No Shit? 10,000 Eh!

Trusty Winnipeg Sun delivers the news ......

First para:

"An environmental coalition surprised Tory Leader Hugh McFadyen Tuesday with 10,000 letters urging the province to stand firm against a major transmission line down the east side of Lake Winnipeg.
" .... Blahblahblah...

Third para:

"Ron Thiessen, Manitoba director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, had a brief discussion with McFadyen as he presented him with a CD version of the letters and one blank piece of paper symbolizing them."

Fourth para: (Note the Appeal to Authority!)

"The groups argue running BiPole III down the east side would jeopardize a bid to have the area designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, as well as compromising the ecological and cultural benefits of keeping the forest intact."

As IF having this designation or anything else from the UN should be considered a blessing!!

Buried at the bottom:

"A spokeswoman for the Tories said the vast majority of the signatories to the letters are American, with only a handful coming from Manitoba."

Question! Are these the same bunch that conned Garry Doer into folding this project?

Why ....
Yes they are!

By the way ... if you hear a bunch of noise about saving boreal forests ..... this has Nothing to do with it!
