Thursday will be the first time since 1888 that the two holidays have coincided with the first day of Hanukkah on the same day as Thanksgiving. Wishing you all very good days all week, and beyond.
November 21 Meeting Summary:
Several people in PPC Skagit have been asking for more information regarding the transport of oil by train since these trains come through on the way to the March Point refinery and oil train accidents in Canada and Alabama have been in the news.
In response, the recent meeting was loaded with information on pending increases in oil trains throughout Washington, as well as the need to remain vigilant on the coal export proposals.
Thank you, Terry Weschler, for sharing your in-depth understanding of all these complex issues. Terry is the co-founder of Protect Whatcom. Take a look at the Infographic and the Table of oil terminal proposals that can be found on this excellent website:
