Our View: Waterfront vote affects more than tar sands

from Portland Press Herald

The citizen-initiated South Portland Waterfront Protection Ordinance would probably stop Canadian tar sands oil from ever being loaded onto ships in Portland Harbor. If that is all it would do, the ordinance might be a prudent move to protect a vital natural resource. But unfortunately, the ordinance that goes before city voters Nov. 5 could do much more. The broadly worded regulation would prevent the "enlargement ... reconstruction or alteration" of any aspect of the six oil terminals on the South Portland side of the harbor, five of which don't handle crude oil and would never be involved with the transportation of tar sands. more
