+Saputo It is my understanding that Chilliwack Cattle Sales supplies milk to your company.  Please let us know that you will no longer be purchasing and/or using any products from Chilliwack Cattle Sales until the SPCA has completed an investigation  into the recently alleged horrific cattle abuse on their premises and that Chilliwack Cattle Sales have instituted appropriate measures to ensure that abuse like this never happens again.  What safeguards do you implement when you first vet prospective suppliers and what safeguards do you have on an ongoing basis to guard against the abuse of animals as is recently alleged to have been going on at Chilliwack Cattle Supplies?
The B.C. SPCA has recommended animal cruelty charges against eight employees of a Chilliwack dairy farm after they were caught on hidden camera allegedly abusing cattle. The employees were suspended Friday after the allegations surfaced. On Monday night, all eight were fired from Chilliwack Cattle Sales, Canada's largest dairy farm.

Saputo finally heard the growing chorus of concerned consumers and their recent refusal to use any milk from the BC Milk Marketing Board has led the Board to destroy milk coming from Chilliwack Cattle Sales.

Please Contact Diana McQueen & Peter Kent To Save The Little Smoky Caribou Herd From Extinction

It is really disheartening to see what is happening to our woodland caribou in Alberta, Canada.    

As an Alberta youngster in the 60's I remember trips to forested areas with my parents and I marvelled at the diversity of wildlife and the beautiful wilderness that we were blessed with.  So much has changed these past fifty years.  Now our wilderness lies scarred and naked and our wildlife has been swept away as we carve up our most pristine wilderness with abandon.  

Some day our grandchildren and their descendents will hold us in contempt for allowing species after species to perish needlessly.  We had fair warning nearly thirty years ago that we were on the path to endangering these majestic animals.

We are terrible custodians of the land we live on.  Shame on us for letting this happen!

In the map below, the little green speck on the map of Alberta just to the right of Jasper Park is the last refuge left to the Little Smoky Caribou Herd.  Their intactness area is under assault by our resource extraction efforts and soon the herd will be gone forever unless government leaders step in and give the herd real protection.

Please share this post with others and take a few minutes to send an email (addresses below) to Diana McQeen and Peter Kent.  Let them know that as government leaders responsible for the environment they need to act now to save the Little Smoky Caribou Herd from extinction.

We'd better learn to adapt to a more toxic environment

I doubt that we'll collectively take the actions needed to avoid what comes after reaching the tipping point.  

Sadly if our history of past actions holds true we'll wade into this one up to our armpits and keep on walking till we hear bubble noises.
Humans are so altering Earth's biosphere that an international team is warning "a state shift" could be just decades away.

Why you'll never own a handheld four-stroke grass trimmer :-)
Answer:In order to function, an internal combustion gasoline engine must 'inspire' (breathe in) a fuel/air mixture, compress that mixture, burn it,.

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi calls Euro Zone Unsustainable

Is it too late to save the Euro? Can the leaders in Europe act swiftly enough, and in harmony, to adopt stronger central fiscal controls and stay the course on austerity measures? It's beginning to look like the answers may be yes and no respectively.
The European Central Bank chief calls the currency union “unsustainable” and says more central control of national finances is needed if it is to survive.
