Carbon driving lesson


Published: Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Premier Gordon Campbell needs some basic driving lessons.

He says he wants to stop the growth of carbon emissions and reduce them by 33 per cent by 2020. But, his Gateway freeway plan would accelerate emissions and make it impossible to stop and turn around.

Mr. Premier, you first take your foot off the gas, then put the brakes on and then turn around.

Stepping on the gas (Gateway) and the brakes (transit) at the same time will just land us in a multibillion-dollar ditch.

Eric Doherty,
