With the proposed Fraser Surrey Docks coal export expansion, White Rock waterfront will become a polluted noisy mess with mile long Coal Trains going by every hour. The emissions from these trains and their coal dust are toxic even in low doses. Coal dust collects in the lungs and can permanently damage their ability to clean themselves. Toxic chemicals include Mercury, Lead, and Chromium.
I have created a website for our local group who are leading the charge in White Rock against Coal Train expansion. If you are interested in more details about the health impacts of Coal Dust, or want to get involved, please check out our website at www.CoalFreeWhiteRock.ca
