Community calls for study of fish deformities near Alberta oil sands


 

A group of Aboriginals and scientists gathered today in Edmonton to reveal what they say is evidence that the Alberta oil sands are wreaking havoc on wildlife. White fish from Lake Athabasca, which is downstream from the oil sands, were discovered with golf-balled sized tumours and incomplete spines, or were discoloured, covered in lesions, or otherwise deformed. Understandably, “a lot of people are afraid to eat fish from the lake,” says one man from nearby Fort Chipewyan. A letter has been sent to Prime Minister Stephen Harper requesting that formal monitoring be done on the lake and its inhabitants. Previous research, including one study by Environment Canada in 2007, recognized the fish deformities, and questioned the safety of the water due to contamination.

  1. After multiple documentaries have been filmed about elevated incidences of rare bone and other cancers in Fort Chip and the surrounding area, it's only after people finally "discover" the malformed and cancerous fish in the lake that this gets any mainstream reporting? The malformed fish is old news. I wish news media in this country would produce timely reports on crucial matters like these.
    Simply put, the oil sands are a disaster in every way. These oil-hungry businessmen and economists need to add some externalities to their equations.

    • I'm sure they have.. in the form of the probability of being sued multiplied by the minimal legal expenses, settlement costs, and how much they'd have to spend travelling to Edmonton to have dinner with Stelmach.

      • More specifically I was referring to environmental and social externalities – the obvious pollution, the destruction of local industries based on nature, elevated healthcare costs, deaths and losses to quality of life, etc. Account for those and there's no way the oil sands can be considered profitable.

        • Most large businesses do account for those. They compare the cost of avoiding negative side effects with the cost of compensating for negative side effects.

          Compensation more often than not is cheaper than avoidance. All levels of government get a tax revenue cut, company shareholders have an excellent investment and any problems can be fixed by the cheaper of compensation or litigation (where litigation is usually David vs. Goliath).

          • How do you compensate someone for infertility? For the death of a loved one? How do you compensate the population of Canada/the world for emitting almost a third of out total GHG emissions? My point is the environmental and social externalities have been seriously downplayed. Neither the Albertan government nor any of the oil companies will even acknowledge the evidently dangerous levels of heavy metals in the water – they both say the levels are acceptable and perfectly safe.

        • Oh I was too.. I was suggesting they don't actually give a crap beyond how it affects the bottom line and given the current political/public climate in Alberta, how it affects the bottom line is "Not very much"

          More specifically, they are actually legally obligated not to give a crap beyond that.

          • You are clearly an unhappy person.
            You must be in favour of us buying Saudi Oil or Iranian Oil or Venezuela Oil.
            Thats where they lock up or behead dissidents or forbid women from driving or stone them for smiling at their neighbour or amputate their hands for shoplifting. These are YOUR FRIENDS?

        • Tim, you really must educate yourself about Alberta. Why?
          Oilsands enables Canada to have 60% of its own energy and not from Saudi Arabia or Iran, places that stone women etc.
          The oilsands also sends 21 BILLION DOLLARS more to Ottawa to equalisation payments to help Quebec and Ontario who are both have-not Provinces.
          Oilsands employs 230,000 people in Canada and is the largest employer of aborigiansl in the country.
          What obvious pollution? Fort McMurray air is 20 times better than Toronto. Go see it. Welcome Y'all.

          • Phillip, you really must educate yourself about the oil sands. I don't care about the money. I care about almost 1/3 of Canada's GHG emissions coming from one source. I care about the hectares of beautiful landscape that are being turned to moonscape. I care about the people getting cancer from the toxic levels of heavy metals in the water. I care about the people dying from those cancers. I care about the people whose livelihoods are being obliterated by the oil sands' gargantuan consumption of glacier water.The opportunity cost is far greater than the benefit. In purely economic terms, the oil sands are a bad investment.And just so you know, the majority of the oil from the oil sands is not staying in Canada.

    • Tim you are clearly another unhappy person. Your facts are like AVATAR just make- believe.
      You are indicating diseases that nobody has yet confirmed. Cross Cancer Institute disagrees with you (Edmonton)
      8000 yes I said 8000 aboriginals many from Fort Chip are working daily in the oilsands making good money.
      Do you really think that 8000 people can work withj diseases like you mention? Horsefeathers.
      Some natives are now MILLIONAIRES. Some were featured in the FInancial Post. Pity that an intelligent persion cant think for yourself and investigate what the real truth and not propaganda is. Get the facts. Dont copy BS.

      • Of course CCI disagrees with me. The rest of the province (AB, that is) does as well. CCI also has clear incentive to align itself with the provincial government's position on the oil sands (that they're angelic) – they challenge the government, they see their funding drop. Their website also redirects to the Alberta Health Services page…. it turns out they ARE the government! Again, of course they agree with the official position.Personally, I'm far more inclined to agree with the position of local GPs in Fort Chip that have worked there for years and are now seeing otherwise unexplicable increases in the occurrence rates of rare cancers. Proximity, objectivity, local knowledge – relatively hard to doubt them. They have hard numbers to back up their theories – these are factually rooted. Although evidently Alberta Health Services does anyway as they've been threatened with having their licenses to practice revoked and strong-armed in other ways as well.The oil sands are a political, social, and environmental disaster. There is no other way to put it. Arguments to the contrary require obliviousness or ignorance.So before you try to poke holes in my arguments with government sources and call my sources propaganda, you should probably examine your own first.The Financial Post, like the Albertan government, is a right-wing institution. Of course they will emphasize the millions made over the lives destroyed.I'd like to know how Fort Chip can have 8000 working aboriginals when its population, as recorded by the 2007 municipal Census, is 1007. Estimates from 2008 approximate it at 1016 or so. Are we back to the days when the First Nations don't count as people?

Estimates from 2008 approximate it at 1016 or so. Are we back to the days when the First Nations don't count as people?

      • Of course CCI disagrees with me. The rest of the province (AB, that is) does as well. CCI also has clear incentive to align itself with the provincial government's position on the oil sands (that they're angelic) – they challenge the government, they see their funding drop. Their website also redirects to the Alberta Health Services page…. it turns out they ARE the government! Again, of course they agree with the official position.Personally, I'm far more inclined to agree with the position of local GPs in Fort Chip that have worked there for years and are now seeing otherwise unexplicable increases in the occurrence rates of rare cancers. Proximity, objectivity, local knowledge – relatively hard to doubt them. They have hard numbers to back up their theories – these are factually rooted. Although evidently Alberta Health Services does anyway as they've been threatened with having their licenses to practice revoked and strong-armed in other ways as well.The oil sands are a political, social, and environmental disaster. There is no other way to put it.

  2. The Federal Fisheries Department under both Liberal and Conservative Governments have been monitoring this river since 1965. Part of the reason was the contamination at Gunnar Mines (radioactive) that is totally separate from oilsands and long before oilsands arrived in 1967. Everybody knows that fish in the Athabasca River way upstream of industry show warts and deformities and the lakes around Fort McMurray miles from industry also show deformities not related to industry. Go up there and see it.
    Schindlers list does not include that info.

  3. Hey Tim ,you might want to have your computer checked out…you sent the same response 49 times ! Unless your doing it on purpose to prove a point…but that would just be plain silly now wouldnt it ?

    • Thanks mate, I'll take a look. That definitely was not on purpose….Although as a side-note, the inflated post count probably gives me more street cred….
