According to Food & Water Watch, a US-based advocacy group, two Canadian banks are among several wealthy financial institutions bankrolling the disastrous Dakota Access pipeline. That's right, it's the one causing grief and heartache for the Standing Rock Sioux Nation in North Dakota, going right through their traditional territory, desecrating sacred burial grounds and threatening to contaminate their precious river water. Apparently the Bank of Nova Scotia has loaned those behind the project some $100 million, the Royal Bank of Canada another 341 million, for a cool total of almost half-a-billion bucks. I've avoided these soulless devils like the plague for years and done my banking at Credit Unions. You?
