There she goes again.

I'm pissed.

I just found out that my banking institution is heavily involved in the Tar Sands. This is the same bank that last year pledged to spend 50 million dollars for clean drinking water. It only spent 3, then went and invested $641 million in government-subsidized, foreign-owned oil and gas companies !!!

That is a huge load of BS. I'm not standing for it. Neither should you. Check out to see how your bank is using your money, and talk to your local branch. Only by putting pressure on the companies will they change. And remember my favorite business quote when dealing with technocratic, short sighted capitalist drones:
"There can be no business done on a dead planet."
If you want to learn more about the Tar sands, VICE of all media did an amazing documentary on the Tar Sands, called Toxic Alberta . I like it because there is drinking, smoking and swearing in it.
