Earlier this year, Bill Goode of CKNW interviewed a principal of the coal-exporting company on his talk show.

It was made very clear that this enterprise would create a total of 250 permanent jobs in B.C. – 50 at the Surrey Docks and 200 at the Texada Island transfer wharf.

No wonder no U.S. state wants this business!

We are now being told that $375 million will pay for the routing of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail tracks. Really? This would be the first project ever to not come in at double or triple a politician’s guesstimate.

Why don’t we simply tell Uncle Sam to find a U.S. port?
