After a delayed vote following the recent oil train disaster in Canada, the approval of a proposed oil terminal in Vancouver, Washington was announced on July 23rd. On Saturday, protesters with 350.org responded with a rally in Vancouver to bring attention to oil, climate change and liquid natural gas export. 

In addition to the approval from the Port of Vancouver commissioners, there are more steps required in order to begin work on the project, such as Governor Jay Inslee’s approval and permitting from the State of Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council

What are your questions or concerns about the planned oil terminal in Vancouver?
