As a former Liberal voter I am very surprised and disappointed to realize that this government office is even considering giving approval to a Teck Frontier tarsands mine at a time in our need for a cleaner environment.
It is totally irresponsible to consider approving such a project at this critical time.
Just as in the days of computers becoming a massive industry and people complained of lost jobs, a change of employment skills took place and look at the industry now.
Please do not kill the environment for a mercenary gain while the planet has such tremendous environmental pressures on it.
