A letter sent to the Dawson Creek Daily News purporting to be from a pipeline bomber in northeastern B.C. says the attacks will “get a lot worse” if the company doesn’t start pulling out of the area within three months.

The newspaper reports that the two-page letter, which it received on Wednesday but held off releasing until today, promises a “summer vacation” free of attacks.

But the hand-written note says that will change if EnCana hasn’t announced a plan by the fall to pull out of the area within five years.  According to CKNW the letter says EnCana has 3 months to phase out operations in northeastern BC or bombings will get worse.

Several media outlets received a letter last October after the first of six attacks, including two this month.

The latest letter doesn’t specify the exact area EnCana must leave, but it does mention a gas plant in the Kelly Lake area.

The RCMP’s anti-terrorism unit has been investigating the bombings and plans to hold a news conference later today.
