The best Amazon Prime Day deals for home cooks

Upgrading kitchen appliances and tools can sometimes cost an absolute fortune. After all, who can justify spending an arm and a leg on a new blender, when the one you already have works…adequately. How can you even consider buying a stand mixer, when you’ve been making cakes and cookies perfectly…

Amazon Prime Day 2018: all the best deals to watch out for

Amazon Prime Day 2018 kicks off 16th July, 12pm – 17th July, midnight. (Credit cards at the ready…)

Forget Amazon Black Friday and mark your calendars – Amazon Prime Day 2018 is (almost) upon us. The massive online e-tailer will be announcing a flood of fantastic deals and we’re going to be keeping tabs on all the best Prime Day bargains as they come in. Watch this space, we’ll be regularly updating it over the course of the two days.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day may as well be Christmas in July. For a day – well, 36 hours to be more exact – Amazon will be slashing its prices on everything from tech to fashion and you’ll want to jump on board. Over 100, 000 products are going to be on offer – including some of Amazon’s own products like the Alexa and Kindle – so now’s the time to buy if they’ve been collecting dust in your wish list. New deals will be rolled out as often as every five minutes

It’s the fourth year the event’s been running and people have been eating the deals up. We’ll be focusing on the fab beauty and fashion deals, but if you’re after some cracking tech deals, then check out our sister site Trusted Reviews for more Amazon Prime Day 2018 deals.

How does Amazon Prime Day work?

So there’s a slight catch here – only people who are Amazon Prime members will be able to snag the deals. However, the e-tailer is offering a 30 day trial so you can just sign up for a free month-long Amazon Prime membership for the shopping festivities.

Beyond access to Amazon Prime day, members also bumped up to a higher priority delivery tier with free same- and one-day delivery services. You’ll also get access to all the shows on Amazon Prime Video (bring on those American Gods and Mozart in the Jungle binges), as well as Prime Reading and Prime Music as well. You’ll also be able to get half an hour’s worth of early access to any of their Amazon Lightning Deals, meaning you’ll get to beat the crowd to amazing bargains before they sell out.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

While last year, Amazon Prime Day ran for 30 hours, this year it’s been extended to a full 36 hours, starting at midday on Monday 16th July and ending at midnight on Tuesday 17th July.

What deals can we expect from Amazon Prime Day?

With literally thousands of deals across Amazon’s broad selection, there’s going to be two types of bargains: Deals of the Day and Lightning Deals.

Amazon Deals of the Day

These are the deals that will run for the full 36 hours, across 20 of the most shopped for categories in Amazon.

Amazon Lightning Deals

While Amazon usually does Lightning Deals, on this very special day they’ll be rolling them out as often as every five minutes. To add pressure, these deals will come with a little timer and availability bar showing how many are left in stock. Here’s a top tip: if you put a Lightning Deal into your shopping cart, be sure to buy it within 15 minutes! After that, Amazon will automatically eject the item and you’ll have to fight the rest of the crowd for it again.

If you’ve missed out on anything, you can always try your luck by joining a waitlist on a product – in case they restock, or somebody changes their mind about a big purchase. Another benefit of having a Prime membership on this hallowed day is that you’ll be able to receive your products in as short a time as one hour – but don’t worry if you don’t want that big TV sent to the office, you can turn on No-Rush Delivery and it’ll stagger your delivery period.

We’ll be collecting all the best deals across fashion, home, tech and more, so you don’t have to go digging through hundreds of thousands of deals for the best ones. If you’re after tech deals, be sure to check out our sister site Trusted Reviews, as they’ll be rounding up the very best Amazon Prime Day deals.

Amazon Prime Day Beauty Deals

Amazon Prime Day Fashion Deals

Amazon Prime Day Tech Deals

Amazon Prime Day Homeware Deals

Amazon Prime Day runs from midday on Monday 16th July and will run for 36 hours, ending at midnight on Tuesday 17th July. However some of the deals above are flash deals, so you’ll have to keep an eye on when certain offers expire.

Eat your heart out, Black Friday.

Prime Day vs. Black Friday: When You’ll Really Get the Best Deals on Amazon


Amazon Prime Day may feel like a summertime Black Friday shopping event. But how do the prices compare?

While you (OK, we) were getting distracted by all the weird stuff that gets discounted on Prime Day, you’d better believe that people were using data to get into the weeds for this big event.

Best Black Friday, a website that covers prices and deals leading up to the holiday season, has analyzed Prime Day pricing against Amazon’s Black Friday deals since Prime Day debuted in 2015.

The site found that last year, 76% of Prime Day prices were better than they were on Black Friday. Just under 6% of prices were tied on Black Friday and Prime Day.

This year, the team expects at least 70% of Prime Day prices to be better than Amazon’s 2017 Black Friday prices.

But are those deals worth it? It depends on what’s on your shopping list.

What to Scoop Up — or Skip — on Prime Day

“We have found that Prime Day discounts on Amazon devices are usually cheaper [than], or at least equal to, Black Friday,” Best Black Friday co-owner Eric Jones said. “Which is great news for anyone in the market looking to buy a new Echo Dot or Kindle.”

Better yet, these items will be discounted throughout the event, so you won’t have to wait around for a deal once Prime Day starts.

What about non-Amazon electronics? These products often get a bad rap when they’re heavily discounted on shopping holidays.

“In the end, Prime Day is similar to Black Friday in the fact [that] the absolute cheapest, limited-quantity doorbuster deals on electronics are not going to be the best of the best,” Jones said. “Instead of going for the cheapest possible TV deals, we usually recommend spending $ 50 to $ 100 more on the particular size that you are targeting to get a higher quality set that is still available for a great price.”

Jones said that while Amazon has been allowing a few pricing sneak peeks for app shoppers, many Prime Day deals won’t be revealed until a day or two before Prime Day begins.

Jones’ team hasn’t noticed a timing pattern that would indicate when Amazon will mark down various shopping categories during Prime Day, he said. He recommends downloading the Amazon app and enabling alerts for when prices drop on items you’re eyeing.

Best Black Friday plans to live-blog the entire 36-hour event.

How to Score Even Bigger Savings When You Shop Amazon Prime Day Sales


Amazon has confirmed the rumors and announced its fourth annual Prime Day celebration will happen on July 16 and July 17. The site promises more than 1 million deals over a 36-hour period — its longest yet — for Prime customers in 17 countries.

This year, along with discounts on its popular home electronics like Echo, expect Amazon to promote its house brands. AmazonBasics luggage is already on the sale’s lineup, as is furniture from Amazon’s Rivet line.

Much of Amazon’s food, vitamin, baby and beauty lines are already 30% off for Prime members in advance of the event.

Amazon will launch products that are new to Prime for a limited time, with some big names like Coleman, Britax and Tarte cosmetics coming to the site with exclusive offers.

Deals will start at noon on the West Coast and 3 p.m. on the East Coast on Monday, July 16, and extend through the end of the day (Pacific Standard Time) on July 17.

What to Expect From 2018 Amazon Prime Day Deals

This year, Amazon will offer the following to Prime members:

  • Use your Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card at Whole Foods and Whole Foods Market 365 stores on Prime Day to get 10% back on your purchases up to $ 400. This offer is valid from July 14 to July 17. That’s double what you can normally get back on Whole Foods purchases with the Amazon Prime credit card.
  • Whole Foods shoppers will also find in-store deals on Prime Day.
  • Install Amazon Assistant to get $ 5 off a Prime Day order of $ 25 or more. After installing the browser extension, shop by clicking through the browser icon. You can do this now to get your credit, but you must redeem it on physical products before July 23. Your discount will show at checkout.
  • Search for items with camera features in the Amazon app to get deals on select items. This one is tricky: You have to try the AR view, camera search, bar code scanner or package X-ray features within the app during Prime Day to unlock deals — and those deals will change every six hours.
  • First-time customers can get up to $ 20 off Prime Now delivery. Use code 20PRIMEDAY to get $ 10 off your first two orders of Amazon or Whole Foods products. The offer expires at the end of the day on July 17, and your discount expires on July 31. You must spend at least $ 10.01 to redeem your discount, and delivery fees (based on order size) still apply.
  • New Amazon Music Unlimited users can get four months of on-demand music for 99 cents.
  • New Kindle Unlimited subscribers can access three months of the service for 99 cents. Buy a Kindle book before Prime Day to get a $ 10 credit to use during the event on ebooks, print books or Audible titles.

How to Keep Calm While You Get Your Prime Day on

Not an Amazon Prime member? Sign up for a free 30-day trial membership now to get access to all the Amazon Prime Day deals. Just remember to mark your calendar to cancel your membership after the big event if you don’t want to pay $ 119 per year for the two-day shipping service.

It’s important to go into Prime Day without grand plans for spending (and saving). While Amazon is going to discount a ton of prices, it doesn’t mean you need those items right now. You should still do your research and comparison shopping before the big day.

Amazon is offering one perk to help you plan ahead: Starting a week prior to Prime Day, you can add items to your list in the Amazon app to get a sneak peek at their sale prices. Do this to plan purchases ahead of time and resist additional impulse buys on Prime Day.

Whole Foods discounts for Amazon Prime members coming this summer

Amazon.com Inc and Whole Foods Market are making a surgical strike in the already brutal grocery price war. On Wednesday, Whole Foods debuted a much-anticipated loyalty program that offers special discounts to Prime customers, including 10 percent off hundreds of sale items and rotating weekly specials such as $ 10 per pound off wild-caught halibut steaks….

SPECIAL SHOE DISCOUNT UPDATE:

Amazon Prime Members Are Getting New Discounts at Whole Foods

Amazon is trying to give its Prime members more reasons to shop at Whole Foods.

The company announced on Wednesday that it’s rolling out additional deals and discounts for members of its subscription service at the high-end grocer, which it acquired last year. Prime members will get an extra 10% off the hundreds of items already on sale throughout the store, and the company will offer a deep discount every week on best-selling items.

“That’s significant,” Whole Foods CEO John Mackey told Fortune. “What we’ve seen is when we do special deals for Prime members, we get a lot of traffic.”

The company is launching the new benefits in Florida on Wednesday–$ 10 a pound off on halibut, $ 2 off organic strawberries, for example–and will roll out the program nationally this summer. Prime members will receive these discounts by scanning a Whole Foods app at checkout.

Amazon has been implementing perks for its Prime members in Whole Foods since it acquired the grocery chain over the summer. The moves are, in part, meant to integrate the two companies and further immerse shoppers within the Prime ecosystem. Amazon has launched free two-hour delivery from Whole Foods through its Prime Now service in 10 cities, has Amazon lockers for package pick up at Whole Foods, and is selling Amazon products in stores.

The price cuts are part of effort to help Whole Foods shake its reputation as an expensive place to shop. “We’re going to to become increasingly more price competitive,” says Mackey. “That’s something that’s been a long-time dream of mine. Our merger with Amazon is helping to make that a reality.”

Mackey notes that it’s only been nine months since the acquisition and says the two companies are just now beginning to innovate together.

Amazon Is Increasing the Cost of Prime for the First Time in Four Years


It all started in 2005 with free two-day shipping.

Since then, Amazon Prime has evolved into the preeminent paid subscription service, with over 100 million members getting access to popular TV series, movies and music, select free Kindle books and free shipping that now includes two-hour delivery.

Prime is one of those things that people make fit into their budgets because it’s a good deal. But now you might have to give up a trip to The Sizzler to afford the luxury.

Starting May 11, Amazon is increasing the price of Prime membership from $ 99 per year to $ 119.

Prime renewals will follow the price increase beginning June 16.

Regular and student monthly memberships will continue to be $ 12.99 and $ 6.49 per month, respectively. The annual student membership will increase to $ 59 per year.

No change has been announced to increase the price on discounted memberships for Medicaid recipients.

It’s been four years since Prime’s last $ 20 price hike from $ 79, shortly after which Amazon introduced Prime Music.

What’s to come for Amazon Prime members is yet to be fully revealed but there are a few things we know.

Whole Foods is eliminating its rewards program beginning May 1 in favor of a program integrated with Prime. And Amazon has acquired rights to stream two years of the NFL’s Thursday Night Football games for a cool $ 130 million – a perk that will only be available to Prime members.

If you’re not a Prime member and won’t be ready to pull the trigger before May 11, you can still ask your mom for a digital gift card for a year of Prime and pay her $ 99 back later.

A Review of Amazon Prime Wardrobe

review of Amazon Prime WardrobeCurious about Amazon Prime Wardrobe, their new try-before-you-buy shopping option? Kate just tried it, so I asked her to write about her shopping experience for us… – Kat

Now that Amazon is expanding its try-before-you-buy feature to more customers, we thought it’d be a great time to share a review of Amazon Prime Wardrobe. Last summer, when Amazon originally announced Prime Wardrobe (presumably created to compete with Stitch Fix, Trunk Club, and so on), it wasn’t available to all Prime members — and it still isn’t.  Currently, the FAQ says, “Prime Wardrobe is currently available by invitation to Prime members. Prime members can request an invitation at amazon.com/pw-learnmore.” I never requested it, so I guess I just got lucky (although it could be because I’m a very frequent Prime user).

Psst: Regarding online shopping in general, we’ve also talked about how to get your money back on returned online purchases, the best online shopping apps for deals and more, and had a great discussion with readers on their favorite online shopping destinations.

Here’s my review of Amazon Prime Wardrobe:

 

review of Amazon Prime WardrobeI was shopping for bras on Amazon about a week ago when I happened to see a mention of Prime Wardrobe, which allows you to try on clothes, shoes, bags, and jewelry at home for 7 days without paying anything up front. (The service is available for men’s, women’s, and kids’ items.) The whole Prime Wardrobe process was very easy, but that wasn’t a huge surprise, considering it’s Amazon. Here are the basics:

  • Only certain items are available through Prime Wardrobe. (You can pick it as an option when you do a search.)
  • You can try 3–8 items for 7 days, and you pay nothing when you order.
  • You don’t get 2-day Prime shipping — it may take several days to get your order.
  • You can keep anything you want from your order, and you must send the rest back within the 7-day period. If you keep more than $ 200 worth, you get a special $ 20 launch discount.
  • If you don’t return your items within 7 days (using the original envelope/box and the included return label), you’ll be automatically charged for everything. (If you are charged for something you don’t want, you can still return it under the terms of the Amazon Fashion 30 day return policy.)

I figured that trying various bras would be a particularly good way to use the service, especially because I had recently ordered a couple of them individually and then returned them to Amazon (through free returns) when they didn’t fit. On April 13, I ordered eight bras in various styles and sizes. The checkout process was just like the regular one, although I had to agree to the Prime Wardrobe terms and conditions and “pay” $ 0.00 (rather than $ 400+). I was later charged a temporary fee of $ 1 to verify the card. The shipping estimate was 4–6 days (or possibly 5–7 — I can’t remember), but I received the items on April 16, when I also got an email confirming the try-on period. I logged into my account to see “Try at home until Mon, April 23” and “7 days left.” Amazon says they send reminders, too.

Well, surprise, surprise — none of the eight bras fit (dressing-room deja vu!), so I went online the next day and clicked “return” for each item (instead of “buy”). I received a confirmation email, used the original resealable bag and the return label provided, and then dropped off the package at UPS on April 20. As of April 21, my order says “return pending,” so as long as it goes through smoothly and I don’t get charged more than $ 400 for a bunch of Wacoal bras I no longer have, I would definitely use Prime Wardrobe again. (In addition to bras, I think it would be especially good for jeans!)

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, do you have access to Prime Wardrobe yet? If you’ve used it, what did you order, and how did it go? If  Prime Wardrobe isn’t an option for you yet, what sorts of things do you think you’ll use it for? When you’re shopping online in general, do you usually order two or more sizes of certain things and plan on returning the rest, rather than one size/item at a time?

Amazon finally reveals how many Prime users it has

Finally, Amazon is spilling the beans on Prime membership.

The online retailer has been famously opaque about how many of its users pay for Prime, its annual subscription service. Now, in a letter to shareholders, CEO Jeff Bezos has revealed that Amazon has more than 100 million paid Prime members. Not too shabby, Jeff.

For the past 13 years, Amazon customers willing to pay $ 99 annually have received free two-day shipping, access to its Prime streaming library of film and TV, and other “deals and discounts,” according to Amazon. Read more…

Amazon Extends $5.99 Prime to Medicaid Recipients. Here’s How to Qualify


Amazon has always given students a sweet deal on Prime. Last year, Amazon went a step further and knocked its Prime subscription price down to $ 5.99 per month for anyone with an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card.

This week, Amazon announced it will extend its $ 5.99-per-month Amazon Prime service to Medicaid recipients.

Amazon Prime benefits include movie, TV show and music streaming; free two-day shipping; and access to a variety of newspapers and books.

“We hope to make Prime even more accessible. The combination of shipping, shopping and entertainment provide a tremendous amount of value to members,” said Cem Sibay, vice president of Amazon Prime, in a news release.

It’s a pretty sweet deal, as long as you can avoid the notorious temptation of online impulse shopping.

Sign Up for the Amazon Prime Discount With Your Medicaid Card

Head to the website and click “Medicaid.” Amazon will send a code to your email or cell phone — your choice — in a couple of minutes. Enter the six-digit code into the box, and select continue.

You’ll need to upload an image of your Medicaid card, select the issuing state, then check the box to confirm that your Medicaid card is valid. Once your card is confirmed, you can sign up for Prime as usual.

You’ll need to requalify every 12 months, and subscribers can enjoy this discounted rate for a total of 48 months.

Is Amazon Prime worth it for you? Take this quiz to find out!

Amazon Prime costs $ 99 a year, but is it really worth it? That’s a question many people will ask themselves before deciding to renew their membership — or sign up for one in the first place.

I’ve been thinking a lot about whether that $ 99 is money well spent or if I should cancel my membership.

So, I went through Amazon’s list of Prime benefits (free two-day shipping, streaming of movies and TV shows, the ability to borrow books, etc.) and created a 12-question quiz for myself.

I wanted to share the quiz with you in case you’re also struggling to determine whether Prime is worth it or not.

For some people, the shipping benefits alone make Prime a good value. “Amazon addicts” don’t need this quiz. It’s more of a tool for people who are on the fence about their membership.

Are you ready to find out if you’re getting your money’s worth with Amazon Prime? Let’s get to the quiz…

Amazon prime movies about traveling

ADVERTISEMENT


The best movies are the ones that make us long for other lives and embrace the journeys of characters we’ve only just met. When you sit down to watch a movie, you are getting ready to have an experience, and this is something that depends largely on the type of movie you watch. There are so many different genres of film, and they appeal to us for a variety of different reasons.

Movies about traveling always give us a sense of excitement, and a spirit of adventure. They take us to faraway places and other worlds and show us the beauty of travel. Some are about the main character traveling and going through a journey of self-discovery, while others are about a quest to achieve or accomplish something. Amazon Prime brings more and more of these movies direct to our living rooms – and here are some of the best movies on there about traveling.

Into the Wild (2007)

Based on a true story, Into the Wild is an epic adventure movie helmed by Sean Penn. It follows the adventures of Christopher McCandless, a spoilt rich kid who changes his name to Alexander Supertramp, sheds all his worldly possessions, and heads for the wilds of Alaska, living off nothing but the land. The movie shows some of the amazing scenery that can be found in the United States. It documents Alex’s journey through the US and his perils with living off the land and being at one with nature. The movie is wonderfully filmed and has an incredible soundtrack – well worth a watch.

Up in the Air (2009)

This movie follows George Clooney who plays a corporate downsizer, and his experiences with work, as well as the lonely isolation of his constant travels. The movie co-stars Anna Kendrick, and Danny McBride. The movie was released to critical acclaim and received 6 Academy Award nominations. The movie eloquently captures the mundanity, but also the freedom that can be found with a life of travel. This is definitely a movie you should check out, but, it’s also going to make you want to get on a plane and go traveling.

Interstellar (2014)

It’s a movie about travel, but not as you know it. Chris Nolan’s magnum opus revolves around space travel, specifically time and space, as astronauts travel through a wormhole to try to find a new planet for mankind. If you’ve not seen Interstellar, you need to get it on your watch list. But, make sure you can give it your full attention because the movie is pretty complex in places. That being said, it’s one of the most intelligent and visually stimulating movies you’ll see.

Road Trip (2000)

At the more comedic side of the spectrum, we have Road Trip, a college road movie directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover). The movie follows Josh and his roommates as they take a trip to his girlfriend’s college after he accidentally mails her a VHS of him with another girl. Yes it’s crass, and a little crude, but it’s also a lot of fun, and the characters all wind up finding out a thing or two about themselves in the process.

These are a few of the best flicks on Amazon Prime that you can watch about traveling. They all contain some stunning visuals, with an important moral message. Traveling is always fun, and a great way of seeing the world, or your home country. And, when you watch movies about travel you get to experience that adventure alongside other people as well.

Support in childhood makes midlife the prime time of life

There is a tendency to highlight the importance of cognitive achievements and the family’s socioeconomic background for people’s success in the future, but this study shows that children’s self-regulation, which comprises children’s social skills and processing of emotions, directs the future development in a profound way in different domains of life. Strong self-regulation promotes success in education and work, the intimate relationship, health behavior, integration into society and the development of a flexible personality.

Subscribe to Pampers on Prime Day and help NICU babies too!

Did you know that 1 in 10 babies in the United States will be born prematurely this year? The March of Dimes strives for a world in which every baby has a fair chance of surviving and thriving, yet this is not the reality for many moms and babies.

The scariest moment in my life was when my doctor told me I was dilated to 3 centimeters. I immediately burst into tears. What would normally thrill parents-to-be gave me an enormous sense of dread. I was just shy of 31 weeks pregnant, and I was terrified.

I immediately thought of all the things I had been doing that week. It was spring break and my toddler and I had been adventuring around. Had I done too much? Had I somehow caused this? What would happen if they couldn’t stop the labor? Was my baby going to be healthy? I had so many scary questions that the joy of her coming birth was overshadowed by fear.

Pampers Prime Day

They held off my labor for 4 days and my daughter was born at 31 weeks and 2 days. We received permission for her to stay at the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the same hospital as me, instead of being airlifted to another hospital downtown. The staff in the NICU was amazing — they educated me and answered every question I had. Having been a pediatric nurse for over a decade, it didn’t prepare me for these moments and questions.

We spent 5 weeks in the NICU. The nursing staff and doctors were amazed at the progress our little girl made, and how quickly she achieved her milestones. She has been home for 2 months now and is growing at an unbelievable rate. She continues to amaze us every day. I know that for many families, this simple and happy ending isn’t the case.

Pampers Prime Day

Each year in the United States, more than 380,000 babies are born too soon — that’s one baby every two seconds. And each year more than 120,000 babies are born with a birth defect. Some are so small they could fit in the palm of your hand, and others face lifelong health complications.

You may have heard of the March of Dimes March for Babies fundraising walk events. With the money raised, and other campaigns and initiatives, they are able to support more than 75,000 families with a baby born preterm or very sick, through their NICU Family Support® program. The March of Dimes has also invested $ 19.3 million in research — in just one year — to help wipe out premature birth and birth defects.

Pampers Prime Day

July 11 is Amazon Prime Day. You may know it as a day of amazing online deals. I’ll be stocking up on my favorite items and looking for great deals too. The first thing on my list is diapers. Pampers is the diaper of choice in our house and I am pleased to say that when you purchase a Pampers subscription on Prime Day, Pampers will donate $ 10 to the March of Dimes to support families with babies in the NICU.

Together we can reach our goal of welcoming home 10,000 babies*.

I hope every baby gets the same fighting chance that my little girl got.

*Pampers will donate up to $ 160,000. The March of Dimes does not endorse specific brands or products.

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Prime Minister’s Office And ‘Rock Star’ Neil Young Battle Over Oilsands

After taking Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the federal government to task yesterday during a Toronto press conference and concert last night, Neil Young received an official reply from the Prime Minister’s Office earlier today regarding his comments on the Alberta oilsands development.

A press release from the PMO defended the government’s position stating it was a fundamental part of Canada’s economy. The statement also seemingly took a shot at Young in the process.

“Even the lifestyle of a rock star relies, to some degree, on the resources developed by thousands of hard-working Canadians every day,” Jason MacDonald said in a statement. “Our government recognizes the importance of developing resources responsibly and sustainably and we will continue to ensure that Canada’s environmental laws and regulations are rigorous.”

Young was quick to respond to the PMO’s statement, issuing a statement of his own through his label Warner Music.

“If rock stars need oil is an official response, how does that affect the treaties Mr. Harper’s government of Canada is breaking,” Young wrote. “Of course, rock stars don’t need oil. I drove my electric car from California to the Tar sands and on to Washington DC without using any oil at all and I’m a rock star.”

The singer — who said the issue is “with the government breaking treaties with the First Nation and plundering the natural resources the First Nation has rights to under the treaties” — stated he and the First Nations people “have respect for all working people” but were concerned with “the job they are working on.”

“They are digging a hole that our grandchildren will have great trouble digging their way out of,” Young wrote. “There are better jobs to be developing, with clean energy source industries to help make the world a safer place for our grandchildren.” He also noted the amount of CO2 being created by every gallon of gasoline being produced from the oil sands, reportedly three times as much CO2 as the cleanest oil sources.

“As a Canadian citizen, I am concerned that this government is not acting within the advice of science,” the singer said. “When people say one thing and do another, it is hypocrisy. Our Canadian environmental laws don’t matter if they are broken.”

In an interview with CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi yesterday which ran on Q this morning, Young was quick to respond to some of the backlash he received in Alberta following comments last year comparing Fort McMurray to Hiroshima. One radio station even banned Young’s songs from their playlist while some politicians including Alberta Energy Minister Ken Hughes said the comments were offensive.

Story continues after slideshow

“I don’t even react to them, they don’t mean anything to me,” Young said in response to Hughes comments. “It’s senseless, a man in a position like that whose elected by the people of the province of Alberta should be able tell the difference between a metaphor and a direct quote. If he doesn’t understand that Fort Mac stands for the oilsands, then he doesn’t even know where he lives. That was a ridiculous thing to do.

“And as far as burning my [records], whatever they want to do with my records, I could care less,” Young added. “My records are still there, you can burn them and break them and you can do whatever you want with them but they will stand the test of time and still be there. So I’m not worried about that. Doesn’t bother me at all. I say they missed the point.”

Young also said people should look at the motivation behind the development versus the motivation behind the First Nations people regarding the issue. During yesterday’s press conference, three seats remained empty with Nunavut MP Leona Aglukkaq. Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver and Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Bernard Valcourt invited to attend but absent.

“This is not a myth, this is true,” Young said. “You can either believe me and the First Nations people or you can believe the oil companies and the Canadian government. And you got to look at the motivation. Why would anybody say anything? Why would I say anything? And why would the First Nations people say anything if there wasn’t something wrong? Then look at the motivation of the Canadian government and the oil companies that they’re working with.”

Young’s benefit tour for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) Legal Defense Fund continues later this week with shows in Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary. Young’s interview with Ghomeshi will air on CBC’s The National Wednesday evening.
