Prime Minister Stephen Harper has once again sent a clear message to Washington, telling U.S. President George W. Bush last week that Canada won't allow natural gas tankers into Head Harbour Passage the only entryway into Passamaquoddy Bay.
Harper's unwavering defence of the bay and the near unanimous opposition to liquefied natural gas among Canadians who live along it are commendable. American developers are equally dogged in their determination to bring a liquefied natural gas industry to Washington County, Maine, and, by virtue of geography, to Charlotte County.
With an international controversy continuing to boil, it's comforting for LNG opponents to know that their nation's leader still has their backs.
