EnCana pipeline bomber issues a public warning

A person claiming to be behind the bombings calls for the oil and gas company to leave northern B.C. in three months

The purported bomber of EnCana-owned gas pipelines in northern B.C. issued a public warning to the company on Wednesday, saying things will “get a lot worse” if it doesn’t shut down its oil and gas operations. In a hand-written letter to the Dawson Creek Daily News, the bomber gives EnCana “three months to convince the residents here and the general public that you will commit to this program” and promises to halt all attacks on the pipelines until the deadline runs out. The letter goes on to describe the first six attacks—two of which have taken place this month—as “minor” and “fully controlled.” The RCMP, which says it got a copy of the letter from the newspaper soon after the Daily News received, has been investigating the bombings for months but have yet to lay charges.
