On August 11th 2014 I sent this mail to the following members of the Provincial Government, Robert Ghiz, Premier, Janice Sherry, Minister of Environment, and Sonny Gallant, my local MLA. Guess what? not a word, nothing in response, just silence. I suppose its what I should have expected, after all what can any one of them offer as an excuse. There is no excuse for what is happening to this Island, to the land, the air, the water, the fish, the wildlife and of course us, the Islanders
How much longer can this go on for, there must be an end to fish kills in our rivers
Will this government finally act to prevent these poisons being used by big corporate potato growers from entering our earth, our air, our streams and rivers. Successive governments have continually turned a blind eye, have made weak excuses. Trotting out the same old excuses- no real proof found that it was toxic run off etc etc. It cannot go on much longer, we are killing fish by the thousands plus untold numbers of other wildlife, birds,bees butterfly’s earth worms and God only knows what else. Please do the jobs you were elected for, do the right thing, have some courage for a change and face down these murderous greedy corporations and their all important spud size. Islanders cannot continue to live like this, our children cannot live like this, it must stop now. How much longer can we and this beautiful Island survive?
Talk about Silence being Golden!! it seems this Provincial Government have the market cornered on silence. Shame on our elected members, Shame on Robert Ghiz.
God Bless and keep reading
