Oilpatch should replace trees
Re. “Northern Alberta company plants 80,000 trees to help restore caribou habitat,” June 11
Monday’s paper had an article describing the replanting of trees, at the cost to the taxpayer, on seismic cutlines in the Berland River area. The team doing this work has, according to this article, replanted about 60 kilometres of these cuts; there remain about 150,000 km to complete the job.
This damage was done by the oil industry during the regimes of the Social Crediters and the Conservatives. Should not this work be paid for by the industry which did the damage?
Just another example of how our governments have prostrated themselves before the might of the oil barons. Emil Bizon, Edmonton
