Environmentalists missing the point

Dogmatic statements prompt former Land Conservancy member to swear off contributions

I was a member of The Land Conservancy back when the board made the correct decision to remove Bill Turner from his position for the reasons that you reported at the time.

But when he convinced enough people to have him reinstated, I, along with who knows how many others, ceased to be a member. So it will be interesting to know how much deeper TLC’s financial predicament is now, as a result of “impossible” actions being taken to save even more properties.

What also now interests me is the singular lack of understanding that environmentalists, in their zeal to protect land and animals, seem to have for the economic well-being of their fellow citizens. So, I no longer support any of them financially because they frighten me with some of their more dogmatic pronouncements.

But pipelines don’t. They are all over this country. Have been for ages, and the benefits to the quality of life for the people of this whole nation, and not just Albertans, are simply monumental.
