Williams Lake supports move to burn more rail ties in city
A plan to incinerate railway ties was stopped in Kamloops, but is supported by Williams Lake council
Tempers flared a few years ago in Kamloops when a proposal was put forward to incinerate railway ties in the city.
In the face of environmental concerns, the idea fizzled; city council eventually voted no.
Now, a similar proposal has surfaced in Williams Lake, but council has come out in support.
Atlantic Power Corporation already has an operation in Williams Lake.
They generate power using wood waste from local mills as their fuel supply and now they want to add creosote-soaked railway ties to the mix.
Williams Lake city councillor Scott Nelson spoke with Daybreak.
