Marina company’s reasons show true colours

To the Editor,

Re: Environment review, economy cited for marina deal failure, April 18.

I find great comfort in the fact that the Pacific Northwest Marina Group decided to pull out of controlling our port and boat basin.

For the company to give its honest reason of having challenges with environmental impact and assessments that would have taken too long to get completed shows the true colour of the corporation’s intent. Money, money and more money.

It would not care one cent about the ecosystems within our waterways. It would all be about being able to do what it wants when it wants, make some money and then disappear.

Similar to what Enbridge will do when their pipelines and tankers  spew petroleum products into the pristine ecosystems and fisheries in the waterways by Kitimat.

We elect government officials to look out for our best interests, not sell our country off piece by piece to foreign investments that only lead to consumption and destruction of the ecosystems that we all rely on to live.
