Ridley Users not thrilled with latest announcement

Last week Ridley Terminals announced that it had secured a contract with the American coal company Arch Resources, to use port facilities at Ridley to ship product from the US to Asia.

And while it may be good business for Ridley, for the current roster of port users the arrival of volume from America is providing to be a cause of concern for the coal producers of Alberta and Northeast British Columbia who fear of bottlenecks for their product.

One company Teck Resources worries that the impact of the Arch resources contract may require Teck to rethink it's plans to reopen the Quintette coal mine.

They outlined their thoughts on the latest developments at Ridley through this article in the Tumbler Ridge News.
