To the opportunist puppets:

I am tired of hearing the same lines from our community “big boys.” There is no transparency and mostly no integrity, all in the name of big bucks and keeping the status quo for those in power – that is, oil and gas corporations, big pharmaceuticals, avaricious water thieves, to name a few. (They’re all related anyways.) Often lately, I’m ashamed of being human.

I have yet to witness something different than hypocrisy in our present Yukon “leaders,” or should I say followers. I keep hoping that someday, someone will actually inspire me – a real leader who is not afraid to stand up for what is right in the big scheme of things. Are there no leaders anywhere amongst us?

Is no one capable of using creativity and thinking outside the box? There are numerous prosperous economic ventures possible in this era without having to keep the status quo.

I implore: respect your commitment to the Yukon people and implement the final recommendations of the Peel! Let’s not let this planetary jewel of rare wilderness become anything less than what it is.

Hoping this reaches heart wisdom, anyone?
