Letter: Terminal not worth the risk




What happens if and when there is a huge oil spill in the Portland/Vancouver area? How much damage and lost income/land value will it produce? Maybe it will never happen, but is it worth the risk? There are so many jobs in construction here now that I can’t get a contractor to bid on my house that burned down. All contractors around here, if they are any good, are buried in work. An oil terminal just isn’t worth the risk.
