Pakootas is for us

Letter to the Editor


When Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Rep. Morton were praising Teck Cominco for their polluting the Columbia River and Lake Roosevelt, Joe Pakootas sued the Canadian firm and is responsible for a landmark decision to protect international boundaries and stopped the polluting of heavy metals into our rivers.

Cathy also voted in Congress to not hold Monsanto liable for the PCBs and runoff from their chemical product into the Spokane River. Was the fact that she was raised in Hazelton, British Columbia, and the chase for the almighty dollar what motivated her? Once again, she received campaign contributions and left the cleanup to us.

Joe has been fighting for Eastern Washington and its people for decades! He is for us. Cathy is against us.
