Sub Titled:  “We Must Stand United”Dr. Expresses deep concern for the negative health impact of allowing the BC coastline to become a major shipping port to export US coal to foreign countries.

All the risks involved including environmental damage for creating relatively few jobs just makes no logical sense whatsoever. Proposals to expand the export of US thermal coal from Metro Vancouver put our communities and the environment at risk from exposure to coal dust and diesel exhaust. This exported coal, when burned, increases the risk of runaway climate change and generates trans-ocean air pollution that comes back to our communities.

Thanks for watching and doing your part to make this cleaner & better world to live in.
