Pinnacle pellet terminal belongs on Ridley Island

It is truly a sad day when big business can do whatever they want, no matter how much opposition they receive.

It is truly a sad day when big business can do whatever they want, no matter how much opposition they receive from the people directly affected by those decisions.

Seems to me that the people in the neighbourhood expressed several concerns regarding air quality pollution, noise pollution, loss of access to the waterfront, big rig traffic in the downtown core as well as concern for explosions and fire and unsightly silos.

Yes, the powers-that-be spout off their empty promises about our concerns and continue on in their ruthless manner.

The place for this business is on Ridley Island not on the waterfront in one of Prince Rupert’s best neighbourhoods.

Thank you.
