I bailed on resource geophysics after a series of unethical gigs. The final straw? Discovering I was doing mineral exploration without community consent.
I found gold.
In ancestral burial grounds.
I quit ASAP.
Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it moral.
BC breaks its own laws all the time (exe: court rulings on BC vs teachers union). It gets worse with resource industry vs First Nations.
A lot of what happens is neither legal nor moral.
But Canada keeps doubling down on the shittiest possible choices to make us significant drivers of climate change despite our small population, then executing it in needlessly high-risk ways.
Then run tankers through fjords on a coast at high risk for rogue waves.
Not a clever idea.
