  • P.O. Box 160, 115 Front Road Port Rowan, Ontario Canada N0E 1M0 BIRDSCANADA.ORG Birds Canada November 27, 2020 Submission to Delta Port 4 Impact Assessment Process Birds Canada recommends that all major projects on the Fraser Delta currently within a federal or provincial impact assessment process be paused until a regional impact assessment for the Fraser Delta can be completed. We therefore recommend this Impact Assessment be paused and Delta Port 4 send a request to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada to utilize the powers under section 91(3) of the Impact Assessment Act to initiate a regional impact assessment for the Fraser Delta. The current Delta Port 4 project is directly adjacent to the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 project (RBT2), and many of the findings that have arisen from that assessment are relevant to the current Delta Port 4 impact assessment. The RBT2 panel found that “Based on the numerous submissions provided ...

  • Potential impact of the DP4 project on birdlife in the Fraser Estuary
  • As I explain in more detail in the attached document, I am concerned about the potential impact of the DP4 project on wildlife, and in particular the impact of the proposed project on the large number of birds that use the area between the Tsawwassen Ferry Jetty and the port causeway in winter.

  • 1 Comments on the Global Container Ports Delta Port Berth 4 Initial Project Description Michelle Baudais 24 November 2020 I attended the 10 November information session on the DeltaPort Berth 4 expansion, and have reviewed the initial project proposal created by GCT. I would like to make a few comments on the initial project proposal, and make some suggestions for the impact assessment. Although the GCT project proposal mentions the potential impact of their project on biofilm on Robert’s Bank, an issue that was identified during the evaluation of the proposed Roberts Bank T2 project, the DP4 project would primarily impact the area between the port causeway and the Tsawwassen Ferry Jetty. This area is used by large numbers of overwintering ducks and other water birds that are not biofilm feeders. When evaluating the potential impact of the DP4 project I believe that the following factors should be considered: 1. Potential impact of the expanded port, ...
