Letters: Warfare games and rumbles

Shirley resident speculates on US Navy's training in Olympic Peninsula

Due to a misunderstanding, and failure of clarity on my part, my “note to the editor” became a “letter.”

Most importantly, I’d like to convey critical information for who live on the southern part of Vancouver Island and the US Navy’s plans to conduct electromagnetic warfare games on the Olympic Peninsula.

The two excellent articles by Washington State journalist Dahr Jamail can be found on both the Truthout and his own websites; they were published in December, 2014.

They are:  “Documents Show Navy’s Electromagnetic Warfare Training Would Harm Humans and Wildlife”, and “Navy Plans Electromagnetic War Games Over National Park and Forest in Washington State.”

Cst. Sean Heidman, RCMP, is taking statements about the “booms”; file #2014-5324, tel 250/642-5241, ext. 5333, sean.heidman@rcmp-grc.gc.ca

MP Elizabeth May is taking a serious interest in this matter ( http://www.timescolonist.com/opinion/columnists/les-leyne-the-rumbles-could-be-felt-in-political-world-1.1728617).

Our neighbours on the other side of the Juan de Fuca Strait are doing their best to organize and voice their opposition, and have told me our own actions against this plan will be greatly appreciated.
