The Port of Vancouver is advertising on television to convince us how much they care for the Fraser River.
Living near the Fraser Surrey Docks, I have heard almost continuous pile driving for quite some time.
This has me wondering, once the George Massey Tunnel is replaced by a bridge, will we see much larger ships using the river, possibly to load U.S. thermal coal for China?
Also, as the Kinder Morgan pipeline runs through Surrey, is it possible they could divert it to Fraser Surrey Docks instead of under the Fraser to Burnaby?
This would see a considerable number of ships, especially tankers, using the Fraser. What would this do for the salmon, to say nothing of the risk of a collision?
