‘Last wilderness’: Alberta chief wants meeting on land approved for oilsands

first_img“I’m very confident that he will get to the table,” said Grandjamb.“(That’s) based on his public statements, based on his consultations with the chiefs of Alberta, based on my open discussion with him, based on his analysis that we have to work together to move Alberta forward.”This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 1, 2019.— Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960Bob Weber, The Canadian PressAdvertisement “This is our last wilderness.”In 2018, the band thought it had a deal putting a 10-kilometre buffer around the lake. The deal was never ratified and, in June 2018, Alberta’s energy regulator approved a $440-million, 10,000-barrel-a-day oilsands mine that would come within two kilometres of the shore.The First Nation is fighting that approval and arguments were heard this week in the Alberta Court of Appeal.Grandjamb said the band has a five-year-old letter from former premier Jim Prentice endorsing the Moose Lake plan. The chief said it’s time Kenney lived up to the government’s promises — and his own.Advertisement EDMONTON — The chief of a First Nation that has taken Alberta to court to protect its “last wilderness” wants to meet with Premier Jason Kenney to get him to honour the government’s promises.“We’re confident that the new government is going to do right,” said Grand Chief Mel Grandjamb of the Fort McKay First Nation. “There were commitments to the community.”The First Nation is surrounded on three sides by oilsands development. Mines come as close as four kilometres to the community.- Advertisement -The band has been negotiating for two decades with the province to protect Moose Lake, west of the townsite.“We want to be able to smell the good air,” said Grandjamb.“The water is good enough to drink right from the lake. We send hunting camps out there every year. We supply cabins to all our elders who want to go out there.Advertisementlast_img read more

Mega Beauty 22 inch BLEACH BLONDE : really lovely hair

first_imgGood quality hair, but the colour was more a darker honey blonde so we had to lighten them but that was fairly easy as just the blue shampoos worked ruth prolonged use. Excellent will definitely buy from here again and again excellent quality true to the description very very happy with this product. Lush hair, had to order two due to blending in with my real hair. Daughter very happy and getting this length is amazing as not readily available on high street. After being dyed to my hair colour they suited perfect. Easy to wash and straighten etc. Only problem was that they are very think at the ends. 22 inch BLEACH BLONDE (Col 613). Full Head Clip in Human Hair Extensions. High quality Remy Hair!. : My daughter is very happy with these. I’ve had extensions for 20years and this is the best quality hair i’ve had, and such good value for money, the only thing i was a bit disappointed about was the thickness of it, i had to attach 2 prices together for thickness, if you wanted to do a full thick head of hear you’d need 3-4packs. Very pleased with this product. Good quality hair, and great length ( i would say slightly longer than 22-inch so you can style if needed without losing length). Slightly more yellow than other #613 blondes i have previously bought, but that can be easily fixed with silver toning shampoo. Will be buying this product again shortly. Extremely good extensions for the price. Just as good as the ones i used to get, which were £50 more. I’ve dyed them already and they’re still looking great. Was worried about buying them, but i’m glad i did. So i have recently been thinking about dying my hair dip dye brown on the top and blonde at the bottom after searching all over for different types of human hair extensions i ended up buying these. For human hair extensions which is very good. I ordered these on thursday and they came today so super fast delivery.(however i did order them via prime, ‘next day delivery, even though they came 2 days after it was still super fast so i’m very impressed). I opened the pack and everything was there the extensions are super soft. And do actually feel like human hair. However they are quite thin so i advise if you have super short hair and your buying these to add to the length and volume it most likely won’t work so i wouldn’t buy these. But if your hair is mid length and your buying to add to it or add volume then they are perfect for that. However the ends are abit thiner than expected so possibley 2 packs may be a better buy. Really nice piece but sadly it really heavy on my hair and pulls a lot when put in place. Really pleased with extensions, they are exactly what i wanted, was described really well and the person i spoke to about the item was very friendly and happy to help, would recommend this product. Very pleased with my extensions, nice neat ends. However took a very long time for me to get them; but the lady i spoke to about it was really helpful. Will be buying them again in the future.
