Rise up BC

To the editor:

Re: The Northern Gateway Pipeline Project

It is abominable that anyone in BC would ever consider Encana and residents of our neighbouring province to influence our current Liberal party.

It is abominable to even consider allowing Encana, a corporation with deplorable environment standards, to build a pipeline spanning the breadth of our wonderful province.

If we wanted tankers on our shores we have our own offshore oil. It would be a simple matter of employing FPSOs (Floating Production & Storage Offloading) and no pipelines over land. We have no use for this pipeline and contrary to the PMs encouragement; Canada has no need of this pipeline.

We need to register. We need to vote. We must shake this system to its core and find the party that will back our love for this province. Encana will do everything in its power to divide us.
