There is no environmental protection — we are betrayed

Dear editor,

Bills C-38 and C-45 roll back environmental protection for Canada’s rivers, lakes and streams in order to facilitate oil, gas and other resource extraction.

I started to write you a letter asking what protection do we now have against, for example, another mine on the Tsolum, gold mining on the Oyster, water extraction from the Campbell, coal mine tailings in our lakes, but then I realized, that’s the point.

There is no protection. We are betrayed.
