Prac­tice what you preach

The Prince George Citizen - - Opinion -

A friend of mine was telling me that he went to one of the past open house pub­lic meet­ings on the pro­posed ex­pan­sion of the Kinder Mor­gan pipe­line.

He said the park­ing lot at the meet­ing hall was com­pletely full with cars.

No park­ing spa­ces avail­able. He also said for four blocks around the meet­ing hall, there was also no park­ing spa­ces avail­able. The pur­pose of these meet­ings were to voice pub­lic opin­ions on oil trans­porta­tion.

When my friend went up to speak at the mi­cro­phone, he men­tioned about no park­ing spa­ces avail­able, yet he told the au­di­ence, how come the bike rack out­side the build­ing was com­pletely empty. Not one bike.

He said the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple are here to voice their opin­ions on oil, and yet ev­ery­one drove their cars to the meet­ing.

Their was clear si­lence from the pub­lic au­di­ence and the panel on the stage. He stunned them all.

In sum­mary, en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists are liv­ing in the twi­light zone.

They must learn to prac­tice what they preach. Joe Sawchuk, Dun­can, B.C.
