MLAs are spending their last day at the Legislature before the break… and
COL_news_Coal_2345a group opposing plans to barge US coal to Texada Island is trying to get
their attention.

Voters Taking Action on Climate Change says it’s hoping a bold ad in
Victoria’s main newspaper will prompt Premier Christy Clark to address the
issue.

Kevin Washbrook says the ad targets what they see as a contradiction between
the premier’s support for LNG and her silence on the coal plan


A provincial permit to allow more coal storage on Texada has already been
approved, and a decision from Port Metro Vancouver on the Fraser Surrey
Docks part of the project is expected next month
