Regarding P.M. Harper’s “tweet” of 18 Oct. thanking the crew of the Gordon Reed for all their hard work.
P.M. Stephen Harper and M.P. John Duncan if you and your party had been doing the hard work you ought to have been doing, as the paid politicians of this country, this might never have happened.
Time to get your acts together and ensure our coast line is protected. It shouldn’t take coast guard ships this long to get somewhere, nor should their towing cables snap. But then it is doubtful you actually care. Hey, you’re the guys who closed coast guard stations and have been eliminating all sorts of things which ought to protect Canadians and their environment.
How about a few regulations for foreign ships coming into Canadians waters, like they need to be functional.
Now to imagine if that tanker had split open. Now think about all the tanker traffic you and your fellow corporate travellers want to put on the B.C. coast. Time to re think all that pipeline propaganda. Pipelines end at ships. Those ships go out on our coast line. Then there are accidents, just like this one.
