The Grange is hosting a public discussion on the oil trains in the Champlain Valley on Tuesday, August 19 at 7:00 pm.
Brian Mann, reporter for North Country Public Radio and National Public Radio is the featured speaker. Brian has covered the oil industry for 25 years, from the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989 to the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf. Most recently, he has written and reported on the oil trains in the North Country and on the oil train explosion and its aftermath in Lac-Megantic, Quebec. Brian lives in Saranac Lake and Westport.
