Coal on ships bad idea

Surrey – The Editor, So Fraser Surrey Docks wishes to change their plans for a coal dock on the Fraser to load the coal directly into ships instead of barges.

On Oct. 27 2013, a delightful, sunny Sunday, a rally was held on the Quay in New Westminster to oppose plans for the coal dock.

Across the river at FSD, a ship was being loaded when a large cloud of dust erupted into the air. We were not sure what type of cargo was being loaded but are we to believe the same situation will not occur if coal is the cargo?
