COULD THIS BE COAL DUST?
Watch this video of Fraser Surrey Docks and watch as the dust cloud spreads from the loading of a ship...straight into Quennsborough. If you are concerned about the distribution of coal and the health affects of coal dust at Fraser Surrey Docks? Please send your compaint to PORT METRO VANCOUVER.
AIR QUALITY concerns are growing after incidents such as a discharge of Soy dust from the docks oocured last year. Port Metro fines FSD for breech of 'air quality management bylaw'. Click the link for the story in 24 Hours Vancouver.

If you are one of the estimated 10,000 treasure hunters, you will love browsing the nearly 200 tables filled to capacity with quality, unique finds. To make your ‘discovering’ a more enjoyable experience, the QCB has brought together a series of ‘festival’ activities that are sure to entertain.
This year we offer 3 LIVE STAGES featuring the musical styling’s of LOS CASTORES (Mariachi) and WESTMINSTER AVENUE (Jazz), both founded by the New Westminster Secondary School music program and a sure hit with the younger set. For the rockers in the crowd, LEGAL LIMIT is back for their 8th year. For the more mature set, we are please to welcome back for their second year the twenty piece ROYAL WESTMINSTER REGIMENT BAND. As we go to press, organizers are still in negotiations with musical groups wanting to be a part of this incredible festival, such as a bag pipe ensemble. So please revisit this site for further event developments. We are pleased to announce that the piping trio from The OFFICERS OF THE HONOURABLE will be on hand plus a smart FUNK BAND will take the stages.
10:30-11:00 Funk Band
11:15-12:00 Jazz Trio
12:15-1:00 Los Castores Mariachi
1:15-2:00 Jazz Trio
2:15-3:00 Rock Band Westminster Avenue
What would a festival be without the quintessential ‘festival food’? For the past 8 years the NEW WESTMINSTER LIONS CLUB has been serving up yummy hot dogs (don’t forget the fried onions on top) and soft drink at a great price – to raise important funds for their charity. A testament to how good their dogs are – they sell out every year !
We also are excited to bring you three Food Truck that are sure to please the sensitive palettes of foodies everywhere. TIN LIZZIE, has been a staple for the past 8 years and serves up the most addictive ‘mini donuts’ …as well as an abundance of other food and beverage items. DOUGIE DOG will be serving up his famous creations that earned him two audiences with the Dragons Den, a feature on Eat Street and the position of #1 Food Truck by the Georgia Straight. If dogs aren’t your thing, then bring on the heat with the edibles from CARIBBEAN REEF TRUCK. Then walk a little ways further and cool off with MR. COOL ICE CREAM.
Of course, we encourage all to stop into RIVER MARKET to see what great food outlets they offer your appetite. Looking for fresh fruit, be sure to stop by SUMMERFIELDS FARMS and buy the most flavourful blueberry’s.
There are a lot of young people at the QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale! In addition to their shrewd negotiations at the tables for nickel trinkets (yes parents, a dollar can go a long way at this event), they want to let off a little steam. Returning by popular demand are the CLOWNS IN ACTION. This duo of balloon artists form wonderful creations to the astonishment of young on-lookers. SAVVY SPACE SOLUTIONS are back again to provide Face Painting for those patient enough to sit still long enough for a butterfly or ladybug! The Kidz Zone is sponsored by KNOWLEDGE FIRST FINANCIAL.
PET CENTRE Wow, this event has officially gone to the dawgs.... Pet Zone sponsor UPTOWN DAWGS that is. Bring your people-friendly dogs and let them luxuriate in the ‘Hound Lounge’, get a nail painted neon, sample some doggie treats, get a refreshing wash-down or just get a hydrating drink of water.
You are encouraged to experience all the additional ‘festival’ attractions this event offers. SHIMMY FOR THE SOUL Belly Dancers (see last years crowd stopping performance_ click here) were a mesmerizing hit for the crowds last year and are eager to show you their moves again this year. We will also feature a WHITECAPS booth, SFU ATHLETICS area and a special appearance from the DOGWOOD INITIATIVE if you would like to express more serious considers regarding the proposed pipeline and US Coal.
The QCB & BOSA BOARDWALK festival & sale is pleased to announce that over 55 sponsors have generously donated amazing items & services to make up our incredible RAFFLE BASKETS.
