Eco-Activist Ingmar Lee climbs flag pole at BC Legislature
Having long ago grown weary of corporate control of political and social processes, long time environmentalist Ingmar Lee decided to join the 100,000 strong peoples’ conference in Copenhagen and express his concerns about the destruction of BC’s wilderness.
“It’s time to stop the for-profit logging corporations with their
insidious and on-going destruction of the last of Vancouver Island’s ancient temperate rainforest,” Ingmar insists.
Lee’s protest today highlights the proposed Enbridge Pipeline, planned to carry oil products from the infamous Tar Sands in Alberta to be then shipped across the Pacific.
He targets B.C. premier, Gordon Campbell, ironically the recipient last week in Copenhagen of a “Green” leadership award.
Lee has led movements in B.C. to protect ancient forests, and protest the shipment of raw logs out of BC.
