The Port of Halifax has discussed with surveys and presented since 2015 the different options to structure its growth, profiting from the expansions of containerized cargo. In the website created for the online consultation, citizens could get first hand information on the different alternatives and take the survey to express their opinion and preferences. Besides information about the planning alternatives, the website also includes didactic material and port terminology to help locals to understand what is been discussed, so they can give a well educated opinion.
