No spin doctors, please

Dear Sir:

I note that our premier Christy Clark has visited Likely and has surveyed the area that is slowly being ruined by the Mount Polley mine tailings breach.

I note also that the premier and her colleagues had warned them for years of the potential disaster.

Why didn’t they enforce these warnings?

Were these warnings just a joke, not to be taken seriously by the mine operatives?

You have a lot of questions to answer, Ms. Clark.

Will you answer them from the perspective of the people from that beautiful area or will you go the politically correct route?

Earle Tupper,

Terrace, B.C.
