Enough Doom and Gloom

Dear Editor,

I was saddened to read the article [about] Liberal MLA Ellis Ross, in the latest edition of the Terrace Standard (Another Nail In the Coffin, Nov. 30).

This isn’t the first article of negativity and biased opinion from Ellis Ross and this one has me fuming. Let’s recapture the turn of events leading to LNG proponents pulling out that are closer to the facts. Petronas, this is the mega project the Liberals threw everything but their lives on and mentioned in the news by Mr. Ross, blaming the NDP for pulling out. You are wrong sir! Petronas had the green light by your government and the Feds and if there was a concern for the NDP throwing a wrench into it, the Liberals would have rammed it through.

Bottom line is, this project pulled out for lack of market price. For the same reasons as the Douglas Channel LNG. This area needs sustainable renewable jobs. The Liberals have been shipping those renewable jobs out of the area in the form of millable logs and allowing big corporations to shut down the fishing industry in Prince Rupert.

Historically, the Terrace/Kitimat area has had its up and downs for a long time, but to play the blame game on the NDP for your short comings is pathetic. From a government that didn’t disclose a billion in debt with ICBC, it really is the pot calling the kettle black.

Roger Bennett,

Terrace, B.C.
