The Conservation Council of New Brunswick is doing some major backpedalling today with their letter to the editor in the T&T. It says “The Conservation Council has never, as has been quoted in the press, opposed the resort development” (this would be the resort development near Elgin that would have brought much needed economic development to the region).
No? How about your little call to action asking New Brunswickers to ring up Ireland and tell the developers we don’t want you here?
The CCNB is playing cynical games. They scuttled this project. Or at least they were a major reason why the project was scuttled.
In my opinion, the Conservation Council wants to conserve New Brunswick’s status as one of the poorest regions in North America. And that’s a tragedy. Pure and simple.
And, quite frankly, I am done spilling digital ink over such a cruddy organization.
