If your cartoonist is unable to get her messages across without extensive use of the written word to make her point, then she should write letters to the editor.
The Jan. 26 “cartoon” was full of verbiage misrepresenting what is happening with regard to the proposed Pacific Northwest LNG project.
The cartoon has some thick head saying in part: “…we do have a fear of changing one of the most sensitive salmon habitats on the B.C. coast by sticking an LNG plant in it…”
First of all, the project envisages no such thing. What is proposed is a suspension bridge and pier that would carry a pipeline from Lelu Island to a dock for LNG tankers.
Concern has been expressed that the bridge and pier supports could adversely affect young salmon grounds there. Those responsible for the project are taking great care to address these legitimate concerns and we can all hope that they are successful in doing so.
Otherwise, it could mean that another Canadian pipeline project which would have provided much needed employment and subsequent tax revenues to help fund our social needs, such as education and healthcare will not be built.
In the meantime, please ask your cartoonist to represent people who have their facts straight and can think beyond the end of their nose.
