LETTERS: Dust clouds don’t beautify

Editor:

Port Metro Vancouver is really selling itself with TV ads saying how environmentally responsible they are.

One phrase caught my attention: “maintain the beauty of the port for all of us.”

So why would they even consider turning Fraser Surrey Docks into the third coal dock on the Lower Mainland? Folks living on both sides of the Fraser River are well aware of the dust clouds that already erupt when other products are loaded on ships at FSD.

Adding U.S. thermal coal dust will certainly not enhance the beauty of our area.
