Environment does not respect political boundaries

Dear Mr. Fletcher. Thank you for your informative editorial in the Wednesday, March 19 paper. It helped me on two fronts.

First, it clearly pointed out your single minded and uncompromising bias against any progressive initiative and for all things Conservative.

Second, it gave a rather detailed description of the dedication and commitment of a growing list of organizations to the betterment of our civilization and the responsible stewardship of the resources that make our country and our planet great.

You see sir, some of us get that the air we breathe and the water we drink does not respect political or arbitrary geographic boundaries.

The dire consequences to our beloved civilization of climate change and ocean acidification are real and they pose a threat to everything most of us hold dear.

I was delighted to read that such an impressive list of responsible organizations have chosen to work together here in B.C.

We are fortunate to be able to lead by example.
