"The Fraser Port (New Westminster) began life 125 years ago as British Columbia's pioneer mainland harbour, funnelling supplies to the goldfields upstream from the tiny capital town of New Westminster. With the coming of rail from eastern Canada, Fraser Port was outstripped by the mushroom growth of its better-placed rival, Vancouver. After WWI, however, New Westminster began a comeback under the leadership of the leadership of a newly formed harbour commission - innovative for its times, sometimes cool, sometimes feisty, and always deeply involved with the community it served."
