Anderson versus Efford

David Anderson: “If you make the decision to proceed, that’s final. If you make the decision not to proceed, you can always reverse it later. But a decision to proceed you can’t reverse.”

John Efford: “We can’t allow the environment concerns to be at the cost of developing the natural resources.”

These quotes from Canada’s Ministers for the Environment and Natural Resources reveal fundamental differences of opinion on environmental protection vs resource extraction. From CBC’s On The Island, Jan 12. (See related news item.)
