Enbridge ad unwanted

Editor:

I am deeply disturbed the Smithers Interior News chose to give Enbridge a voice by placing their ad in the paper last week.

Smithers has publicly voiced it’s opposition to the proposed pipeline as well as most communities in the Pacific Northwest.

I had hoped the Interior News was a community paper.

To allow Enbridge a full page of advertising space for a proposed project is shocking and very disturbing!

I wish the advertising office had said “No” to Enbridge’s request.

By accepting the ad and the money from it, I realize the Interior News is more interested in capitalism and making a buck than it is in truly being a voice for the community.

Please take a stand along with the rest of us and say ‘No’ to any further ads from Enbridge.
