      A group of climate-change activists this morning (January 15) declared the Vancouver hearings on Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway pipeline a “climate crime scene”.

      According to a news release sent out by activists, five people were arrested. The protesters snuck into the hearing area and revealed T-shirts bearing messages like "Stop the pipelines".

      Last night (January 14), a large crowd of protesters greeted the opening of the Joint Review Panel hearings at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre.

      Those people never should've been arrested. They're telling the truth and are the voice for thousands of people. On behalf of a person to cowardly to do what you did, I say thanks!

      How nice of the half-baked, professional protestors to give credibility to the review panel ... who believed that half-baked, professional protestors would interfere with the hearings.

      Not one of them looks old enough to shave, let alone think critically.

      Let's ban the spin doctors on both sides of the issue.

      I support all those opposing the northern gateway pipeline. Harper's Canada is not what my parents, great-grandparents build with their blood sweat and tears. Harper's behind closed doors and under the table deals erodes our Canadian consititution and basic human rights. We are here because of the environement. Without the environment, fresh air, clear clean water, all the creatures great and small that are part of our world, we could not and would not survive. The more man chooses to destroy the environment, man is in effect committing suicide. A lot of the general public is not aware at how much fresh water is used in extracting oil from under the earth. I've never seen any living creature drink or eat oil and live.
