Dear Editor:

Re: Guest Column endorsing the Kitimat Refinery.

Fair journalism was ignored by not warning your readers about the back story of the guest column endorsing the proposed Kitimat Refinery.

First, the man behind the project is David Black, the owner of Black Press and the Summerland Review. Although Mr. Black has every right to use his journal to promote his project, readers deserve to be made aware of this connection.

Second, the author of the “guest column” is Jim Shepard. He is the front man for Concerned Citizens for B.C., a group that promotes unrestrained free enterprise. CC4BC is responsible for the current attack ads on NDP leader Adrian Dix.

It is the obligation of the press to inform its readers of these links.
