I recently received a color brochure from Northern Star touting a $40 million plan for a Salmon Enhancement Initiative.

This is the latest offer of bribery from Northern Star to placate the local community for the development of a Liquid Natural Gas terminal at Bradwood Landing. What they don't talk about is the dredging of 55 acres of estuary used as prime salmon habitat. There is also nothing in the brochure about ship disruption, tanker ballast issues, odorless gas, the illegal use of eminent domain or potential terrorist attacks.

Northern Star wants to develop and endanger a pristine portion of the Lower Columbia River and thinks it is justifiable by throwing us a few bones (this salmon money). Don't be fooled by these Third World tactics. LNG is not a good option for Oregon or Washington.
