Letters: Tree protesters missing point

A Richmond News reader thinks the Save Old Growth protesters are going about it the wrong way
Lions gate Bridge blockade June 22
Two protesters blocked both lanes of the Lions Gate Bridge traffic with a van Wednesday morning.

Dear Editor,

Re: “Save Old Growth blocking the Massey Tunnel,” News, June 16.

This group blocking traffic during peak hours defeats the purpose, as many vehicles got stuck, emitting more CO2, polluting the air and harming people’s health.

Some driver took matters into their own hands, leading to an altercation on the verge of road rage.

The ends cannot justify the means, particularly in this anti-emission climate.
