International waters

The editorial ``Saving More Than Oil,'' Sept. 13, states: ``Washington State Gov. Mike Lowry (D) recently ordered all oil tankers serving Canada via western Washington's inland passages to file spill-prevention plans with the state.''

We in Canada applaud this requirement. However, these ``inland passages'' are not Washington's; the Strait of Juan de Fuca is an international waterway, bordered on the east side by Canada along the coast of British Columbia.

We appreciate the greater coverage the Monitor has been giving to Canadian affairs. E. J. Johnston, Victoria, Canada
