Re: “The politics of oil pipelines,” Leader letters, July 26
Although B.C. Premier Christy Clark tries to appear neutral and open-minded in regards to the Northern Gateway oilsands project’s potentially detrimental environmental consequences, it’s fairly clear that she’s hoping for any piece of scraps thrown B.C.’s way by Alberta Premier Alison Redford.
This could lead to justification for Clark to allow the potential-mega-eco-disaster, twin-pipeline project to make its way through countless pristine and eco-sensitive regions of B.C., not to mention through to our northern coast and its waters that are at risk by giant oil-tankers.
But hopefully Redford’s foolish, tight-fistedness will give only more reason for B.C.ers and perhaps even our government – not to mention fuel for the eco-warriors’ fight against the project – to just say, to hell with the whole thing.
