Letters to the Editor

Big 'Thank you' for support; big 'No' to pipeline | Letters

San Juan Islanders for Safe Shipping says "thank you" to all of you who stopped by to buy a brownie, spin the oil tanker Wheel of Fortune, and/or sign the petition at our booth at the County Fair.

All of your signatures will be attached to the comment letter that we will send to Canada in March—saying “NO” to Kinder Morgan’s proposed pipeline expansion project and the additional 348 tankers a year exporting Canadian Tar Sands crude oil through our islands.

An extra big thank you to the brownie bakers, booth helpers and supporters.

Together we can work to protect the Salish Sea.
