Thank you for coming to Revelstoke and hearing the concerns of your constituents this week. The community is grateful for your honesty when you spoke about the impact of Bill C-38 and the Enbridge pipeline. You heard and shared our concerns about both the procedural implementation and the detrimental effects (economic and environmental) of such a project and bill.
We know you have been under intense pressure to ‘tow the party line’ and retract these comments. However, it gave me hope that there is some voice of reason in our government. I hope you have the courage to represent your constituents on these important issues and stand up to what you seem to know is wrong. You are our voice on Parliament Hill and if you cannot be heard then I hope you do the right thing and separate yourself from Prime Minister Harper.
Many people in British Columbia stand behind you and there are many other Members of Parliament who will also stand with you if you make a stand against such an undemocratic situation. I implore you to allow your conscience to be voiced.
