Clark is an equal oppotunist enviro-destroyer

If you are willing and able to hack and destroy an ecosystem you will have B.C. Premier Christy Clark at your back

To the Editor,

No matter your race, ethnicity or corporation, if you are willing and able to hack and destroy an  ecosystems you will have Premier Christy Clark at your back.

At Fish Lake Clark is the champion of Taseko Mines. I watched her at a golf course in Qualicum Beach rally her followers with a pretty smile and unwavering support for Prosperity, a mine with the rare distinction of having been rejected by a federal environmental review.

Clark’s disregard for the needs of First Nations who protect lakes, fish, and cultural identity contrasts sharply with her support of First Nations whose concern for Mother Earth is overshadowed by their need for cash.

Near Nanoose, the logging rights to DL33—a red-listed public forest, a mature remnant of a Coast Douglas Fir—was handed over to the Shaw’naw’as First Nation.

Under these ciircumstances the Clark government drips with so much concern for First Nations that they are willing to overlook their solemn commitments as signatories to the International Convention on Biological Diversity and destroy yet another ecosystem, so that a native band can hire an outside logging contractor to supply TimberWest with these valuable trees that it couldn’t otherwise access.

Phil Carson,
