With Site C, LNG Trudeau govt already breaking promises to First Nations, environment
While we have some cause celebrate here on Vancouver Island due to the BC Supreme Court response to the contaminated soil issue at Shawnigan Lake, there is little to celebrate elsewhere in the Province of BC.
Between the frackin’ and the floodin’, this BC government is determined to destroy whatever is left of our natural areas, our drinking water, our coastlines and our ability to do squat about any of it by intoning the sacred cows of jobs and profits at any and all costs..as if there were no other way..and the Feds? Well, hey, didn’t the Liberals win the election on promises to maintain decent environmental standards, to respect the rights of First Nations, etc? Didn’t they? Hmmmm..
Not much we can do about the Feds, now, and as for the Provincial government, especially here on the Island where we vote NDP almost as an automatic gesture of defiance, I’m preaching to the converted..the real job is to educate and win over the shruggers who either don’t care or think Clark is great..they are the real problems here in BC..year after year of struggling with these same old Socred clowns, and nothing changes…it’s going to take a Bernie Sanders-like revolution to change things here…and let’s not forget, Justin Kardashian isn’t doing much of anything to preserve our environment here in BC either..let’s keep his toes to the fire and help him to break the selfie habit and start thinking about what’s really important, supposedly what he got elected to do.
