Main Text
Annacis Island, lying in the harbour of New Westminster, B.C., is a new concept in industrial location. The area was reclaimed from the waters of the Fraser River by pumping sand from the adjacent river channel to a height well above the maximum high water level. Of the 1200-acre project 200 have been reclaimed in two years and over 20 companies are already hard at work.
