Protect wartershed and wild salmon of B.C.

My message to the Liberal government of B.C. is this: Your government has totally ignored the people and seem to be very out of touch with what the people want. You are committing political suicide by ignoring the grassroots movement surrounding the watersheds of B.C.’s Pacific coast.

The more you try to force private power through and the more farmed salmon are allowed to prevail, the more people will resist you. It amazes me that you fail to recognize the power that caring, honest people can have when they are angered by a corrupt government.

My message to the federal Liberal Party is this: I would vote for Michael Ignatieff in a heartbeat if he would oppose the federal government on these kinds of issues. If he would produce some actual specific policy speeches that outline his party’s intentions with respect to the salmon of the Pacific coast and the watersheds with respect to private power, it would go a long way towards securing my vote.

My message to the federal Conservatives is this: I applaud your efforts to improve the economy and create jobs. What I have yet to see from this government is any real commitment towards green living and sustainable development.

You are responsible for the fish farming regulations and you have done nothing or have said nothing about watershed issues in B.C. You will certainly not get my vote again, unless you take substantial steps towards a green future and sustainable living.

No one even knows what you’re doing most of the time because you never go on TV to tell Canadians where you stand on the environment and most importantly what your government is doing about any of these issues.

My message to the media is this: Why do you not cover important issues like the watersheds on the Pacific coast? Why are these things not important enough to make it on prime time news? Do the wild salmon have to actually become extinct before your agency will be moved into action?

My message to good people everywhere is this: If good people will not stand up for what is right, then we cannot expect people who are morally bankrupt to alter their policy. Please take the time to educate yourself and above all else, vote.
