Proud to support enviro group

As I sent off my donation to the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC)...

Dear sir,

As I sent off my donation to the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC), I remembered the vitriolic comments by Vivian Krause concerning United States-based environmental groups and the fact that they are donating to Canadian causes.

Big Oil depends on its many branches –  Exxon, BP, Enbridge, Sinopec, etc. – to promote the oil industry. Many of these companies are given grants and tax breaks so they are actually subsidized by taxpayers.

Why shouldn’t environmentalists work together? Unlike Big Oil, environmentalists seek to keep the world safe and clean for the generations to come.

As a pensioner, I cannot afford to donate large amounts. I support Canadian environmental groups, but I am proud to also donate to international groups that are doing good work for humanity.

Big Oil is the real threat to Canada’s sovereignty. So long as our governments are looking after the well-being of the oil industry and not the welfare of citizens, I welcome the assistance of groups such as the NRDC.

Sincerely,

 

Margaret Ouwehand.
