I am writing this letter as a concerned citizen and not as a radical un Canadian as Joe Oliver would have you believe.Just because I Am Opposed to this pipeline does not make me any less of a Canadian than you and your cohorts in Ottawa and Alberta.
I am against this because I actually have worked and lived in this pristine wilderness for 30 Odd years and plan on living out my years here without the threat of some disaster polluting my environment.
Its about time politicians realize they work for the people that elected them and not the big corporations that fill their coffers. This project should be decided by the people in this area that will be most affected when one of these pipes burst or a tanker runs aground, not the people of Canada.
Joni Mitchell said it best"They paved Paradise To put up a Parking Lot". I would also like to thank Kevin Bacon and Robert Redford for lending their faces and voices to cause that might wake up some people who otherwise would shrug the project off as progress.....I would like to add to your comments about outside interest funding the opposition to this with a question .
Who is funding the tar sands? Dare I say China......
Right on the money.....
