Oil use equals greed

Let me get this straight! Enbridge paid an opinion poll?

Dear Sir:

Let me get this straight! Enbridge paid an opinion poll?

Canada needs this Northern Gateway oil pipeline like a hole in the head.

Now Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives will label all opposition to this project as radicals.

All foreign money will be cut off they say and new laws will make it impossible for foreign money to come to any Canadian environmental aid for any recourse. I just wonder. A democracy that does a complete turn around to that of a socialistic police state.

Don’t get me wrong. I am all for  economic stability in our country, but do we have to sacrifice our pristine north? Have we progressed to the stage of parasitical venues?

Canada has become a cesspool of greed.

Gas pump prices will double and triple  before next year. If you own a car, you have to pay for this greed.

This is 2012! With all mankind’s alleged breakthroughs via technology and mechanics, why are we still dependent on fossil fuels?

I tell you why in two words – oil and greed.

Samuel H. Lincoln,

Prince Rupert, BC
