Pipelines are bad projects

Re: Kieran Report – Endless dithering is not an option, June 14 – 20

Mr. Kieran’s take on Christy Clark’s “endless dithering” misses the point. The pipelines are, first and foremost, incredibly bad projects for Canada, for B.C., and for the environment.  There are no environmental assessments for Northern Gateway that give it a recommendation. It is an insult to our First Nations peoples whose land and lifestyle it will destroy. It is insane to allow the pipeline oil spills into our rivers and tanker wrecks along our coastline knowing the devastating effects on our fishing industry, tourism industry and quality of life that this project promises. Most spills are simply never cleaned up. Christy Clark’s dithering on this issue is one of the few bright marks of her administration.
