In April 2015, the Council of Canadians Delta-Richmond chapter joined with Against Port Expansion and others to witness the migration stopover of western sandpipers on Roberts Bank.
The Council of Canadians Delta-Richmond chapter has campaigned for 6+ years against the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project.
The proponent's website notes, "The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project is a proposed new three-berth container terminal at Roberts Bank in Delta, B.C., on Canada’s west coast. The Project would provide 2.4 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of container capacity and is needed to meet forecasted demand for trade of goods in containers."
Roberts Bank is an undersea bank on the south side of the estuary of the Fraser River approximately 35 kilometers south of Vancouver.
