federal environment minister and the natural resource minister SUCK

Posted on Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 11:10 AM

We need to start a letter writting campaign, and let these ministers know, we don't want them exploiting sable island for anything. The very fact that no one is allowed there is why its still preserved. The argument of turning it into a park to protect it is absolutely absurd, its already protected by the very fact that no one can go there without the explicit permission of the canada coast guard. I can understand making it a wildlife preserve to accord it protection from people who might want to exploit the island for other things, but making it a wildlife preserve would have to mean no one is allowed there except scientists/meterologists etc... which is exactly who is allowed there now. The government is clearly not doing this for the benefit of anyone.

Something tells me someone has their fingers in the pie for the money they're going to be making of off the exploitation of this precious place if they do allow tourism. I can't say anything that someone else hasn't already said, but this makes me very very angry!
