Plan B protesters deserve kudos

I must admit it's refreshing to see people passionate about an issue that doesn't involve personal gain. People often protest for higher wages or better benefits for themselves, but Plan B protesters are much more altruistic. Along with the active protesters, there are a large number of passive protesters displaying ‘Stop Plan B’ bumper stickers and signs.

On the opposing side, there are very few ‘I Agree with Plan B’ signs, which makes it a pretty lopsided issue. Imagine what the numbers would be if civil servants could weigh in without the perceived or real fear of retribution. Also, are rumours of hush notices from Veteran's Affairs accurate?

For an issue with so many against and so few for, it's unfathomable why people opposed to Plan B are ignored with not much more than a ‘trust me, we know best’ attitude. Do they really expect us to trust the same engineers, planners and politicians that gave us Plan A, which would have destroyed Strathgartney Provincial Park (slap yourself in the forehead here)? Their ineptitude and handling of the situation has made trust impossible. It appears that government is doing nothing more than trying to spend the maximum amount of federal money with the least amount of imaginative thinking.
