Tankers are already here

As a seakayaker and sailor for the past 24 years, even the idea that an oil spill could happen is very frightening

I loved your story about not wanting oil tankers using our waters (News July 6).

As a seakayaker and sailor for the past 24 years, even the idea that an oil spill could happen is very frightening.

I have seen many oil tankers coming down Haro Strait, but yesterday, the China Progress appeared and looked to me to be at least one-and-a-half times the length of all the other tankers I’ve ever seen in our area.

Vote no to supertankers, is great to say, but guess what people, they’re already here.
