Terasen Gas can still be kept in British Columbia instead of being exported to Texas. Terasen belongs to the people of BC, it is currently run by hundreds of competant British Columbians. It provides BC gas at BC prices for BC consumers.
The legislative changes made by the BC Liberal government will allow the American Texas company, Kinder Morgan, to take control of OUR precious resource and run it from Houston, Texas. Do you believe that would be in our interests? We know your answer.
Today, whatever profits that are made from BC Gas, can be put back into the BC economy. If the sale goes through, those profits will be used to build an American pipeline from the tar sands to America. And to answer to shareholders in a "whole nuther country" as they like to call themselves. This is a very sorry situation to lose the sovereignty over our very own resource.
There is still one last hope to save what we already own. You need to send two strongly worded emails, (or letters or phone calls or faxes) not a lot of effort to distinguish yourself as a caring British Columbian who has confidence in our ability to operate and control our resources ourselves; tell them you do NOT you want BC Gas (Terasen) to be sold to any American company.
