Wyoming coal could go through Canada


Many Wyoming leaders would like to send coal produced in the state to booming Asian markets, but opposition in the Pacific Northwest has prevented that.

West Coast ports are needed to ship coal to Asia, but political leaders and environmental groups in Oregon and Washington have kept the coal away.

So Wyoming Governor Matt Mead will visit Canadian ports during his trade trip to our country's northern neighbor this week.

The move suggests Wyoming could go elsewhere for shipping if Oregon and Washington are off the table.  But Mead says he wants to learn more about coal shipping concerns that both regions have.
