This has been an interesting development to follow and I side with the Nez Perce Tribe regarding this issue. The Tar Sands Project in Alberta is to blame for this. The entire article is at the link.

Nez Perce Tribe: The 'Audacity' of Mega-Loads
'I'm appalled at Omega Morgan's lack of respect for the Nez Perce people, for a nationally treasured river corridor'


by George Prentice

UPDATE: Aug. 8, 2013

More than 100 protesters, including members of the Nez Perce Tribe, were out in the pre-dawn hours near Orofino today to greet a massive oil equipment rig inching across U.S. Highway 12 in north central Idaho. Witnesses said the protesters did their best to hold their ground until the Idaho State Police approached on foot, shouting, "Get off the road."
