Joan Boxalls's poem on fracking
Keeping the Peace (Valley)
Wonderful letter from those radicals in the Peace Valley Environment Association
Dear Mr Harper Sir,
As you may be aware some people in British Columbia want to build another hydro dam on the Peace River. Some other people think this is a very bad idea because all of the screw ups from the previous two dams have not yet been fixed.
Recent reports say the proponents, BC Hydro, have spent over 300 million dollars on surveying the site, planning construction and promoting the idea to the citizens of BC. This doesnt sound like much until you understand it has already been done two or three times before and it didnt make sense then either.
The people who are trying to inform all the other people about all of the issues around this insane idea are doing so out of their own pockets with cash donations, garage sales, dances and of course getting money from those foreign radicals that Joe Oliver and yourself have mentioned many times.
You would be amazed how many foreign radicals live right there in Ft St John, Hudsons Hope and West Moberly.
I know a few that have been there for almost 30 years, they have learned to speak English very well and have taken a shine to the Peace Valley. Some other foreigners have been there even longer. For example at West Moberly some of those people come from immigrant families that arrived seven thousand years ago (I think they were from China)....
