Most people know that keeping an adult chimpanzee in your house is not a wise idea. They could at any time eat your face off, rip off your testicles, slit your belly open, and bite off all your fingers. Most people know that keeping a trained bear or tiger requires extreme care. But people get quite careless about keeping pit bulls or orcas. Some Christian sects risk their children’s lives by forcing them to handle poisonous snakes. What is the error these people make? They look at the usual docile behaviour and ignore the potential for violent behaviour. If a creature has fangs, the fangs are there for a reason. It is only a matter of the right constellation of circumstances and they will use them. The same is true for humans who carry knives, guns or nuclear weapons.

The government of Alberta and the developers of the Alberta Tar Sands have so harmed the people of Fort Chipewyan, I think they would be justified in assassinating or torturing anyone involved with the project.
