Dear editor,

How can Canadians trust a government that pulls out of the Kyoto Agreement?

This is a very sad day for our country.

How can we turn this around so we can create a more sustainable economy for future generations? We need more sustainable employment in the valley.

The proposed coal mine near Fanny Bay is short-sighted and will only increase our global emissions, moving us further away from a sustainable future.

It is time we stop playing games with our planet and create laws that encourage sustainable economic growth. The world is watching.

Greg Wood,

Fanny Bay
