How many jobs were affected by the Gulf Horizon spill? Or the Exxon Valdez? Of course all this is ignoring the non-human effects, as is typical for economic calculations, but why shouldn't we be concerned about the endangered species that live in the pristine wilderness of northern BC?
Maybe you are. But I am discussing the cartoon right now.

Let's also remember that a lot of the reasons the fish/trapping industries are slowing and have been moving to fish farms is because of over fishing, and heavy environmental damages over the years.
We for whatever reason, don't seem to get this, and want to continue letting big companies like Enbridge further damage things to make things worse. It's important to recognize this and continue to hold their feet to the fire over this, and stop giving them free passes.
Recent history has shown what a horrible mistake that is.
"Bev Oda doesn't regret charging taxpayers $16 for an orange juice and said today on her last day as the MP for Durham that she is retiring with honour and pride.
In an interview with CBC Network's Power & Politics, Oda refused to explain why she upgraded to a more expensive hotel during a trip to London last June and said that everyone should "move on" from talking about her travel expenses."
Embattled former cabinet minister Bev Oda offered no explanation Tuesday for her decision to resign as she prepared for her life as a private citizen — one who will garner nearly $700,000 in benefits by age 80 despite contributing only about $130,000 to her pension.
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has calculated that the 67-year-old Oda now qualifies for a parliamentary pension of $52,183 a year.
