‘We won’t tolerate our beautiful environment being destroyed’

Dear editor,

This is a thank you to the people who took the time to send their reactions on the election outcome to our local newspapers!

Dear editor,

This is a strong thank you to the people who took the time to send their reactions on the election outcome to our local newspapers!

We feel that the blame can be placed on all sides of this very ‘UNgreen’ outcome — the parties should have dialogued with each other and, more of us should have voted!

We came here from Salt Spring Island a few years ago and where they now have an active Committee for Cross Party Cooperation. And even though they are still going through their electoral count and maybe recount, they did dialogue.

We should be equally shocked at a 52-per-cent voter turnout — a very disturbing fact in a so-called democratic country. Many progressive countries have made it mandatory to vote and maybe our time has come.

But, when you break down the voting numbers and percentages, do you really think Ms. Clark has a mandate to impose environmental chaos on the province?

We foresee legal actions, protests and even blockades ahead, and we can only hope that our local MLA takes note. We won’t tolerate our beautiful environment being destroyed in the name of greed.

Rosemary Baxter,

Courtenay
