Letter: Oppose terminal, support Orange


Tesoro-Savage, the largest oil-by-rail project in North America, proposed to be on the Columbia River, is opposed by only one of the candidates running for Port of Vancouver Board of Commissioners, District 1. His name is Don Orange.

I live in the blast zone. The oil-train traffic is already intolerable and proven unsafe (see Mosier, Ore.). Construction of the terminal would significantly increase the trains and the risk and the pollution on the Columbia. The decision to build will affect all residents of our beautiful Gorge. Please help stop this looming disaster. Vote for Orange.
