The Dawson Creek Daily News is reporting that the two-page hand-written letter it recieved on Wednesday, contained information on more possible EnCana bombings. The newspaper reports that EnCana has three months to start shutting down its operations, or the recent string of bombings will get a lot worse.

The letter went on to say, “We can all have a summer vacation including your security personnel and the RCMP, who have not helped you to date anyway.”

The gas plant near Kelly Lake was mentioned, but it wasn’t directly targeted as a potential site for a future attack.

Sergeant Tim Shields with the RCMP says the letter is under investigation. He says the letter does target EnCana operations.

Last October, the newspaper was among local media outlets that received the first bomb threat, just before the first of six bombings happened to the EnCana well sites.

The letter comes after the two recent bombings south of Dawson Creek.  The RCMP will hold a press conference on Thursday at 1pm.  Following that press conference we will have more on this story.
