Activists to Move Further Against Fraser Surrey Docks in 2014

The Globe and Mail reported that in 2014, activists plan to try to get the planned Fraser Surrey Docks direct-transfer coal facility on the British Columbia government’s agenda. Thus far, the provincial government has not commented on the issue.

As quoted in the market news:

‘Come January, we’ll start to focus pressure on the province,’ Kevin Washbrook, a spokesman for the group Voters Taking Action on Climate Change, said in a recent e-mail.

‘They [the provincial government] have so far been silent on this, even though they have complete power to spike the Texada end of this proposal by refusing a permit to expand the coal-handling facilities there. The port [Port Metro Vancouver] has no say in that decision. No Texada terminal, no barging coal from Surrey, and the project is dead.’
