Canpotex gets green light to build export terminal in B.C
OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canpotex, the offshore selling agency for potash mined in the Western Canadian province of Saskatchewan, on Wednesday received government approval to build a new export terminal at the port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, north of Vancouver.
Federal Environment Minister Peter Kent said in a statement that the terminal was not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
Canpotex will work on the terminal project together with Canadian National Railway (CNR.TO: Quote), which hauls some of the agency's potash on its southern British Columbia line.
