To the Editor,

Re: Tar sands attack gets star treatment, B.C. Views, Oct. 25.

Once more we are subjected to the inane babbling of Tom Fletcher. Whenever he can’t get a point across with intelligent speech, he resorts to sarcasm.

He might not think an oil spill – whether on land or in the Pacific Ocean – will end life on Earth as we know it, but thousands of people who make their living on the sea or adjacent to it would disagree. It would certainly ruin their lives and the marine life which they depend on to survive.

Fletcher’s thoughts are so distorted, I can only assume he has become drawn in by the Harpies (not unlike the Moonies). His master speaks and he responds. Why should we believe Suncor founder Rick George and completely dismiss David Suzuki?

In light of the recent facts that the government and Canadian Food Inspection Agency cannot keep our food is safe, we will increasingly depend on our oceans.
