Omega Morgan's controversial mega load continues it's journey

A controversial oil sands delivery continues its trek today, despite a federal lawsuit intended to stall its travel through Idaho.

The Nez Perce Tribe and environmental group, Rivers United filed an 11th-hour lawsuit on Thursday.

They argued the U.S. Forest Service had the authority to halt the transport, and shield reserve lands from becoming a corridor for industry shipments.

An Omega Morgan mega load has been trailed by protesters nightly, since it began its trip north last Monday.

Dozens of activists have been arrested in just a few days.

The gigantic evaporator, bound for the Hangingstone site, is 225 feet long, 21 feet wide and weighs 644,000 pounds.

Athabasca Oil Corporation has said it will continue the shipment practice in spite of the controversy.
