Letter writer 'nauseous' after reading feds plan

The Editor,

I felt so nauseous after reading the federal Conservatives’ Conservation Plan that I nearly regurgitated my breakfast. Fortunately, my nausea soon turned to temporary laughter with their attempt to make it sound even more incredible by offering a free fact sheet entitled “Conservative Leadership on the Environment.”

Anyone who actually believes any of this propaganda really ought to give their heads a shake. Here is a government that has demolished our environmental assessment legislation and is on a roll for removing protection of any species or habitat that stands in the way of pipeline projects.

We, as a country, are criticized and ridiculed worldwide for our dismal environmental and conservation performance and this is certainly not going to help improve our record.

This stomach-churning plan is nothing more than a serious waste of tax dollars that should come with a mandated health warning before reading it.

Jane Thomsing,

Port Coquitlam
