To the Editor,
Re: Canadians smart enough to build a safe pipeline, Letters, Oct. 25.
I am puzzled by people like Garry Bradford, Jim Corder, Tom Fletcher and David Black who think the economy is more important than breathing clean air and living in a non-toxic environment.
Man-made pollutants are irreversibly damaging to every living creature on Earth, not just the brainwashed, ignorant or greedy that are for these projects.
We only have one planet and one chance to make this right. My roses and mums are re-blooming in November – we can no longer ignore warming.
Canadians are smart enough to switch to sustainable energy with wind and solar power. We should be growing hemp in our backyards to use as a bridging fuel to put in our bio-diesel cars that are easily converted from gas engines thanks to the subsidies collected through the carbon tax as it was meant to be. There are lots of jobs associated with sustainable energy, so the employment issue is a moot point.
Germany is already harnessing the sun’s clean energy for its residents so there is no excuse for this toxic and earth contaminating greed. Anybody out there care about their offsprings’ future? There will not be a safe environment to reside in if action is not taken ASAP.
Wake up Canada, do not let apathy and greed ruin it for everybody. If the present regime (Stephen Harper) wanted to make clean money he would tax and legalize marijuana and all the safe byproducts made from this healing miracle plant.
