a lil somethin to do with why i oppose the enbridge northern gateway pipeline
It seems as if I hear about a new spill almost once a week. This is ridiculous — when will we stop putting our province’s environment at risk to better our economy?! THE LAND SUPPORTS US — people have survived off the plentiful resources of British Columbia for thousands of years BECAUSE of our care and attention to preserving it. On a small, local scale I OBJECT the proposed pipeline because I want to protect our First Nations people, our wildlife and aquatic life & industries. On a global scale I OBJECT the pipeline because it means we are further playing into the hands of major oil corporations who control so much because we rely on their UNRENEWABLE, UNSUSTAINABLE resource. Burning fossil fuels = gas = CO2 emissions = GLOBAL WARMING, as we all know already (yes, it is FACT, not fiction. Global warming is not a theory). See the cycle? British Columbia prides itself on being diverse, beautiful, tolerant and supposedly “green”. Why don’t we, for once, be that dynamic province we constantly boast about and BREAK THE CYCLE.
