Governor Inslee has 60 days to stop the largest crude oil by rail terminal in North America – make your voice heard! RSVP today.
The proposed Vancouver oil terminal would handle a staggering 360,000 barrels of crude oil each day. That’s 42% of the capacity of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The terminal would bring five more explosive oil trains per day through the Columbia River Gorge. Further, it would sharply increase the oil barge and ship traffic in the Columbia river, risking oil spills that could kill large numbers of our already dwindling salmon population.
Don Orange, a recently elected port commissioner in Vancouver, has promised to cancel the lease with the oil terminal. However, if Gov. Inslee approves the project, Don Orange will be unable to cancel the lease. That’s why we need you to show up, and help us tell Governor Inslee: stop the largest oil
terminal in North America!
This summer, we got a taste of what climate change can bring. We cannot allow new fossil fuel infrastructure to be built. Come out to this rally to tell Governor Inslee to deny this terminal now!
