Labrador ex­ploited

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear ed­i­tor,

A river is a liv­ing thing, the fish in it, the crea­tures in its sand and the crea­tures that live in its banks etc.

If you dam it, you kill it — some­thing that never should be done in a pris­tine land like Labrador. Peo­ples of Labrador al­ways re­spected and lived off the land. So such a crime against na­ture is 100 per cent the wrong thing to do, es­pe­cially since it’s for greed and to put more money into pock­ets of peo­ple who al­ready have money to in­vest.

So if you want power to run in­dus­try in and around St. John’s and the Avalon dam the Ex­ploits or Gan­der Rivers. They are less valu­able than the Churchill River. And if the power is pro­duced on the is­land you don’t have to con­tend with get­ting power up the North­ern Penin­sula - a win win sit­u­a­tion.

Labrador is over­ex­ploited enough I think.
