This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes from a girl named Ta’Kaiya Blaney of British Columbia. Ta-Kaiya wrote an original song in protest of a plan to build a new trans-Canadian pipeline. This pipeline would cause hundreds of oil supertankers to enter the Great Bear Rainforest each year, which is a big danger for the environment.
“Oil pipelines and tankers will give people jobs, but if there is an oil spill like the [BP spill] in the Gulf of Mexico, that will take other people’s jobs and the wildlife will die.”
