International oil and gas, timber, mining, metal and water companies would love to own Canada's national parks---Alcan, General Electric, Suez and Thames Water. Water is known as Blue Gold or Liquid Gold. When Gordon Campbell was premier of British Columbia, he gave energy companies drilling rights on provincial Crown land, and Gordon Campbell was, or still is, an Alcan shareholder.
Lyrics to the song "This Land is Our Land Canada" by The Travellers. YouTube has many videos featuring this song:
This land is your land, This land is my land,
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island;
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lakes waters,
This land was made for you and me.
Wal-Mart was thwarted in their attempt to build a store near a Civil War battlefield Manassas, Virginia. And the Walt Disney Corporation planned to build a theme park near Revolutionary War and Civil War landmarks in Virginia. David McCullough, President of the Society of American Historians, said:
"Would we as a country want a theme park at Normandy Beach? Would we permit that? Would we, in the name of creating jobs, make splinters of Mount Vernon?"
|Mount Vernon in Virginia, home of the first President of the United States, George Washington.|
