opinion blog

I feel like the oil sands are bad for the environment because it harms everything near it. not only the water, the oil sands give fish cancer and brain tumors because of the water. the people that eat the fish can rare cancers that can kill them because they eat the food they have there they eat a lot of fish in fort chip. the further the development goes on the oil sands will make more and more green house gas. in the water  the arsenic is 1200x the amount it should be. that is really not safe for anyone. the oil sands are hurting everyone and everything near it. it should be stoped
