If for no other reason than the economics in terms of providing both a shorter southbound run and an opportunity to visit the far more interesting locales of Vancouver and Victoria the alternative of a southern terminus move has a great deal of merit.

Then too the greediness of Seattle and the uncooperative Washington congressional delegation certainly deserve some attention from Alaska in terms of a terminal change threat generating some political unrest in the state of Washington and some acknowledgment that Seattle does need to pay heed to mutual economic goals. Perhaps also a worthwhile change.

Let us therefore commend Representative Kurt Olson on his foresight and vision and see what Vancouver does have to offer.
