C38, Canada sold to the oligarchs

Only about 2 or 3 years ago Canada was an environmental gem, with strong laws in every respect.  The oil industry changed that over the last 2 years with help to and from the conservatives and the XL pipeline push, and it wisely partnered up with the paper industry, fish processors, mining companies, and utilities.
June 19, 2012 the Canadian government passed C38.

C38 guts, weakens doesn't do it justice, it guts:
Fishing quotas
Mining laws
Clean air and water standards
Alternative energies
Timber harvesting standards
Wildlife protection
Development in pristine areas
Chemical safety standards
A near shut down of the Canadian EPA

C38 is nothing more than the sales contract transferring Canada to the oligarchs.  The Republicans are watching, they can hardly keep their magic underwear dry.
