Re: Union leaders promote cleaner image for B.C. coal

Union leaders speaking out on behalf of the coal industry and its workers are to be applauded, and the truth about coal mining in B.C. is clear — coal is safely mined and transported in our province and all British Columbians benefit from a strong coal industry.

That’s why companies, labour organizations and the men and women who work at coal mines and terminals have been speaking out about working with coal ( They are telling their stories about how the industry benefits their lives, their families and the communities where they live and work.

We encourage British Columbians to get the facts and listen to those who work in the industry every day.
