Two sales, two tales, both questionable and very scary.

Last week, we saw the U.S. orchestrating the arrest of Marc Emery for 
the sale of marijuana seeds.

This week, we see the sale of Terasen Gas to an American right-wing 
extremist who is a huge financial supporter of George Bush and his ideology.

Forget the issue of gas supply.

The more important question is: What direction will Terasen's 
corporate citizenship now take?

Where will its funds go?

All the things that make us proudly Canadian are hanging on a precipice.

These include our role as peacekeeper rather than warmonger, 
pro-choice rather than no-choice, equal rights versus no rights.

The hungry giant to the south is slowly gobbling us up, and we're not 
even batting an eyelash.

Wake up, Canada.
