Turns out MCW Energy, another Canadian tar sands strip-mining company, was “unveiling its proprietary, oil sands extraction technology near Vernal, Utah” today.
According to MCW’s press release: “The occasion will be marked with a ribbon-c…utting ceremony and a demonstration of MCW’s extraction plant on MCW’s lease site at Asphalt Ridge, near Vernal, Utah. Many local dignitaries, Utah State officials and the corporate MCW team are scheduled to be in attendance at this benchmark resource development event.”
Come chipmunks and land defenders marked the occasion by greeting all of those dignitaries, officials and corporate tools to boos & hisses as they arrived at the company’s processing plant.
“We will continue to stand against all tar sands mining in the region,” one chipmunk stated.
A message to MCW and their potential investors: you are investing in death, and we will not allow your project to move forward.
