    Dear editor, A young woman, 17 years old, still in high school, was murdered in Surrey by a sexual predator, recently released from prison. Now in all this “talk” we hear the RCMP can’t provide surveillance on sexual predators who are likely to re-offend, due to a lack of resources. We have only the RCMP’s word for that. When Kinder Morgan calls the RCMP, the RCMP has all sorts of time and money to provide “protection/surveillance” for our corporate citizen. A 71-year-old woman, Leslie Askin, was out in Burnaby, taking pictures of the Shell oil tanker farm. Kinder Morgan…
