Letters: Say 'no' to pipelines

Co2 comes naturally but when you add to it, by burning oil, coal and natural gas it causes a lot of problems. The oceans, for one, are becoming acidic from it and the krill, a small shrimp the whales feed on, are dying. We have to stop adding to it and set an example.

So, why is our Premier Christy Clark going to sell oil and gas to the Chinese? The scientists say this is also the reason for all the terrible weather patterns in the world. But government doesn’t want to listen. Also these resources are Not renewable when they are gone, they are gone. Just think if there was no oil, where would we be? We have nothing to replace oil on the big scale.

I worry what we are leaving our children. On the east coast we import oil, now we are going to sell it on the west coast. The left hand doesn’t seem to know what the right hand is doing. Send it east not to China.

The Chinese say they have more oil under the China Sea than all of Canada. They will use our’s first. The oil fields in Alberta have been mostly sold to the Chinese, why? What part of “no” doesn’t the government understand?

Please write letters to the government, if we don’t then we can blame no one but ourselves. We don’t want an oil pipeline to Kitimat or a gas pipeline.

The scientists say that if one of these ships caught fire it could clear an area for miles where it blew up. They say it’s for jobs and money, well at what price?
