WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. — Angry parents have filed an injunction against B.C. Ferries to stop their proposed expansion in Horseshoe Bay.
The injunction was filed yesterday in the B.C. Supreme Court of Canada.
“B.C. Ferries has publicly acknowledged that this $30 million expansion will not accommodate the vehicle traffic today, let alone the province’s needs five years from now,” states the group opposed to the project — the Gleneagles Concerned Parents Committee. “This community is not willing to be ruined over a short-term solution.”
The committee also complains the expansion would have major implications on the health and safety of the local children and will cost taxpayers an outrageous amount of money.
The proposed 12-lane holding area would be able to hold 1285 cars and trucks. The group adds due to the geography of Horseshoe Bay the emissions from these vehicles would become trapped and remain a serious health concern in the area.
