OIL ENERGY vs WATER ENERGY
Of course, anything done in public is carefully orchestrated and what US President Obama is really doing is shaping public opinion both in Canada and the United States with his public statements and, in the above photo, both Harper and Obama are listening in their earphones taking instructions on what exactly to say when it is their turn to speak on the grand stage of politics.
However, when history is written, it will be U.S. President Barack Obama and his administration who will be credited with accomplishing the seemingly impossible political objective of quietly securing access to Canada's vast water resources for continental purposes.
Canada, especially its oil producing province of Alberta, has a notoriously bad, but deserved, reputation for environmental destruction and serious public health issues as a result of oil industry toxic pollution.
Canada has also refused to share its water wealth thereby threatening the economies of both the United States and Mexico.
The refusal to share water is viewed by some commentators as a crime against humanity and there is a growing movement to have the United Nations declare a human right to water. This movement is led in Canada by a woman named Maude Barlow who, over a decade ago, appeared on a radio show with Jack B. Lindsey the President and CEO of Sun Belt Water Inc.
Maude Barlow expressed the intelligent opinion that the government of Canada should pay out the claim of Sun Belt Water Inc. but the crooked civil servants and the crooked politicians in Canada did not follow her opinion and, instead, people were murdered to protect the guilty.
The Canadian government is officially extremely opposed to making water a human right because that would affect Canada's plans to make huge profits selling water on international markets.
