Enbridge award termed cynical

Company sponsored "green award" for Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce

Dear Sir:

Enbridge and the Terrace & District Chamber of Commerce are to be congratulated for their outstanding cynicism in the presentation of the Business Excellence “Green Award”.

For Enbridge to sponsor the award and for the chamber to nominate Lakelse Watershed, SkeenaWild, and Urban Colour demonstrates the ostentatious complicity in obfuscation that is the hallmark of greenwash duplicity.

Enbridge and the chamber deserve scathing praise for unconscionably boosting the profile of the environment with stupendous equivocation on the definition of “green” itself.

Those not nominated are surely so green with either envy or sickness that strenuous sycophancy will pollute their quest for next year’s ludicrous honour.

Regardless, the nominees this year deserve all the sympathy and horror that such selection warrants.  Kudos!
