Letter to,Government


This is a letter I’m sending out today to the three people listed below. Wonder if I will get a response, or more importantly, get any action.

Mr Premier, Mr Bevan Baker and Mr Mitchell the people of Prince Edward Island require your attention. The Irving Corporation are raping our fields, forests and rivers. They are presently digging huge holding ponds and wells, planning irrigation in an effort to avoid the weak regulations we presently have in place. We are told the long awaited “Water Act” will place a moratorium on deep water wells and give protection to the water table. However, these things are happening as I write this letter so we cannot wait any longer, we need action now. Every member of government must surely be as aware of these issues as I am. This province is rapidly reaching the point of no return. The damage already done is devastating but might still be reversible if the government would just take action. We have seen fish kill after fish kill, deforestation, poisonous chemical sprays wiping out the life in our soils. We have seen the top soil disappearing in the huge cleared and wide open potato fields. Birds and wild life are dying from the chemicals in the water and in the air. The Island has a cancer rate far above the national average. Indeed Islanders are dying, others suffering breathing problems, we are forced to close windows in the heat of summer. The previous governments have year after year pandered to the Irving’s, claiming how they provide so much needed work for islanders. Irving’s are a billionaire corporation, yet previous governments have given them loan after loan all from tax payers money. I could go on but I think you all ready know all of this. So I will conclude by pleading that this new government do what they promised and act for Islanders. Stop Irving Now. Remember the Conservative slogan. “ It’s about People”

Respectfully Submitted F.Ben Rodgers. Abram Village PE.

    We would likely get very upset if someone told us to our face that Canada is a third world country. We wouldn’t believe them in any way. I am, though, becoming more and more convinced that we do have third world politicians!
