Re: “It’s time to take back the port!” advertisement in The Leader, Oct. 24.
Let me get this straight. This ad asks us to drive, or take other forms of transportation, in our U.S. thermal coal-built cars, trucks, or buses, to New Westminster Quay, to protest against the very same thermal coal used in the manufacturing of the very vehicles we are using to get to the rally.
It doesn’t matter if it is U.S. thermal coal, Canadian thermal coal, or if it’s from any other location in the world. We do not have any control of where the thermal coal comes from that is used to build our transportation.
Don’t get me going on the fossil fuels these protesters are burning to get to this rally against U.S. thermal coal. It is the utmost in hypocrisy.
