Open letter to Premier Christy Clark:
“O Canada! Our home and native land!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.”
Our national anthem should be changed in: “O Canada we are falling apart…”
I am very disappointed with my country. To develop the Jumbo Valley is a disaster for the Kootenays and the world. It’s time to stop corporations from wrecking our precious Jumbo Valley.
Jumbo Valley is public land that must be managed for the public trust. Canadian people should have a say in what is being done for Jumbo Valley.
Instead of allowing industrial development to go ahead just because it can, the Canadian people should be taking charge. The people should decide where to develop, at what pace, at what cost to the environment and for whose benefit the development will occur.
What happened to the democratic process?
The integrity of ecosystems comes first and foremost. Any economic activity can only be sustained by healthy functioning eco systems.
