Next Tuesday, February 9th, Eric de Place will join leaders in the Vancouver, Washington, area for the Columbia River Gorge Commission‘s monthly public meeting. Eric de Place will speak from 12:30-1:00 PM, focusing on the threat of oil and coal trains to the Columbia River and local communities.

The Northwest is on the front lines of oil and coal transport by rail. More than a dozen new proposals have emerged in recent years to ship coal and oil to Northwest refineries and port terminals. Join us next Tuesday to learn more and be a part of the discussion. You are welcome to provide written and oral comments to the Commission at the meeting.
