It's time for the Government of Canada to Reject Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (RBT2).
Because the Port of Vancouver’s RBT2 project is a major economic and environmental risk for Canada.
Because there is a better plan for West Coast container terminal capacity – GCT Global Container Terminal’s Deltaport Berth 4 (DP4).
DP4’s smaller footprint and incremental approach means less environmental impact and less cost. And, unlike the Port of Vancouver’s $3.5 billion plan, DP4 is privately-funded and therefore not a risk to taxpayers.
The Port’s RBT2 mega-project builds a massive artificial island in the ecologically sensitive Salish Sea, causing damage Environment Canada says will be “permanent, irreversible, and continuous” and cause an “unmitigable species-level risk to the Western Sandpiper and other shorebirds.”
It's time for the Government of Canada to Reject RBT2.
