Concerns: from raw logs to LNG to water

One letter that caught my attention is the one by Liz Newton on the proposed TPP agreement that our former prime minster [signed] where he gave away the hen house, fox and all.

I note that our own group in Victoria have been doing or preparing for this kind of relationship ever since they were unfortunately voted into the legislature. But to compound a felony our B.C. government promise faithfully to keep exporting raw logs since they are continuing to earn a huge profit for the government coffers. One surely has to wonder what side of reality these members are working on, dreaming of a copious flow of cash from a non-existent LNG flow, which, by the way, was finally scuppered by a former B.C. government excuse as too dangerous, even on an island near Prince Rupert (present location now West Australia, off port Hedland).

This also makes for good reading! Oh editor, another thing to keep your eye on: water. Nestles of Switzerland are now owners of 75 artesian well across Canada from which they have plans to sell a very large quantity of this water at a mega profit!
