VICTORIA, B.C. — An injunction was filed to the B.C. Supreme Court yesterday attempting to halt the $30-million expansion of B.C. Ferries’ Horseshoe Bay terminal.

The injunction was filed by members of the Gleneagles Concerned Parents Committee (GCPC). The group has a number of environmental concerns about the project, which is taking place near Gleneagles Elementary School.

The expansion includes increasing the size of the terminal’s truck parking lot.

B.C. Liberal leader Gordon Campbell has jumped on board with the GCPC. He has written to Deputy Premier Joy McPhail requesting an immediate halt to the project.

The case continues before the court today.
