WTF?  I mean, seriously, what the frak?  We're talking about permits for 
moving large loads across state highways.  How is this in any way 
comparable to the civil rights movement?  If you care so gods damned 
much, get off your ass, go to wherever the headquarters of Imperial Oil 
is located, and protest the oil sands project.  Go save the world.  
There are better avenues for doing this than abusing the IDT permit process.

I guarantee that you restrain your actions due to legal concerns, too, 
else you'd have popped a cap in the ass of whoever is in charge of the 
oil sands project by now.
