LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Modernize energy board

Bill needs to be put into place in order to keep climate commitments on track, says letter writer

To the editor,

Bill C-69 is a very important bill which needs to be put into place in order to keep Canada on track with climate commitments.

People have lost trust in the National Energy Board, and this government needs to step up, realize the urgency of switching to clean energy and respecting indigenous peoples’ voices, especially where building pipelines is concerned.

Robert Haist, Nanaimo
