Oil and Lawsuits Discussed

Dear Editor,

Two parishes are about to sue the oil companies over canals that these parishes issued permits for the same canals to be dug originally. They did this so they could reap the benefits of the oil and gas royalties they would produce. Back then no one realized the damage to our marshes and coastline that the canals would cause.

Maybe they should sue the federal government as well for dredging the intercoastal canal which is the “big daddy” of all these canals.

We are leaving all options on the table – deep or not deep? Big or not big?
