Vancouver City Council Votes Unanimously to Prohibit Future Oil Projects

Earthjustice

VANCOUVER, Washington - On Monday, the Vancouver City Council voted 7 to 0 to prohibit crude oil storage, handling, and refining facilities in Vancouver’s industrial zones. The vote is a historic step to prevent new proposals like the current Tesoro Savage and NuStar oil terminal proposals, which together would bring almost 140 million barrels of crude oil per year through Northwest communities. A crowd of over 150 turned out to support this step by the City – overflowing the council chambers.
