'Someone else's problem' is no solution

In our typical Canadian way, too many governments are not troubled over the federal government's lackadaisy approach to pipelines.

Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given, as reported on CBC, says “This is the kind of thing where we need both provincial governments and federal government to take a leadership role.” Yawn!

Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead says, among other things, “We want it [the pipeline] done. We want it done responsibly. We want it done safely.” Ho, hum!

Fort St. John’s Mayor Lori Ackerman says, “It concerns us there is this battle going on between the two provinces. We get both sides of the argument. We just need to have cooler heads and leadership.”

Double yawn, double ho hum, and of course, just pass the buck!
