The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Expansion Proposal

The Port of Vancouver has proposed a dramatic expansion in the form of a three-berth container terminal, called Roberts Bank Terminal 2. The development is predicted to increase the number of container shipments to the terminal by 50 percent, also increasing greenhouse gas emissions at a time when strong measures are needed to combat the global climate crisis. The proposed footprint for the project extends into habitat critical for many species in the region, including Southern Resident orcas, wild Pacific salmon and migrating birds.
