That is all about carbon emissions and global warming which is a scam,

 

Carbon emissions are no longer considered pollution.  Thanks for the information.

Ah, the easiest way to do nothing about global warming is to deny it exists in the first place.  Just say no!

No wonder Canada is so polluted, they must think like you two. Make excuses and try and blame others. California is the most polluted state in the U.S., a liberal Democrat state. Just the facts. Global warming and all of its lies have been exposed many times now. That has little to do with what Canada is doing. Polluting a river does not create global warming. Dumping raw sewage does not create global warming. Facts. Threatening its citizen with radioactive waste does not create global warming. Canada is doing all that according to Canadian articles. Try and separate the two next time, lol.

Industry creates pollution.  Mining spoils natural wilderness beauty.  No one is denying that.  But you are the one that wants to do away with all environmental protection regulations.  Wake up!

1.) I'm not Canadian. Born and raised in the Deep South U.S. of A.

 

2.) You seem to be the one making excuses and blaming others all the time. I'm giving you facts about the most polluted states in the U.S. Are other states polluted? Yes, every single state in the union is polluted in one way or another. I don't think anyone is disputing that, other than you. But California's air pollution still isn't bad enough to rank it in the Top 20 Most polluted U.S. states. Most air-polluted? Yes, probably, because it's a huge state with a lot of roads and a huge car culture.

 

3.) This thread, that you started, is entitled "Canada Clean Up", and all you've posted are non-sourced article fragments about POLLUTION, not global warming. So you are the one trying to change the topic, not me.

We have a party in Canada called The Green Party.  It is way to the left of even the Liberal Party.  It actually tries to do something about the 'Canadian' environmental disasters that you have been mentioning (though not sourced) but it is constantly up against Right Wingers and big business interests who try to keep the public in the dark and pay off corrupt officials.

That is the hypocrisy of your thread.  We all know it is in retaliation to several Canadians taking a poke at you.  But this thread is the height of hypocrisy on your part.  You deny pollution in your own country to protect right wing interests but point a finger at another country.  How convenient.  I point at everyone because it is calling it like it is.

I never posted about Canadian carbon emissions, maybe that flew over your heads. So someone brings it up and tries to change the subject from the pollution Canada is doing. Totally different, one is used by the global warming scam and this is something else that affects local citizens. Back to reality now.

Many years ago Texas used to be a polluted state, I saw it. But they cleaned it up back then and now are much cleaner. California still has not cleaned up its act, and it's run by liberal Democrats. So stop pretending like the Democrats are the party of clean environments. When they clean up their own environment then they can start preaching to others. California also goes around environmental laws itself, like building dams in the delta to protect fresh water without due process. They allow the killing of endangered species for wind power, have the most polluted air quality. The big gas leak just happened. All under the control of Democrats. Flint, Michigan is a very liberal city that switched water to a polluted river. On and on, so enough of this. The facts are there, Democrats pollute.

So your argument is that if any state that is "Blue" pollutes, that justifies every other state to do it? That's a scary mentality. If someone does something bad, then everyone else can too. 

 

Texas may have made some headway, and good for them, and more power to them, but they are still #3 on the most polluted list, behind only Ohio and Kentucky.

 

This isn't a left/right, Dem/Rep issue. Or it shouldn't be. It's about making the world a better, cleaner, healthier place for our kids and grand kids. Why that's a bad thing, I'll never know.

Canadian Arctic waters pollution

Under the 1970 Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention Act, the Canadian government established a document to prevent pollution of Canadian Arctic waters. However, in recent years Arctic waters have become increasingly polluted. It was recently found that due to pollution some waters have levels of lead that are higher than the Canadian guidelines.

 

Coastal communities that emit waste also contribute to arctic pollution. Arctic coastal communities do not presently have the infrastructure necessary to properly deal with their waste, this could lead to greater pollution in the future as these communities continue to grow in size. Other than coastal communities, waste and litter from the rest of the world continues to be a significant issue in the Arctic, with waste levels doubling in the past ten years.The most significant types of litter found are plastic items and plastic bags.

 

*********************************************************************

Looks like the Canadian Arctic waters are being polluted too, and high levels of lead sounds like Flint, Michigan. Notice too that there are already environmental laws to prevent this pollution but they are not working. So for those who keep preaching about lack of laws they already exist, but are not being followed in Canada apparently. The polluted Arctic waters prove it.

Where socialism thrives, the environment dies

 

Time Magazine produced a report in 2009 which listed the world’s 10 most polluted cities. They were:

  1. Kabwe, Zambia
  2. Sumgayit, Azerbaijan
  3. Norilsk, Russia
  4. Dzerzhinsk, Russia
  5. La Oroya, Peru
  6. Sukinda, India
  7. Tianying, China
  8. Linfen, China
  9. Chernobyl, Ukraine
  10. Vapi, India

Guess what all these cities have in common? They’re all in currently or formerly socialist countries.

 

***********************************************************************

I don't know how socialists have gotten away with pretending they are great for the environment, but when you look at the worlds most polluted cities they certainly show they have been horrible or worse at protecting it.

I went to the store today, and picked up a new flavor of Ruffles potato chips, "All Dressed, the #1 flavor of Canada!"

 

So what the heck is All Dressed? Tell me, my northern partisans.

 

Are you begging MovieMadness to chime in with the answer?

100 municipalities discharge sewage into Quebec's waterways

While Montreal grabs headlines for its plan to dump 8-billion litres of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence River, 101 other municipalities regularly discharge their wastewater into Quebec's waterways without treatment or filtration, Radio-Canada has learned.

 

One of them, Chute-aux-Outardes, near Baie-Comeau, has been dumping 310-million litres of wastewater into the Outardes River each year since the 1950s.

 

**************************************************************

Something has to be done about this dumping of raw sewage in Canada, it sounds like it has been going on for way too long and needs to be stopped. 100 municipalities are doing it and that is only in one small area, I can't imagine how many more there are. Canada definitely does not care about it's environment, what a smelly mess.

Pristine No More

In August 2014, an earthen dam holding back a nearly one-square-mile waste pond collapsed at the Mount Polley mine in British Columbia. About 4.5 billion gallons of water, full of toxic ​debris, destroyed a creek and fouled two lakes and the surrounding forest.

 

Alongside big events like the Mount Polley disaster is the slow leach of toxins into Alaska waters. The Tulsequah Chief mine, built in the 1950s near the confluence of the Tulsequah River and the transboundary Taku River — and just over the border — has been polluting the Tulsequah for decades.

 

*****************************************************************

Mine disasters are not good, and neither is allowing the leaching of toxins. So Canada is sending polluted waters directly into Alaska too. On each side of the border they do it, and nobody does anything.

Canada's tar sands companies fail to clean up toxic waste, report finds

None of the companies operating in Canada's tar sands have met a commitment to clean up the vast and expanding sprawl of toxic waste ponds, an official report has found.

 

Mining waste from the tar sands, a mix of water, sand, silt, clay, contaminants, and hydrocarbons, is dumped in a system of open lakes, known as tailing ponds.

 

The ponds are hugely toxic to marine life, and some 7,000 ducks and geese die every year after mistakenly landing there.

 

************************************************************************

And they said global warming was bad for birds, how about toxic waste ponds, lol.

Oilsands study confirms tailings found in groundwater, river

New federal research confirms that Alberta’s oilsands are polluting ground water and seeping into the Athabasca River.

 

The industry has maintained that toxic chemicals are contained safely in tailing ponds, but new research shows this isn’t the case.

 

“They found also not only are those tailings ponds leaking, but it looks like it is flowing pretty much from those tailings ponds, through the ground and into the Athabasca River.”

 

******************************************************************

When the river turned dark brown they probably should have put two and two together. Are the Beverly Hillbillies running things? Canada, I am absolutely amazed at how much pollution you have. Our worst state California is squeaky clean compared to this stuff.

How is California our worst state?

 

Ohio is the most polluted.

 

Mississippi is the poorest.

 

Alaska has the highest crime rate.

How can we stop our waterways from choking on plastic?

The plastic pollution levels in Canada’s freshwater are no less alarming.  Studies have found over six million bits of plastic per square kilometre in the Great Lakes, which is more than double what’s been found in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (also known as the “Pacific trash vortex” of the central North Pacific Ocean).

 

A staggering 80 per cent of litter in the Great Lakes region is plastic. Plastic water bottles are particularly concerning: one third of those purchased in Toronto are not recycled. What’s not recycled ends up in landfills or as litter.

 

*****************************************************************

If Canada is going to pollute the Great Lakes with plastic they should make the plastic water bottles look like fish or baby ducks. Maybe fewer people will notice the pollution that way.

Oil Sands Could Threaten Millions of Migratory Birds

An anonymous tip last April alerted Canadian officials to the fact that 500 ducks had mistaken an oil sands company's pollutant-filled reservoir in Alberta as a safe place to land. To the public's dismay, only three birds survived.

 

Hundreds of decomposed ducks have since risen to the surface, leading Syncrude Canada to clarify last week that its lake-sized reservoir, known as a tailings pond, in fact killed an estimated 1,606 birds, mostly mallards. Tailings ponds hold a watery mix of clay, sand, hydrocarbons, and heavy metals that remains after the oil extraction process.

 

**************************************************************************

It took an anonymous tip to figure this out, lol. Like nobody could guess ducks would land in a pond even if it was polluted with oil and toxic waste.
