To the Editor,
There is a person from Nanaimo by the name of Robert St.-Amour who was on the Bill Good show recently with the announcement that he is planning to run a referendum to find out if the population of B.C. wants a pipeline running through the province.
Good rightly says that this is too soon since the environmental review on the project has yet to be conducted. Good is also asking if we should have yet another referendum.
What both of these people are dancing around with and fail to understand, is that Mr. St.-Amour is demonstrating that the people of B.C. no longer trust any of their governments to make the right decision.
When it comes to a major decision, the people of B.C. don’t trust the hired help and would rather decide for themselves.
This should be a fairly good clue to politicians of all kinds that major changes need to occur and the first breed of politician to clue in stands to make some large gains in the race to get elected.
