Hi, Tom.

I am a Canadian and I love your show. Along with Rachel Maddow and Bill Moyers, you seem to provide a reasonably unbiased picture of the world that I can respect. However, as far as your coverage of the TransCanada Pipeline activity goes, I wonder if you realize that, according to their own web site information, "TC PipeLines, LP is a United States limited partnership with a long history of stable and growing cash distributions which has delivered value to its investors while maintaining a solid cash distribution coverage ratio." The site I am referring to is <www.tcpipelineslp.com>. When I first heard of the company and its antics, I was disturbed at the idea a Canadian company was creating such a crisis in the United States; and I looked it up. I just thought you might want to correct the impression that is left that Canada is using the United States as a dumping ground for pollution to line our own pockets. There might be some instances of that; but I don't think this is one of them.

Thanks for your ongoing work in the service of truth.

R. Jory

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
