Quentin Condo said
during a Facebook status update that the recent event had positive results,

"Today was a good day in Gesgapegiag with the traffic slowdown and info
handouts. It was the first time that I have ever witnessed our Non-Native
neighbours delivering our protesters hot coffee to keep us warm. This
happened more than a dozen times!"

Later that evening at midnight of January 2nd, a decision was made to go
ahead with completely blocking Rte 132 as previously agreed. Since then and
up to Wednesdays meeting inside the Galgoasiet Centre community members
especially their youth manned the blockade throughout the night, despite the
frigid -27 wind chill.

During the meeting community members listened as they each respectfully
spoke about their concerns of how these Bills will affect their lives and
the lives of their future generations. Another aspect of concern was their
need to show continued solidarity and unity for Attawapiskat Chief Theresa
Spence. At this time it had been Ms. Spence's 23rd day of a hunger strike.
She has called upon the Crown's representative and the Prime Minister of
Canada to meet on a Nation to Nation basis with Indian, Metis and Inuit
Chiefs to discuss their shared Treaty relationship. In an interview with
Shane Belcourt conducted on December 21st, she explained this position in
more detail.

"It is time that both levels of government to treat us equal. To build up
our community infrastructure and let us be, like, it is the leadership's
responsibility to plan for their children's future not the Prime Minister,
not even the Crown. We have our ways, we had our ways, we had our own laws,
we had our own laws for the land, we had our own laws for Justice, we even
have our own ways for teaching our children. We need to maintain our
cultural way to survive, so that was the purpose of that treaty, to be
partners. But the way it is right now we feel like we are more like a slave
to the Minister, not a partner. When I see my leaders doing their best, it's
the government not just the Prime Minister but the Crown in both levels of
government they're all part of that treaty. It's time for everybody to work
together that means the government too."

The meeting took just over one hour before reaching a consensus on a number
of issues. Councillor Quentin Condo of Gesgapegiag said during an interview
following the meeting,

"Today's meeting was a success. People had a chance to express themselves
about their concerns and as a community we were able to come to an agreement
on how we would conduct our actions against the Harper Government. There
were many emotions because of the concerns for Chief Spence's health, the
Idle No More movement and Bill C45," he said.

Community support rally together in response to Bill C-45. (Gesgapegiag,

"We understand the people's frustrations and feelings of urgency on how they
would like to protect our Treaty Rights. The Chief and Council took the
position to support the on going 24 hour blockade that will finish at 10 pm
tonight [January 2]. Then we will, as a community, slow traffic for the
next two days to inform and invite the non-Native population to participate
in a Unity March on Saturday, January 5th."

An official Press Release has been issued to all News Media outlets by the
Chief and Council of Gesgapegiag First Nation. With the notation to

"Please direct all questions and interviews that pertain to these activities
to Mr. Quentin Condo, Councilor (418-392-1473) or Ms. Catherine Johnson,
spokesperson (418-391-2539). These are the official designated contact
people for the Micmacs of Gesgapegiag Band."
