Letters- Consequences

This is a reminder to your readers that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau will make a decision in early December regarding expansion ofthe Trans Mountain Pipeline. If approved, there will be a subsequent increase from five to 35 tankers a month plying the waters ofBoundary Pass and Haro Strait. This will result in a much increased risk of an Exxon Valdez type spill, with environmental and economicdevastation, stretching for tens to hundreds of miles depending on weather, tides and the size of the spill. This warning is written to urgeyour readers to contact Senators Murray and Cantwell and Governor Inslee urging then to try and persuade Prime Minister Trudeau not toapprove the permitting of the pipeline expansion.
