13. No, not many of you enjoy the environmental abuse of the tar sands either ...
... so please don't feel that I was aiming that comment at all Canadians.
I apologise to you (and any other Canadian reader not involved in this thread)
if it read as too broad a brush stroke. I intended it as a direct response to
the "defence" of the tar sands as being somehow environmentally friendly.

FWIW, I don't pick out "one country for supplying it while ignoring the impact
of the rest" nor do I overlook the incredible apathy shown by most Americans
with regard to oil pollution before the media-fest of this recent event.

I will debate the seal "hunt" elsewhere because, as you noted, it isn't relevent
to the body of this thread but was added as a question to the person who doesn't
seem to recognise the problems with tar sands (wherever they are). Again, sorry
if I cause offence to you by not making that clear.
