Teachers' strike has environmental benefits

Dear Sir:

I would like to thank the teachers for the recent job action.

It is Bike to Work Week – my only mode of transportation every week.

As an environmentalist, trying to do my part for this planet, I would like to think that around the province this week there were a lot fewer cars on the road. Parents are not driving their children to and from school two to three times a day, no school buses moving – we must have saved some oil, gas and pollution.

Good job!

I salute the teachers and wish them every success with their ongoing struggles.

Vi Timmerman, Terrace, B.C.
