Photos: Train derailment sends coal into Burnaby creek
On Saturday (January 11), several CP cars went off the CN railway tracks in Burnaby.
The cars were carrying coal, some of which spilled into Silver Creek, a protected waterway that flows into Burnaby Lake.
According to a Burnaby NewsLeader report, the metallurgical coal was headed for Neptune Terminals in North Vancouver for export.
VTACC opposed last year's approval of the expansion of coal exports at Neptune, and is fighting a coal terminal proposal at Fraser Surrey Docks.
