Shameful Sabotage

Encana (TSX:ECA, NYSE:ECA) often bears the brunt of disgruntled rural landowners who feel that the production and transport of natural gas is somehow detrimental to society.

The person(s) responsible for attempting to blow up natural gas pipelines in northern British Columbia are sociopaths needlessly risking their lives and that of innocent bystanders in their quest to get some attention.

The good news is that suspicious activity is pretty easy to spot in northern Canada. Outsiders create excitement in rural areas and they are watched closely and most of the locals with extreme viewpoints are already known. We'll see if the RCMP can live up to their billing before someone gets hurt.
