Great news. Now however it looks like "More U.S. Coal Exports Destined For Vancouver's Port, Say Environmentalists". In addition, "Delta Port - TSI (Terminal Systems Inc)" are expanding. There was a blockade of the railway line last year into Delta Port and I can see more action if this environmental travesty is allowed to continue.

There is speculation that these coal ports could be as damaging or more damaging to the environment than the KXL pipeline. Scary thought?
