Suffield commander Lt.-Col. Malcolm Bruce said he plans to pull out all the stops to bar EnCana. … EnCana is still confident it will begin drilling by the fall of 2008. Bruce, took over the posting from former commander Dan Drew. Drew was one of EnCana’s biggest adversaries. Bruce is just as adamant. “I am mandated, if you will, to look after the environment down here,” said Bruce told Canadian Press. “It’s part of our departmental responsibility as assigned by Environment Canada and therefore I set it as one of the highest priorities in the base,” he said. … Boasting that the gas the company hopes to recover for the sake of a massive profit is environmentally friendly when burned is a moot point. The fact is the company would be disturbing a sensitive area to retrieve the wealth. … Protti’s remarks claiming his company recognizes the area is environmentally-sensitive and the firm wants to make sure “we do it right” is another moot point. There is no such thing as doing it right when intruding on sensitive lands. An intruder is an intruder.
