As horrible as this event was, it did some good here in BC..this ugliness made it clear to all the naysayers bleating about jobs that NOTHING is worth even the chance of a spill..not to mention the fact that we need our Coast Guard and emergency stations, we need our lighthouses manned, we need some serious emergency response services here on the Coast, and the Feds have once again proven their contempt and disinterest for any Province besides Alberta or Ontario..
If anyone ever thought that the saving of a few bucks to shut down so many of our emergency services was a swell idea, that has gone …
If anyone still believed that this country, under the HarperCons, was capable of defending itself against a major bitumen disaster, that concept has floated away in an ugly oil slick..
Here in the people’s Republic of Vancouver Island, we vote for either the Greens or the NDP, with few exceptions, so it’s preaching to the converted to say that a vote for the Cons is a vote for self-annihilation…for the rest of BC, and hopefully, the country at large, this sort of thing should be a huge wake up call..let’s make sure that we have a conscientious voice in the Federal government next time around, and a push for the return, at the very least, of our coastal emergency services should be the minimum requirement for anyone who wants our votes.
The Cons love to admonish us for having the temerity to protest their stupidities, as if we were recalcitrant children…and this child is spoiling for a fight.
