BC missing from pipeline hearings

Who is representing British Columbians’ interests in this environmental boondoggle?

Dear Sir:

I recently appeared before the Joint Review Process [JRP] panel when they held hearings in Terrace. Of the 50 other participants (including Mr. Robin Austin MLA) not one spoke in favour of the proposal.

More to the point, [this was shortly after Minister Oliver re-wrote the rules on environmental reviews, giving the federal Cabinet veto powers] there was a palpable frustration in the room at the cynicism of the JRP proceedings.

Let me simplify it for you. Number of provincial members of review panel: zero; number of provincial government/intervenors: zero; number of provincial veto-holders: zero.

Giving us, in fact, a total provincial JRP representation of one big, fat Zilch.

Given such stark arithmetic, and given that citizen-opponents to Enbridge’s admirable scheme are well known to be money-laundering traitorous scum, a simple question arises.

Who is representing British Columbians’ interests in this environmental boondoggle?

John How, Terrace, BC
