Bulk Commodities - Discussion & Q&A

Facilitator: Bruce Wood - Hamilton Port Authority

CBRM Councillor Jim MacLeod introduced guest speaker Bruce Wood, Hamilton Port Authority who started his break-out session by sharing his experiences running the port in Hamilton and what the expectations could be like should a bulk commodities terminal be put in place.

Session talking points:

- Problems with dust suppression and complaints from people who live near there?

- Is new business coming in simply the work of the port or was government involved in financing and job creation?

- Would the opportunity have come your way without the investment in the infrastructure. Where did all the funding come from?
