    Deregulation has led to “0” monitoring of all resource extraction projects here in B.C. and will undoubtedly lead to further compromising of precious B.C. water-sheds. I strongly suspect that placing the environmental concerns of Canadian citizens the above the corporate bottom line will not happen without civil disobedience! If the bottom line of any resource extraction company is so fragile it can not stand to bend with strong Canadian environmental protection regulations then it is not a viable project to begin with and should not be allowed to proceed.
