........COAL.......

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.

Please visit the QCB April 2013 web post for more background and contacts on the coal issue.
