The oil train wreck that caused death and destruction in a small Canadian town has aroused new concern regarding oil transport throughout the Pacific Northwest. On Tuesday, this concern halted the decision of Port of Vancouver’s vote on lease approval of a proposed crude oil terminal.

Tuesday was also the day that hundreds of people showed up to hearings for the Morrow Pacific Project, a proposal to transport about 9 million tons of coal per year through the Pacific Northwest.

What questions do you have about more fossil fuels passing through the Pacific Northwest? What effect would oil or coal terminals in the Northwest have on you?
