Building walls won’t help energy debate
Re. “Trudeaus continue to hurt oilpatch,” Letters, Sept. 14
In a world now grappling with extreme climate and ecological uncertainty, exhuming the old economy versus environment ultimatum is irresponsible, especially when the topic is a goliath cross-country fossil-fuel project.
To suggest those concerned for the well-being of the planet and Quebec are somehow “special interest groups” takes it to the level of the absurd.
Such a black-and-white mentality belittles democracy, shuts communicative doors and polarizes people when the exact opposite is needed.
If the Trudeau administration’s policies are debatable, let us respectfully come together and discuss it. Building impenetrable walls won’t help anything. Tom Roschkov, Edmonton
