The site on which Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies want to build the Northwest's largest oil-by-rail terminal in Vancouver is zoned for such a purpose, the state panel reviewing the proposal decided today.
But that doesn't mean the companies will be allowed to handle as much as 380,000 barrels of crude per day at the Port of Vancouver, according to the state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council.
Approval of a narrow land-use consistency matter "does not, by any means, translate into an approval of the proposed project," Bill Lynch, chairman of the evaluation council, said today.Doesn't have to. Just keep those scum from the Vancouver Soviet out of it... you know, so they can be on the receiving end of their CRC-style crap for once?
