Province putting industry ahead of environment
To the Editor,
There are thousands of fracking wells in operation in northern B.C. On average less than 40 million litres of chemically treated water is used per well, leaving enough water in the lakes and rivers for workers to drown in prosperity.
Some citizens are ignorant that such industries are the backbone of a solid, sustainable funeral and florist industry growth. The tar sand extractions or fracking is as green and ecological as a grave digging is. The proposed blend of storms, tsunamis, gigantic tankers, and narrow inlet passages guarantees additional oil cleanup jobs for B.C. It is obvious that liquefied natural gas, fracking, pipelines, tankers, tar sands, or such are chiefly about job creating.
People ungrateful and opposing industry are just lazy characters bent to avoid any prosperity, progress, or jobs offered by well-meaning corporations.
Let’s ask ourselves honestly: What did a clean northern lake or river do for any corporations lately?
