These fools that think they can use the Court as a weapon against a one hundred million dollar per year project are just getting their first dose of come-uppance with a SLAPP motion to quiet their ill advised suit.

No group of underfunded gadflies will be able to stop this oil deal with private attorneys against a mega firm that takes no prisoners on its way to making money.

What they should be working on is a recall of Nordbak to take a vote away from the larger share of the income going into private pockets. That is city money.

The residents of Whittier who are now finally being informed by their neighbours and friends about the drilling are speaking up. I just found about this two months ago. Why weren't all the residents advised of this drilling to begin with? All the deals about drilling for oil were done in a very hushed manner. We live here and we must be informed and should have a say in what should and can be done for the well being of the future generations of Whittier, not be governed by a handfull of elected officials. Such a tragic state of affairs!

Where have you been? Since 2008, the Oil drilling issue was publicized in the news, Internet and at city meetings. I agree that the award of contract for drilling was subdued, typical city matters- nobody is watching the action as it develops.
