LETTERS: Don’t let oil pipeline misinformation dissuade you

Quite amazing to see that 64 per cent of people voting in the Sooke News Mirror poll on the Kinder Morgan pipeline support it.

Of course, the poll is not scientific, but it shows there’s support for the pipeline.

We shouldn’t be surprised. We now know that “big oil” knew at least 30 years ago that their industry was heating the planet and that it might well be too late to prevent climate chaos by the end of the 20th century.

The Kinder Morgan pipeline has become a symbol of corporate greed. We won’t save the planet by stopping this pipeline, but we create space for a better world to emerge when we say no to this pipeline and to other big money boondoggles. Let’s not let misinformation dissuade us.
