Photos: Pacific Coast Terminals hosts open house

Community welcomed to Port Moody terminal...

Despite a bit of rain, the open house at Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT) was the place to be in Port Moody on Saturday, June 30. Visitors were treated to music, magicians, food and much more while learning about the many changes that have taken place at the terminal over the past few years. A tour of the new storage shed for K&S Potash Canada’s potash was a highlight, as was the sight of the vessel, the Atlantic Mexico – a 189-metre-long bulk carrier at berth.

In addition to many activities for kids and the whole family (face painting, crafts and balloon animals!), a number of community organizations set up displays to provide information about their services (the Port Moody Arts Centre and the Rotary Club just to name a couple) as did industry representatives like the Port of Vancouver and K&S Potash Canada. Numerous displays throughout the site provided detailed information about their activities and products with representatives on hand to answer questions and discuss operations. CP Rail representatives were also on hand to offer tours of a rail car.

Overall, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
