Richmond's mayor says it's good news the B.C. government has suspended its work on a project to pipe jet fuel to YVR.
Malcolm Brodie and council have long opposed the plan to transport fuel along the south arm of the Fraser River, which is currently in the environmental assessment stage.
"So for the minister of the environment to postpone a decision to get the very latest of information to look at that issue alone, very carefully (apparently there's going to be a symposium on some of it in March), we think that that's a very good move. Let's get the best information we can before a decision is made."
He says the project, in general, needs to go back to the drawing board because the developer has over-emphasized the need for long-term fuel supply.
