Reader sides with Suzuki over Wilks

Alistair Taylor agrees with David Suzuki over David Wilks on issue of Northern Gateway pipeline.

Dear Mr David Wilks, Kootenay-Columbia MP,

I just read your piece entitled “Northern Gateway” in the Opinion section of the Revelstoke Times Review (June 25, 2014). No doubt it also appears in many other newspapers and publications throughout your constituency. Fair enough, we are all “entitled” to our opinion. That’s the great thing about democracy. My opinion is that Stephen Harper’s Conservative government have lost sight of democracy.

In the same issue of the Revelstoke Times Review, still in the Opinion section, David Suzuki writes a piece, “Pipeline approval flies in the face of democracy and global warming”. That is the one that I will be reading to my children and their children’s children. (If I live long enough, that is..)

The recent Supreme Court decision on aboriginal title is to be applauded. Northern Gateway is a dead duck.

Yours respectfully,

Alistair Taylor, Revelstoke
