Dogwood Deception

Like an angry four year old kid, the author of Dogwood’s posts remain hidden like a kit ranting from behind a bush. We did a screen capture of what they said, and it sounds a whole lot like a kid gloating over his discovery, the twisting the truth to try make a point.

Now the facts.

Two weeks prior to the latest stop work orders being issued,  Coastal GasLink halted the majority of construction in the area, so that we could enhance our erosion and sediment control measures during this challenging Spring melt season. read more

Irresponsible Journalism – Black Press does it again

Considering nothing gets printed without some newspaper editor approving an article written by someone who is still a student of sorts, puts the blame on Black Press who put quantity of articles over quality of journalism.

Amanda Follett Hosgood

Amanda was raised in suburban Toronto and completed her journalism degree at Carleton University in Ottawa  In 2006, she visited Smithers and never left, using her degree to write against everything that built our community, in particular our industries. Her chief complaint always seems to read like this “did not respond to The Tyee’s questions by deadline” sort of an obvious indication even the NDP do not take her seriously, however as a mouth piece for the people living in the Skeena watershed its quite embarrassing to have her writing lies about us this way. read more
