    Mr. Smith, hopefully you can take some more time to be political. Under both COSEWIC and the Species At Risk Act there is a proposal to close recreational salmon angling on the whole of the South Coast of NL. One of the identified threats to this population of wild Atlantic salmon is fish farming with their open pen feedlots. ISA here is the culprit. This is a serious problem which is close to home. I'm hoping you could take the time to address this in a future article.

    What do we use instead of oil?Is there a rechargeable battery that we can use to drive and fly to our destinations?Maybe we can use a long,long,real long extension cord connected to the electric cars.Like it or not there is no substitute for oil to run the world economy. Its interesting to see protests in Vancouver against pipe lines.Those same people drive to the protest or fly into town for it,using the oil products that they hate so much ,to get there.I saw no flying carpets or brooms near by.Oh my,what hypocrites.

      I did not say anything in this piece about not driving cars or stopping the use of oil products. I'm just against installing oil pipelines in the headwaters of salmon rivers. This pipeline has nothing to do with us using oil and gas. It has to do with selling oil in Asia. And I'm not against that either, again just the rish associated with this particular transport option
