LETTER: It was no surprise

Very shortly, I will expect to hear that the BC Government announced how happy they are that Enbridge will meet with all of its demands.

Enbridge has been given the green light to pursue its plan to bid the pipeline.

What a surprise!

Very shortly, I will expect to hear that the BC Government announced how happy they are that Enbridge will meet with all of its demands for building the pipeline in our province.

Those people and organizations should realize that writing letters to their MLA, standing in front of constituency offices or the legislative building with placards, chanting and drumming their opposition, will get them nowhere nearer to their goal. It’s time they took more direct action.
