At the April 28, 2014 Regular Meeting, Delta Council received a report on the outcome of the April 8, 2014 Independent Interagency Review Committee meeting. 

The Committee agreed to draft a joint letter to Port Metro Vancouver requesting that Port Metro Vancouver postpone any decision regarding the Fraser Surrey Docks coal facility application until the outstanding issues identified by the Committee have been addressed, specifically in relation to the human health impact assessment and the Metro Vancouver Air Quality Permit. Delta Council authorized the Chief Administrative Officer to sign this letter and authorized Mayor Lois E. Jackson to send a letter to Port Metro Vancouver in support of the recommendations of the Committee.
