While Chief Spence's hunger strike is motivated by "pain," Natasha's post, as she says herself, is motivated by "anger." Both are right to say that Bill C-45 (now before the Senate) will result in further destruction of the environment and those communities that lie in the path of proposed oil and gas pipelines.

Take some time to read this bill, particularly with respect to changes in the Navigable Waters Protection Act.
