Mother Earth waited in a Halloween line-up outside Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s residence in Ottawa this evening to ask him for no more environmental ‘tricks’ and instead to ‘treat’ the Earth well by not allowing Taseko’s mine waste to be dumped into Fish Lake.
While the prime minister was present for an earlier photo-op of handing out candy out to children, he dodged Mother Earth and the message had to be given to an assistant (dressed as an Egyptian pharaoh) on the front steps of 24 Sussex Drive.
Be sure to send your own message to the prime minister this Halloween weekend as cabinet is expected to decide on Fish Lake any day now. Send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
