About the opposition to more coal going to Fraser Surrey Docks: Most of the problems seem to be about the dust.
What about the leaching of the coal into the river and potential fire hazards in a residential area? It seems to me our river and its salmon runs should be a more important consideration.
Just because Fraser Surrey Docks are losing out on some business does not mean we should turn our major river system into a coal port for the U.S.
I am not opposed to container traffic or the boatloads of cars off-loaded up and down the Fraser, but coal is a completely different issue. Like asbestos, we send it overseas even though we do not use it ourselves.
Yes to salmon and no to coal.
