The Port of Vancouver commissioners, currently under fire for promoting an oil terminal for our fair city, are now playing hardball with a more likable tenant, the Northwest Packing Company. A Sept. 11 story reported "Port, tenant clash over lease." The company, whose attorney says is the only fruit packer west of the Cascades, processes fruits for canning, sauces, and juices. They seems like a good tenant to me, using our Northwest bounty and employing 400 to 500 workers.
