What keeps me going are the generations to come and my love for Mother Earth. When she is hurt I feel it, it makes me cry.

The more Mother Earth is off balance the crazier the world is. I believe a lot of what is happening now and why the world is so insane is because Mother Earth is off balance.”

Individuals have to have that drive, that courage and that choice to go against the norm. Figure out what is really important in your life. What are you chasing and is it because you have been conditioned?

How do you really want to live? Can you do that in a way that your grandkids won’t be saying, “fuck you, you just lived in this crazy way that put my generation in danger.”

J’ai vécu « l’expérience » TransCanada il y a dix ans lorsqu’ils voulaient implanter un port méthanier, et cela a vraiment été désagréable car ils ont détruit le tissus social de nos petites municipalités. Cela a été très difficile à vivre au quotidien. La cohésion sociale est vitale pour développer nos régions, mais tout était basé sur des mensonges. Aujourd’hui, l’histoire se répète, mais nous sommes beaucoup plus nombreux à ne pas les croire…”

Perhaps we have to look at life inward for that answer. For a settlement of compromise, compassion, love, kindness. That’s how you create your walk on the earth. Go in the gentlest way possible.  Simple little words that our grandfathers, our grandmothers taught us when we were children. But we broke ‘em all.

To move ahead, perhaps we have to move within.”

On a acheté la propriété ici en 2009. C’était comme la consécration d’un rêve. Quand on a eu vent du projet de l’oléoduc, ça a nous complètement jeté à terre. Ça venait vraiment à l’encontre de nos valeurs. Quand on a acheté on se disait qu’enfin on est chez nous, mais là on apprend que c’est que l’un des plus gros pollueurs du Canada qui peut venir s’installer chez nous et nous déposséder de nos biens. C’était terrible.

If faut protéger qu’est ce que on as, puis il faut se défendre.”

(Translation) We bought this property in 2009. It was the realization of a dream. When we found out about the pipeline project it was like the ground had dropped out from under us.

But, what we learned is that the largest polluter in Canada and take over your land. It is terrible.

I realized that the oil is going to go through Ontario. It is going through areas that I love to hunt and fish. What are we going to get for it? There are few jobs here because the pipeline is already built and they just have to modify it. Who’s going to get the money?

The oil will be shipped out of the country. It isn’t for Canada the oil, it is to ship to other parts of the world. The end result is we have the risk but we don’t get any of the money from the product.”

We have to transport oil; we’re going to be an oil based economy for decades to come.

The railway method is proving to be quite hazardous. I believe that if we have to use pipelines, they should be built new to begin with, not converted from old pipelines. They should be engineered to include every possible safety precaution that engineers can dream of. Sure, it will be expensive but we want to protect our environment.”

I remember when they put the first pipeline in. I know as kids we went there and when they had the pipe strung out we would play on it, run on top, run through them. We used to go as close as we could because there was a lot of equipment and things I had never seen in my life before. Everything was new at the time.

Thinking back now, I more than likely was as interested in that pipeline coming through as my grandson was with the new wind turbines we have.”

I guess I didn’t really notice the oil industry growing up. Now I notice it more. It is really prevalent here, it is big money & jobs. It is sort of a conflict of interest depending on where your focus is… the agriculture? Or getting as much oil out of the land as possible?

I don’t have any solutions, but I do see problems.”
