I just sent a message to Premier Christy Clark recommending that the Government of British Columbia inform the Government of Canada that the province is now exercising its right, with 30 days notice, to subject the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project to an environmental assessment under the terms of the provincial Environmental Assessment Act.
Can you join me and send Premier Clark a message too?
Save our beautiful province and our pristine coastline from the devastation of oil spills...similar to the ruin of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico recently.
Thousands of jobs in our fisheries, eco-tourism and related industries are at risk!
The Enbridge pipeline project will provide less than 100 full time jobs for British Columbians. That's the truth...plain and simple!
The current Liberal Government is taking no stance on protecting our rights, our province and our future.

In May, I will be travelling to the interior, including south and north eastern B.C., to visit hydroelectric facilities, natural gas fields and mining operations. Reader assistance makes this possible.
The purpose is to deliver fact-based analyses of public issues. Resource industries spend millions of dollars each year to advance their positions but my work is independent of any special interests.
