To the Editor,
Someone said that if there is a profit, the capitalists will sell a rope with which to be hanged.
However, their greed makes corporations ready to skin Mother Earth alive and totally destroy human habitat.
I came to Canada and British Columbia thinking that at least here nature is esteemed and the industrial pollution is a thing reserved for unfortunate places in other parts of the world. Not so. Building Northern Gateway pipeline and sailing gigantic oil tankers midst islands and rocks gives us a taste of the Third World treatment as an open invitation for environmental collapse.
This is an outrage to hear that the corporation involved will plan to handle disasters only after the project is done.
It is impossible that government and so-called representatives of citizens are totally deaf and blind when it comes to listening and working for those they should stand for.
Close the Northern Gateway before is too late.
