Pipe Alberta oil to the east

Why not follow Wildrose Alliance Party of Alberta leader Danielle Smith’s advice to export Alberta oil eastward?

Dear Editor:

What an admission!

Why else would Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield be working to lessen the environmental standards on fish habitat at this time?

They know there is an almost certain chance of environmental damage which would be caused by pipeline construction across northern B.C.

Fish and many other species could be severely affected by habitat damage.

Why not follow Wildrose Alliance Party of Alberta leader Danielle Smith’s advice to export Alberta oil eastward? Quebec and the Maritime provinces are corrently dependent on OPEC oil. The terrain is easier and refineries are in place.

Say “no” to the pipeline across northern B.C.

Say “no” to easing of environmental standards.

Say “no” by joining with the people who live in the North and do not want the pipeline.

And inform MP Dan Albas and PM Harper of your opposition to the proposed pipeline.
