Thanks for sharing this beautiful video. Living in BC, it is easy to take for granted that our beautiful nature will remain pristine for ever. The pipeline should definitely not happen and we must challenge our government and business community to not endanger our most precious resource and heritage.

Such a beautiful yet saddening video. Thanks for sharing.

This won’t necessarily turn out in a sad way. I think there is a good chance the people of British Columbia will refuse to allow this dangerous, carbon-spewing pipeline to be built.

The letter has been sent.

Milan June 21, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Fantastic!

It would also be much appreciated if you could send a letter to your B.C. MLA:

Naomi Yamamoto

Will do; did you get a copy of my letter? I copied it to you. Should i add anything to Ms. Yamamoto?

Milan June 21, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I got the CC.

Regarding Ms. Yamamoto, add anything that you think might make the issue salient to her. For instance, any concern you have seen about the project in the community, the possibility that the pipeline could prove an electoral liability for her party, etc.

Though now living in Ontario, I grew up in B.C. I was a deckhand on a collector boat in the salmon fishery in the 50s. I sailed the majestic channels of the Jonstone Straits, Knights Inlet and others. Absolutely matchless country and breathtaking in its beauty and treasure. I’m 82 now and I’ll lay down in the track of this pipeine outrage to stop it!

Milan October 22, 2012 at 12:18 pm

That’s encouraging to hear! Hopefully, the people of B.C. will make their voices heard and block this project.
