Wants public to know more about coal plan

I would like to add my voice to those supporting the Lummi Nation in its request to the Army Corps of Engineers to stop the proposed GPT coal port at Cherry Point. I believe that the many negative effects of this project would greatly impact the treaty rights of the tribe, as well as the rest of us living in this beautiful region. I urge everyone to investigate the probable consequences of transporting, storing and shipping coal in our area. The document “The Proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal (GPT) Facts and Impacts” compiled by volunteers at “Save Birch Bay” is available at the library and Bookmobile. Please get informed.
