Re: Pipeline posturing doesn’t help, BC Views, Aug. 7
I recently read an article about natural history – i.e. how Earth, all of its elements and all of its inhabitants were meant to co-exist harmoniously, etcetera – and it procured a figurative sigh from my rather (these days) cynical psyche.
It’s already bad enough that our federal government PM and MPs are making deep cuts to social programs to assist their alleged budget balancing while still subsidizing and granting record-breaking-high corporate tax cuts to those needing the monies the least.
But even worse, extremist-libertarian, fiscally-conservative minded national leaders and their lapdogs insist on considerably weakening, amongst other ecological matters, natural habitat protection laws in regards to the federal Fisheries Act to empower corporate mineral-extraction interests – not to mention ignoring, muzzling, deeply cutting funding for and/or outright eliminating environmental safeguard agencies, e.g. Environment Canada.
