The Oilsands made me do it.

I don't care how you feel about the oil sands environmentally you have to draw the line when they are blamed for the poverty cycle. The only thing that causes a cycle of poverty is
a lack of skills be they managing money or the ability to get a job.

This article is blaming the oil sands for making people do drugs, staying poor and not getting proper housing. Why is it the oil sands and not this man's choice? He's thirty! Surely he is accountable for his choices?

The writer claims lump sums of money are more dangerous than salary spread out. I would say the most dangerous is no salary, no job. Blame is a sad but consistent part of our society today. Granted it's the writer's opinion and she is entitled to that.

Read article if you must.
