An threatening letter is being investigated by the RCMP for a possible bomb attack against EnCana Corp. EnCana has offered a $1 million reward for the capture of whomever is responsible for the 6 unsolved gas pipeline bombings.
Dawson Creek, British Columbia -- An impending bomb attack this summer on natural gas pipelines has been presented to authorities in an anonymous letter, reports the Associated Press.
In a CTV report, it is declared by the writer that "this land belongs to us' and is 'ready for action against all [EnCana's] installations'.
The written intention of previous three letters has been to stop operations of Calgary-based EnCana Corporation.
Police are probing the authenticity of the latest letter. The previous ones were handwritten. This submission is typed.
In July 2009, EnCana offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible. Beginning in July 2008, six bombings have occurred on EnCana pipelines. All crimes have remained unsolved.
No injuries have been reported but the bombings have caused leaks, thus a risk to public safety.
EnCana's revenues from the gas business earned the corporation $6 billion last year and employs 3,800 people across Canada.
