Pro-Chinese March; Calgary, Canada, March 2008

Taken on 2008-03-29

Image shows a pro-Chinese protest organised Chinese nationals dwelling in Canada. Signs held by protestors convey of message against what they perceive as Western media bias and a unrealistic portray of the situation in Tibet. This occurred at the 2008 Olympic Torch Relay, 2008 being the year Beijing hosted the Games. The protest was likely a response to the usage of the relay by protestors in Paris, London, San Francisco, New Delhi, Islamabad, and Jakarta, Soeul and more to campaign for a free Tibet.

Taken on 2006-04-04

This is a picture of Syncrude's base mine. The yellow structures are the bases of pyramids made of sulphur - it is not economical for Syncrude to sell the sulphur so it stockpiles it instead. Behind that is the tailings pond, held in by what is recognized as the largest dam in the world. The extraction plant is just to the right of this photograph and most of the mine is to the left.
