Mustard Gas and Seismic Blasts

underwater-barrels_fp.jpgThe threat of chemical dumps in Atlantic waters
The coastal waters of Atlantic Canada have been polluted with a legacy of chemical, biological and nuclear weaponry. The primary culprits include the Canadian, American and British militaries, which have obsessed over our safety from alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, while the communities and eco-systems of the Atlantic region have been under attack from the very same weapons of mass destruction since the 1940's. Now, with corporations being given permission to do seismic testing in Atlantic waters, the impact of these dumpsites may be compounded.

irving_fp.jpgThe Irving Media Monopoly in New Brunswick

We face classic problems of monopoly media ownership in which homogeneity and a narrow range of opinion are common features of the news media.
