Pipelines better than train derailment

The Fraser River and estuary tidal zone would never fully recover from a major oil train derailment

It is high time we started saying yes to pipelines.

A train load of oil cars should not be allowed within 100 miles of our mountainous Fraser River and Thompson River canyons.

This Fraser River and estuary tidal zone would never fully recover from a major oil train derailment. We should be getting very serious about looking after it rather than trying to restore it.

This marvel of creation has been very good to us. I know our First Nations people will agree. It is time to reciprocate.

Everything we need to sustain life is already here, all we have to do it look after it.

Jack Delair,

Hope
