Re: Fraser Surrey Docks’ proposal to ship U.S. coal to Asia.
Do we need jobs at any cost? I say no. I am for jobs. I am for shipping more coal if we mine it ourselves, but not for just being a shipping agent.
Let nobody kid themselves. There will be coal dust and lots of it. We have spent lot of effort and money collectively to clean up our air through the AirCare program. This will add a new dimension to filthy air. It just won’t blow away. Lots of it will come down as black soot on our homes and everywhere with rain.
We should not take a chance on exacerbating health problems. Fraser Surrey Docks is smack in the middle of populated areas. Fifty new jobs is not worth the downside for ourselves and our children.
