True wealth can’t be found in oil

One Vancouver newspaper says our elected city officials have no right to ban tarsands traffic through the lower mainland because our wealth depends on resource extraction.

While the wealth of newspapers do indeed depend on resource extraction, the true wealth of our cities is the people who live here.

As Canadians we have the right and duty to object when others threaten our way of life with unnecessary and polluting carbon production.

No more pipelines in B.C. and no tankers on our coast.
