To the editor,
It is important to keep letters of opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline in the local news. There are big, dirty, careless corporations entangled with some of our government that want to see this pipeline built.
There are lots of supporters especially in Alberta for this pipeline – and opposition as well, not all Alberta is on board. Here in British Columbia, we need to protect our environment as we have the most beautiful province in Canada. B.C.’s tourism industry is contributing a huge portion to Canada’s economy and if we risk our land which is priceless for a pipeline carrying destructive, corrosive bitumen, I feel we are all going to regret this. Our province is very valuable to this country, our wildlife is pure, strong and fragile, our children tomorrow need this land.
Please never be deterred to publish good, honest opposition letters. Honesty goes a long way and always wins.
Anne Marie Benoit, Nanaimo
