In Our Opinion: Is it about science or lobbying?

Strangely, Lax Kw’alaams Hereditary Chief Don Wesley either didn’t understand the message or chose not to.

It’s all about the science.

Strangely, Lax Kw’alaams Hereditary Chief Don Wesley either didn’t understand the message  or chose not  to.

“They told us, based on how many people have been going back [to Ottawa] and lobbying, such as [B.C. Premier] Christy Clark, it’s going to come down to the science of what we’re talking about. That’s the message that we got. It didn’t matter how many times Christy’s been up there, making her push for job creations and all that – it’s not relevant to the science,” Wesley said.

So, if lobbying isn’t relevant, we wonder why Wesley et. al. were in Ottawa lobbying the PMO and environment minster’s office.

Correctly, the Lelu decision should come down to objective science and not political rhetoric.

Now, the only question remaining is: Whose science?
