Letter: A greasy situation

Prime Minister Trudeau has approved the Kinder Morgan and Trans-Mountain stinky slinky’s to thread their way from Alberta to Vancouver.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has approved the Kinder Morgan and Trans-Mountain stinky slinky’s to thread their way from Alberta to Vancouver.

Stinky slinky (oil that is) will be shipped through an over crowded harbour with a great potential to leak stinky into the harbour and through the gateway to the open sea, killing all sea life in it’s path.

What Trudeau has done is place a beautiful harbour and coastline in jeopardy as we all know, what man builds can break as  proven pretty much 24/7. Justin is assured by science and multi-study’s telling how safe stinky slinky will be as he ploughs through our pristine waters.

I might add, it will not be Mother Nature but man who will deliver the final blow to water’s and sea life that have kept mankind alive since the beginning of time. I say to the Prime Minister Trudeau — go play in a puddle with stinky slinky who will keep you well oiled. When it happens will science be to blame? Or, stinky slinky’s friends? The one’s with money who will investigate their man-made  tragedy  that will over time, happen again and again as man should know all good things like life itself come to an end.
