Re: letter to the editor “Oil has real benefits.”
This letter was written by either someone who has not understood that the various proposed pipelines from the tar sands will deliver their product into ports and then by tankers to Asia. So unless he drives in China his chances of using petroleum products will be very slim.
If he is aware of this, then his comments could possibly attributed to being a paid promoter or troll for the pipeline companies.
I’m happy to be riding a bicycle in Sidney and actively protesting the chance of oil spills on our coast.
