Come to the Missoula City Council Hearing!
Monday, May 10th
Missoula City Council Chambers (140 W. Pine St)
So, some of you have already received the email, but this is important! This Monday, May 10 (tomorrow), the Missoula City Council will make a decision concerning the resolution that will act as their public comment to the Montana Department of Transportation regarding the Tar Sands Shipments.
We need everyone we can get to go to the hearing and request that the strongest possible language be used regarding issues posed in the resolution. We need to encourage City Council member to reintroduce language regarding climate change and the negative impacts that mining the Tar Sands will have on the future on Montana and the world.
Most of all, we need to support the members of the city council who are willing to take a stand against the shipments, and let the DOT know that their review of the damages these shipments will bring has been myopic at best.
If you cant come, and you’d like some advice on how to word you comment to the DOT regarding these shipments, look slightly to you right. Attorney Robert Gentry is in a video discussing some of the problems with the EA, and we have an example of a comment letter that you can send in yourself.
Other than that,
we hope to see you tomorrow, 7pm, Missoula City Council Chambers.
