LETTERS: Let U.S. ship their own coal

An open letter to Fraser Surrey Docks.

Let’s start with the U.S.-Canadian border, White Rock and Crescent Beach, the area we live in.

An open letter to Fraser Surrey Docks.

Let’s start with the U.S.-Canadian border, White Rock and Crescent Beach, the area we live in.

Let the United States export their own coal. We do not need more, or any, American coal dust and diesel exhaust. Those coal trains pass through these two lovely locations.

The only entrance and exit to and from Crescent Beach is over the railway tracks. Can you imagine the results of a fire or swimming/boating accident plus the long waiting periods as hundreds of rail cars pass through?

Just the other day, cars were backed up to 128 Street plus all the cars waiting to leave the beach area. And this is going to be doubled!

This is the beginning, then to the Fraser Surrey Docks, Fraser River, then large tankers all to follow and dust, dust and more dust.

There must be a way to prevent this nightmare.

Could some common sense be hammered into these individuals who only care about lining one’s pocket or the almighty dollar?

Surrey Docks, take note.

What’s wrong with a port in Bellingham?
