Westshore Terminals has enabled the Ladner Rotary Splash Park to make a significant advance towards opening in Memorial Park by next summer with its $50,000 sponsorship, presented by Westshore’s Vice President and General Manager Glenn Dudar (2nd left) to Ladner Rotary’s Past President Walt Hayward, Splash Park Committee Chair Irene Forcier and Peter Roaf.
Since it opened in 1970 at Delta's Roberts Bank, Westshore Terminals has become Canada’s busiest coal terminal, handling over 33 million tonnes of coal annually, from BC, Alberta and Montana, en route to markets in Asia, Europe and South America.
Coal is a critical ingredient in the manufacturing of steel and is the only source of electricity for more than 40 percent of the world’s population.
Westshore's operations provide billions in dollars of export revenue for Canada and British Columbia and results in hundreds of millions of dollars spent each year on local goods and services from businesses in Delta and across the province and generous support for the local community.
