New Member Joins Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project Review Panel

Catherine McKenna, Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change, announced last Friday the appointment of Dr. Douw Steyn as a new member of the Review Panel established to conduct the environment assessment of the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project in Delta, British Columbia.

Dr. Douw Steyn will join Panel Chair, Ms. Jocelyne Beaudet, and panel member, Dr. David Levy, who were appointed to the Review Panel by the Minister on May 31, 2016.

Under the Terms of Reference, the Review Panel will conduct an assessment of the environmental effects of the project, consider mitigation measures, determine whether the project is likely to cause significant adverse effects, and identify any follow-up programs required. Also, the panel will consider comments from the public and Indigenous groups that are received during the assessment.

Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project

The Port Metro Vancouver proposes the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia, approximately 35 km south of Vancouver.

The proposed project, to be located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals, would provide an additional 2.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units of container capacity per year at Roberts Bank.
