Letter: Gas field workers get protected, children get nada
To the editor:
The general taxpayers of B.C., through WorkSafeBC, are providing gas field employees with gas masks in the event of a sour gas leak.
There are 1,900 children who have nothing.
If the B.C. government is serious about environmental issues why are they sacrificing our children? They have had eight years to get it right.
By the way, we will be an export terminal for US thermal coal. BC Hydro trades in coal-fired electricity.
Please be honest, leadership, and tell us only 1,900 children will have to be risked for the greater good. Public safety and environmental standards mean nothing.
We must forgive our leaders for not knowing what they say. Citizens should have no expectation from leadership and should just give up.
