Apparently Harper has granted Shell permission to drill for oil off the coast of Nova Scotia. This is right by the Sable Island National Park Reserve, which has the world’s largest breeding colony of grey seals in the Shelburne Basin.
Shell’s application is risky. The company would have 21 days to cap a blowout!
The Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board are the group who decide if Shell will have the go ahead.
This group is corrupt!
The Conservative government has appointed Douglas Gregory, a Shell executive to the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board (CNSOPB) for 30 years!
The corporate cronyism is unacceptable, and it puts our coast at risk!
The CNSOPB must reject the application!
