Yesterday I experienced another little heartache. After returning to Southeast Sask. with wonderful like minded companions and a dog that was bred, trained and superbly skilled to show me some pheasants, and after enjoying the unique thrill of hunting new country with new friends and working very very hard for many hours with only one bird to share with loved ones for our efforts, I came across this barren industrial wasteland that was once one of my favourite pheasant coverts. Ripped up to make way for another oil well. A well that will likely produce oil below cost of production.
I hope the people flying in jets and wasting electricity and driving cars and big trucks (like mine) appreciate the trade offs and costs. I doubt that many Canadians ever truly measure their lifestyle vs the cost.
