Nearly three years ago, the Port of Vancouver signed a lease with companies that want to build the largest oil-by-rail terminal in the country. But the project has not gone as planned and may now be running out of time.
The Port of Vancouver has until Aug. 1 to decide if it wants to opt out of a lease with companies planning to build the terminal.
The opposition to the proposal has been intense, with the brunt of it felt by leaders at the port.
“The interesting thing in this whole phenomena has been the passion of the opponents," said port Commissioner Brian Wolfe.
