Driven by Gateway and the South Fraser Perimeter Road, the industrialization of farmland and wildlife habitat in the Fraser Delta has reached a tipping point. Together with the provincial and federal governments, global shipping companies and land speculators have big plans for this region. The proposed Deltaport Terminal 2 would triple container capacity. But that’s just the start! A sprawling Free Trade Zone (FTZ) stretching from the port causeway to Hwy 17 is planned: with a huge railway switching yard, truck terminals, and warehouses. The proposed FTZ also ties into YVR expansion and possible inland terminals; extending the potential industrialization zone from Sea Island to Barnston Island—and everything in between. And that is just what we know about for sure.

But people are fighting back. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! A rally and march has been called in Ladner:

What: Rally and March for the Fraser Delta
When: Saturday June 16, 1 pm
Where: Magee Park in Ladner (Delta), just south of Ladner Trunk Road & Arthur Drive. On the 601 bus route from Canada Line (map)
