St. Lambert – In the Cross-Hairs

While you may never have heard of St. Lambert, there is something you should know about it. The city of St. Lambert is a small one, merely 150 years old, counting a population of just over twenty thousand. With an area of only three square miles, it is disproportionately affluent, anglophone, aged, and religious. It is also, arguably the most important city in North America; or it could turn out to be.

“In the 1950s, the development of Saint-Lambert was enhanced with the building of the St. Lambert Locks in the St. Lawrence Seaway, to bypass the smaller Lachine Canal, and this became the most easterly lock in the Seaway.”

St. Lambert is also an important rail hub.

“Via Rail serves Saint-Lambert railway station with its daily Montreal-Quebec City, Montreal-Gaspé and Montreal-Halifax trains.

Amtrak, the U.S. national passenger rail system, also provides daily service to Saint-Lambert railway station, operating its Adirondack in both directions between Montreal and New York City, using the Victoria Bridge.”

A great many cities in the interior of the continent depend upon the seaway for the transport of goods and commodities. Toronto, Buffalo, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Chicago are all dependant on imports being shipped through the seaway to the Great Lakes. Being the easternmost point in the seaway, St. Lambert is the entry point and the most important link in the supply chain to the interior of the continent.

“The Great Lakes region receives special attention because the provinces and states in it constitute the fourth largest economy in the world…” http://www.canadiansailings.ca/?p=8857

Starkly, one well-positioned nuclear bomb could put a crater where St. Lambert is and severely hinder the north american supply line to the heartland. The Russians know it, but do the residents of St. Lambert know it? The safe zone for an ICBM strike is about twenty kilometers which means that Montreal and most of the South Shore would become nothing more than a fond memory. Knowing this, one wonders how many of the residents there would endorse antagonizing the Russians over the crisis in the Ukraine.

Update – This permalink will simulate the effects of a 1 megaton nuclear device exploding on the ground at the locks in St. Lambert.

Conspi-Racist

People with wealth, power, and influence say many things. Of those things, some seem to come up more often than others, namely:

1- Overpopulation is our biggest problem

2- CO2 is pollution, and climate change is bad

3- GMO’s are safe and can feed more people

4- Vaccines will make you healthy

5- Wireless radiation isn’t harmful

6- Nuclear energy is green energy

7- There are no conspiracies

8- Did I mention overpopulation?

Based on the initial premise that there are too many people on the planet; do you think that the powers that be would suggest doing anything which would make that problem worse? Why implement plans that make the biggest problem bigger? So the rest of the things on that list should not help increase the population, should they? In fact, all of those things will actually reduce the population, as they should; given that over-population is such a problem.

It would be akin to saying that despite the fact that nuclear weapons are the biggest threat to mankind and must be eradicated, we need more nuclear weapons to keep us safe. No, wait, that’s a bad example. It would be like saying that we must find a cure for cancer, and then spend most of the money to research treatment options. Scratch that, another bad example. Like self-regulating financial industries… no. Like we need more debt to pay our debts… no. Oh, like more security means less freedom… no, no, no. Ok, so these aren’t the best examples; but you get the gist, right?

Well, the truth of the matter is that the narratives are becoming hopelessly intertwined.
