Patrick Radolla’s, letter to the editor in the Nov. 11 Williams Lake Tribune – totally agree and couldn‘t have said it better.

We are dismayed with idea of burning rail ties in Williams Lake.

Our air quality at times is less than desirable.

Industries in our town already produce much dust and air pollutants, and because of the inversions we experience the polluted air lingers for days.

Medical researchers claim that pollution is a major cause of many illnesses such as heart attacks, respiratory diseases, cancer, etc.

This is 2015, all levels of governments worldwide  are trying to slow down the pollution put into the air, it’s a matter of survival.

The burning of these rail ties has been turned down by Kamloops, B.C., other places in Canada and several places in the U.S.  If the other communities have considered it unsafe for their community — Why should Williams Lake consider it OK?

For these reasons we do not think that Atlantic Power Corporation should be allowed to burn railway ties in Williams Lake!
