Letter- Enbridge protest shortsighted

The protest doesn’t deserve our applause.

Enbridge protest shortsighted

The protest doesn’t deserve our applause. An emphatic ‘NO’ only galvanizes an anti-prosperity attitude that does little to develop jobs within this sustainability crisis, and almost certainly ensures the collapse of this province’s economic system as it crossed critical thresholds, whose lasting and prolonged consequences are then hard to reverse.

Perhaps those who have so much time on their hands to spend clapping and carrying signs, should consider conditions for many struggling BCers and think up specific, achievable solutions to environmental problems they have helped create — besides protesting for the sake of protest.”
