Tribal Ceremony on Tarsands Megaload Route

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 12/23/2013

A tribal ceremony took place in Pendelton on December 23 on the route of the Alberta tarsands megaload.
The coalition of indigenous people from across the Northwest were joined by other activists who oppose moving extraction equipment to Canada through Oregon.
Many people question the Oregon Department of Transportation decision to issue permits to a Hillsboro-based company to transport massive pieces of oil extraction equipment across Oregon.
The equipment is on its way to Canada, where it will be used in Alberta to extract tar sands that will then be shipped by pipeline through the U-S for export.
Protests over the last several weeks delayed the first of three planned ‘megaload’ shipments, with some protesters chaining themselves to the truck to try to stop the load from moving forward.
The first megaload did manage to pass out of Oregon and into Idaho, but two more loads have already received their permits.
The confederated tribes of the Umatilla have lodged a formal complaint with the Oregon department of Transportation that they were not consulted before the permits were issued.
KBOO reporter Paul Roland was on the scene for a live report.
