(HAILEY) – Apparently the Megaload is on the move, again. The 450-ton Omega Morgan equipment shipment is headed for the Canadian tar sands oil development project. There have been protests reported in some areas concerning the shipment in general and the purpose for the equipment once it reaches Canada. The Boise Weekly reported recently that there is one group already planning protests in Idaho…a group called Wild Idaho Rising Tide…apparently planning demonstrations near Marsing, Mountain Home, Bellevue and Salmon.
