LETTERS: Site C dam a flood of problems

This letter is to express my concerns as a citizen of the Province of British Columbia.

Dear Honourable Christy Clark and Minister Bill Bennett:

This letter is to express my concerns as a citizen of the Province of British Columbia.

I suggest you look up the program on PBS.org that was televised Wednesday, Dec. 17  Journey to Planet Earth – Extreme Realities. After viewing that I do not understand why on earth you would approve Site C to flood B.C. farmland.

There has to be better ways of dealing with generating more electricity or using less electricity.

With all the disasters caused by climate change; i.e. floods, fires, drought, typhoons and hurricanes, and people migrating to escape lands that they can no longer live on — it just doesn’t make sense to flood good land.  In fact, this is insane. Also the problem with pollution, pesticides killing off bees, water being poisoned by the gas and oil industry, plastics in the oceans and so forth.

There is no future for our children and grandchildren without food, air and water.  Climate change is the new normal. Wake up and smell the coffee! No Site C dam.
