“When it comes to acting on climate change, you can count us in,” Gov. Jay Inslee, as part of the U.S. Climate Alliance, said to the United Nations’ General Assembly last month. I hope our governor knows we’re counting on him to back up that statement by denying Tesoro-Savage’s proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver.
My mother told me, though, it is always good to have a Plan B. That’s why I am voting for Don Orange for port commissioner. He knows the world’s largest rail-to-marine terminal simply does not fit within our vision for Vancouver’s future.
