That is old news. John Bolenbaugh interviewed residents 2 years ago that said they saw Enbridge put chemicals into the river after the spill near his house. John has shown tar balls and submerged tar sand oil over 100 times. Why do you think Enbridge is re cleaning the river at a cost of $200,000,000? Because of John. Why write about a group that has did nothing for the first 3 years of the oil spill. They never ever tried to protest, get the river cleaned better, or helped one sick resident. John did all of those things over and over and over again, ALL BY HIMSELF!!! Micats are only doing this now to try to get out of felony charges and they are trying to get money donated to them for it. https://vimeo.com/helppa for the video truth that Micats, Chris and Craig Ritter are just coping johns investigated evidence. They aren't telling you the truth. Why waste time writing about a group that hasnt did anything. Write about the Whistle Blower that lost every thing to do the right thing at no benefit to himself.

Most people never knew a major pipeline was around here until this, its disgusting what companies do to this earth we were blessed with all for profits. Rich pigs must have already found a new planet that sustains human life, because they know what's going to be here eventually(nothing).

John Bolenbaugh, A day with CRAIG RITTER. by John Bolenbaugh 592 views on youtube.
The discription used to read as follows before it was changed in spite of.

A great man (Craig) that really cares about Michigan and the environment that has been destroyed by Enbridge. Craig knows what it's like to be harassed as he has been documenting the spill on video since the very first day. He's been in the Creek, River & Wood's that have been effected by the spill gathering his own information. In this video we share a day along the Talmadge Creek with him.

P.S.
No matter how many times you change a post you can always find it archived somewhere online.
Also PLEASE post an link to an archived video that shows John pulling out Tar Balls and or his science research data proving this claim that he made so long ago.

Thank You So Much!

Write about the Whistle Blower that lost every thing to do the right thing at no benefit to himself, Said Courtney.
From what I've read about the Whistle Blower he seems to have a shady past and also wouldn't settleing a big law suit like he did be beneficial to himself? It appears he has not donated any money back into the community except for free shirts and signs to further promote and benifit himself all at the communities expense. Maybe he should stop begging everyone for money all the time as it makes him look as he is trying to make a career out of this instead of it truly coming from the heart.

Shame on you for trying to discredit anyone that is helping to bring more light to this matter, that is all that should matter and not ME, ME, ME, ME, ME!

Craig has been proved to be lying. It is only a discredit if they are lying and craig is lying. And John has never once lied. And he donated $4,000 after the settlement for the 3 year anniversary. Food, drinks, go carts, rides, and much more. For his community to have a day of fun and education. the settlement was a small one and was more than $200,000 less than he would have made in the same time with the same hours he has put in for free if he would have kept his mouth shut and allowed them to bury and cover up the oil. John has received less than $3,000 in donations an he has spent over $35,000 out of his pocket. You have no clue what you are talking about.

14Oct14.....Complain all you like, but there is NO business like the Oil & Gas business. It employs millions, keeps people mobile in their vehicles and travelling on airplanes. It allows the farmers of the WholeWideWorld to grow their crops and get them to market. It allows trains to take things to terminals for export. It allows millions of trucks ( truckers ) to earn an income for their families. It replaced Gold a long, long time ago. You can't put gold into your gas tank.

Ps:.....The day the complainers shut down the Oil & Gas business, they had better have someone
in mind from their amongst their own miscreants to ' turn out the lights ' all over and everywhere.
