Disgusted by environment minister's 'callous indifference'

Dear editor,

I am disgusted by the environment minister's callous indifference to the environment in handing the pristine Jack Pine wetland area over to tar sands degradation.

Wetlands are vital to the life of all creatures — thousands of birds and animals will be threatened to say nothing of the future of the Canadian citizens that live in the area.

We are expected to believe the propaganda being thrown at us regarding the Enbridge Pipeline and how careful they are going to be! Do they think we are fools?

How much longer are we going to put up with this government and its arrogant disregard for the welfare of our country and its people?

Ann Andrews,

Black Creek
