  • Potential impact of the DP4 project on birdlife in the Fraser Estuary
  • As I explain in more detail in the attached document, I am concerned about the potential impact of the DP4 project on wildlife, and in particular the impact of the proposed project on the large number of birds that use the area between the Tsawwassen Ferry Jetty and the port causeway in winter.

  • 1 Comments on the Global Container Ports Delta Port Berth 4 Initial Project Description Michelle Baudais 24 November 2020 I attended the 10 November information session on the DeltaPort Berth 4 expansion, and have reviewed the initial project proposal created by GCT. I would like to make a few comments on the initial project proposal, and make some suggestions for the impact assessment.

The Lower Fraser River and Estuary have already lost ...

  • Global Container Terminals Deltaport Expansion Berth 4 Project Submitted by Roger Emsley Executive Director Against Port Expansion Community Group 1. Introduction It is time to recognize that there must be no further port or industrial development on Roberts Bank. This includes the recent proposal to add a fourth berth to the Deltaport Container Terminal. Global Container Terminals has initiated a project to expand its existing Deltaport three-berth container terminal on Roberts Bank in Delta BC by the addition of a fourth berth and other ancillary activities. Against Port Expansion in the Fraser Estuary BC (APE) is a broad-based community group of concerned citizens, consisting of people from various backgrounds including business owners, members of the work force, scientists, and environmental groups. APE is totally opposed to any further port development in the Lower Fraser and its Estuary, therefore we are opposed to the Deltaport Berth Four ...
