I attempted to follow the above link and was unsucessful. Cascade Locks needs to reject the phoney promisses of the Nestles Corporation. Everyone needs to do their homework. Nestles has a very high turn over rate for employees and the minute amount of jobs will not impact the overall economy of Cascade Locks. However, trucks leaving and arriving every few minutes will impact tourism in a negative fashion removing the ambience of the area. Furthermore, I sincerely hope everyone who believes Nestles propagnda realizes by allowing Nestles into Cascade Locks, the water that is currently owned by the Citizens of Oregon, will indeed be owned by the great Nestles Corporation. This summer there are droughts all over our great country. Should a drought occure in Cascade Locks, the citizens would have no legal right to the water. Nestles Corporation's concern is to make a profit, not what is best for Oregonians now or the future generations. I implore all Oregonians to becoming active in keeping our natural resources protected for our future and our childrens futures as well. Nestles is not going to ride in on the white horse and save a down economy in Oregon. They will however rape and pilfer resourses in the name of Corporate greed.
