Open the gates, let the waters roll

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Thursday, June 08, 2006

From Dorothy Lake in the south to the Kensington Mine in the north, and to all the activity in between, we have cracked open the throttle on the engines that power the wheels of progress. And believe you me, those wheels are going to roll over a lot more than eight trees in Berners Bay. And I say, open the flood gates, and let the waters roll. What else are you going to do? Send your children to work in China for 20 cents an hour. Only so many can flip burgers at McDonald's for minimum wage. You heard it here first.
