What's up with Port Metro Vancouver?

Free Trade & Gateway Projects

I'm writing a story about Port Metro Vancouver and the Gateway projects (Federal and Provincial), so I thought I'd test this working group as a way to work through some of the details. Below are some preliminary information sources in terms of understanding why this project is being rolled out.

Stephen Harper speaks on the "largest infrastructure development program in this country in over half a century."

WESTAC's Rolling Retreat Report lays out industry's blue skies scenario for the gateway project.

The BC Government's Pacific Gateway Strategy Action Plan Overview.

Projects underway by Seaport Consultants.

Info from the Corridor Initiative.

The work done by the Canada West Foundation, which Stephen Harper called "one of Canada’s premier research institutes."
