The debate over pipelines is not just good, it’s great, and we need to talk about our future, not just the future in my backyard. So before anyone suggests that I have turned to supporting industry let me make one thing clear, I remain opposed to “dilbit” pipelines, and I remain committed to protecting our environment first.
That said I refuse to be hijacked by people who make a living at killing every job out there. Yes jobs are work for industry, yes industry is a bottom line feeder, but we the people need balance. We need government to regulate industry on our behalf, and if they don’t we will use every means at our disposal to get them to comply.
The problem today is the environmentalism has grown into a trade of its own, a career of creating misinformation and disinformation, they use our love for our country against us, they use what we say against us in order to create chaos and cheap thrills on power trips.
