Alaska - Canada: Tribe threatens development of oil-sands mines By ROBERT COLLIER - This town on a bend in the Mackenzie River has a general store and little else besides endless forests and distant blue mountains.

The tribe, the Deh Cho First Nation, is blocking an 800-mile pipeline that would pass through its lands carrying natural gas from the Arctic Ocean to the booming oil-sands mines of Alberta. The tribe says the money and development brought by the pipeline could destroy its culture while leaving little lasting economic benefit. - More...

Dale McFeatters: Another detour on the highway bill - Congress generally assigns low numbers to bills with high or symbolic importance. So you would think HR 3, the huge, six-year highway and mass-transit bill, would move expeditiously to passage. But you would be wrong.
