It's only OK to be vocal if you are opposed to pipelines

I'm tired of decreasing job security. I'm tired of reading stats that show that majority of Canadians support a project that's ALREADY been approved. I'm tired of the new reality, where that fact somehow doesn't matter. I'm tired of hearing how investment is leaving Canada, how the delays are costing our economy. I'm tired of being unable to ignore the unrelenting truth we live with - how such opposition is ESPECIALLY costly to us, and our families. We were too busy working (or looking for work) to notice that we are being stalemated by a vocal minority, who seemly don't have any problems with foreign oil, nor the ability to look in the mirror and remember that demand is a product of their OWN consumption!! People who callously cheer on news of our job losses, project cancellations, etc - yet lay claim to the moral high road. The worst thing? I'm tired that things have come to the point where the only place I can freely share these opinions is here.
