Our first transparency campaign amplified public concerns about the building of a coal export terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks on the Fraser River.

Currently, the campaign is generating public comments asking the federal government to reform our port structure.

In December 2012, the first public transparency campaign was launched at to publicize comments about the universally opposed Fraser Surrey Docks coal export facility proposal. Port Metro Vancouver allowed 30 days of unpublished commenting and promised only to issue a summary document of people’s concerns. When the deadline had expired, about 3500 comments had been received, forwarded and published on the Real Port Hearings website. Only 6 were in favour of the proposal.
