For Preventing The Children of Poor People in Ireland From Being A burden to Their Parents or Country, and For Making Them Beneficial to The Public It is a melancholy object to those who walk through this great town or travel in the country, when they see the streets, the roads, and cabin doors, crowded with beggars of the female sex, followed by three, four, or six children, all in rags and importuning every passenger for an alms.
Eagle Spirit Energy has an ambitious plan to deliver oil from the Oil sands of Fort McMurray to tidewater at Grassy Point located to the North of Lax Kw'alaams The consortium of groups led by Thirty Five First Nations that is looking to build a bitumen pipeline from Fort McMurray to just north of Lax Kw'alaams has ramped up the profile building for their proposed development, offering up the bold declaration as to how the Eagle Spirit Energy pipeline project will be the Cleanest Energy Project on the planet.
The positioning claim came in a media release from earlier this week from Eagle Spirit Chairman and CEO Calvin Helin, who outlined the oversight process in place for the proposed pipeline development. Firstly, ESE will utilize green hydro energy for all power requirements in the corridor.
Secondly, ESE has developed the most robust spill prevention model in the world—one that, exceeds the current minimal standards of the federal Oceans Protection Plan.
Lastly, we will seek best-in-class technologies such as that of RII to produce Canadian oil with the lowest GHG footprint on the planet.
North America, which Eagle Spirit has partnered with on the pipeline plan. There was however no additional information provided as part of the media release to explain how the proposed project will meet such a lofty benchmark, nor comparisons with other projects around the world which could be used as a comparison.
Further notes on the range of technology that RII has developed can be reviewed here. Eagle Spirit has also not to this point, hosted any form of public information session in Prince Rupert to share their plans with the regional community and outline how the company envisions the pipeline and terminal development coming together on the North Coast.
As part of their same announcement this week, Eagle Spirit also outlined how it has secured an off take commitment from a major national oil company not named in the media release to receive partially upgraded bitumen from the Eagle Spirit pipeline and shipping terminal projects.

The Lax Kw'alaams however have set in motion some legal procedures related to resource development, with the Band filing its court claim back in March against the Federal government's oil tanker ban.
There has so far, been no update provided on the progress of that legal quest. In his comments of last ThursdayMr. Trudeau made note of the progress of Bill C48 and the Liberal's plans for an oil tanker moratorium and how the Great Bear Rain forest is no place for tankers.
The understanding of how important it is to make sure that we are protecting this area, the Great Bear Rainforest and the Great Bear Sea for future generations. Getting that balance right is something that is an ongoing conversation and is something that we need to continue to do.
But I also know there are people who are concerned and rightly so, about the future of their economies, of their communities, of the opportunities that their citizens will have.

by Dr. Jonathan Swift It is a melancholy object to those, who walk through this great town1, or travel in. A modest proposal by Jonathan Swift is fanatically savage and has a very surprise ending.
The author uses satire, to make a point about the English government allowing the citizens of Ireland to starve to death. The surprise ending or the not so surprise ending for me is his confession of not being able to provide in any way to the proposal he just wrote.
He confesses in having a child whom does not meet his proposal criteria and a . The arrangement, though unusual, was made in such a manner as to excite no surprise.
Nor could they have supposed, that in his change of character and relations, his heart was susceptible of the diabolical intents he must have cherished over night, and felt in midst of his impious devotions. In "A Modest Proposal," Swift develops his argument through satire. Swift's purpose is to criticize the English response to the severe poverty in .
